Denver City Council holds the plastic bag fees for one more year
The Denver City Council to waive plastic bag fee for one more year as disposable bags to be the new norm amidst the present situation of the world.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has duly prompted many stores in the city to ban reusable bags while some stores have chosen to restrict their usage as one-time-use bags are supposedly a better option.
Some stores are still allowing their customers to carry their own reusable bags if they are willing to bag their own goods.
Due to the virus being highly contagious, the step to use single-use plastic seems to be a sensible one as they are supposed to be more sterile, and also them being disposable makes the chances of virus being spread through them less likely.
The city of Denver was to implement a 10-cent fee for disposable bags, beginning from July 1, the decision was taken in December, before the pandemic.
When pollution was a prominent problem, and plastic was a big contributor to the issue, so the city had decided to follow into the steps of other cities such as colorado and implement a fee on plastic bags to discourage their use.

Maryland and Its Counties Take It One Day at a Time - The COVID-19 Reopening Plan
There's an old gospel / country song that sings, "One day at a time, Sweet Jesus," in lament over the hardship of life's struggles. Our long and slow trek to getting back to normal has wearied many a traveler.
Maryland's Governor Larry Hogan recently announced his "Road to Recovery" for the state, which is linked to here - shorturl.at/wBNU9. It contains detailed charts and graphs regarding the progession of the virus but little to no specific or concrete information on dates or times for resuming our activities. As the spread of infection has remained very active, and therefore unpredictable, the Governor is for now moving only with the strictest of caution.
However, he is open to the suggestions of the Trump Administration as to how to proceed; and the guideline given is that no reopening of non-vital venues should take place until there is no increase in viral activity for two weeks. Many jurisdictions within the DC Metro Area, and in particular The District itself, are / is still leary about moving foward, even with such an extensive period of demonstrated improvement.
In response to the local governments' concerns, Mr. Hogan just announced that the Maryland counties which adjoin to DC will have their own say-so on when they open up if the start times exceed those for the state at large. This mirrors a decision made by Virginia for its Northern Virginia area.
The District of Columbia is a major and congested hub for regional, national and international travel - so it would be understood that it's also thought to be a nexus of Coronavirus transmission.
As the months of isolation have dragged on there will probably be no definitive answer any time soon as to when we can get back on track.

Iglesia de Miami niega implicaciones en atentado a embajada de Cuba en Washington - CiberCuba
"Lo único que sabemos es que asistió por varios meses a nuestra iglesia en el 2018. Luego supimos que se había mudado de la ciudad" dijo el pastor.
El pastor Frank López, de la Iglesia Doral Jesus Worship Center, negó las supuestas implicaciones de él y su congregación con el atacante a la embajada de Cuba en Estados Unidos, como aseguró este martes el canciller Bruno Rodríguez desde La Habana. "Lo único que sabemos es que asistió por varios meses a nuestra iglesia en el 2018. Luego supimos que se había mudado de la ciudad", dijo el religioso sobre Alexander Alazo, el hombre detenido en Washington por disparar al cuerpo diplomático cubano. En un comunicado obtenido por CiberCuba, López lamenta la situación por la que pasa este cubano y su familia, a quienes tienen presente en sus oraciones. "Nuestro mensaje como iglesia está basado 100% en los principios bíblicos y en el mensaje de Salvación del Señor Jesucristo. Es un lugar donde las puertas están abiertas para todo aquel que quiera venir a adorar y buscar comunión con Dios, sin importar ideales políticos", apuntó. Su respuesta viene después de que el máximo funcionario del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores (MINREX) de Cuba acusó a EE.UU. de ocultar información sobre el atentado a la embajada cubana en Washington. Rodríguez incluyó a la Iglesia Doral Jesus Worship Center, en el noroeste de Miami, y su pastor López entre los supuestos lazos de Alazo con "individuos que pertenecen a agrupaciones que apoyan al actual gobierno de Estados Unidos, pero que también incitan constantemente a la violencia y el odio contra Cuba", según dijo en la conferencia de prensa. El diplomático cubano apuntó que en esa iglesia "se reúnen regularmente personas con conocidas conductas a favor de la agresión, la hostilidad, la violencia y el extremismo contra Cuba". Otra de los acusados por Rodríguez, la opositora cubana Yoaxis Marcheco, también desmintió los supuestos vínculos con Alazo y defendió al pastor López. "No puedo dejar de mencionar la bajeza de este figurín del régimen castristra al mencionar al pastor Frank López de la Iglesia Jesus Worship Center del Doral como alguien que instigó al tirador, no se puede ser más burdo en las acusaciones", escribió en Facebook. Las autoridades de Cuba fueron prudentes en el primer momento que se conoció el ataque de Alazo a la embajada. Sin embargo, posteriormente volvieron al tono habitual de culpar a Estados Unidos y acusarlo incluso de proteger a un terrorista. El canciller cubano fue uno de los primeros en señalar a la administración de Donald Trump y luego el gobernante designado Miguel Díaz-Canel afirmó, en la misma línea, que fue un acto de odio. "No compartir con país atacado toda la información equivale a tolerancia y revive historia de terrorismo contra Cuba", agregó. Por su parte, un alto funcionario del Departamento de Estado ratificó a CiberCuba el compromiso de EE.UU. con la protección de sedes diplomáticas y la embajada estadounidense en Cuba condenó el atentado contra el cuerpo diplomático. El Servicio Secreto y la policía de Washington, por su parte, investigan al cubano implicado en el incidente, quien permanece en prisión preventiva y deberá comparecer este jueves ante el juez. Hasta ahora la información divulgada por documentos judiciales, señala que Alazo padece de esquizofrenia y temor constante a ser perseguido por agentes de la Seguridad del Estado de Cuba. Esa paranoia lo llevó a dormir durante semanas en su automóvil y en la madrugada del 30 de abril atacó al cuerpo diplomático de la isla en Washington con un fusil AK-47. Sin embargo, José Ramón Cabañas, embajador cubano en EE.UU., duda del perfil divulgado del sospechoso y señaló en una entrevista con medios estatales que la información fue filtrada para crear "una matriz de opinión incluso antes de que se conozca la información de manera oficial". Alexander Alazo está acusado de atacar con violencia a funcionarios e instalaciones extranjeras, dañar de forma intencional la propiedad de un gobierno extranjero y usar un arma no registrada, según el documento de acusación del gobierno de EE.UU.
