Swearing-in ceremonies for Schuylkill County officials who won election in November will be altered Tuesday morning due to COVID restrictions at the Courthouse.

The restrictions on who can attend the swearing-in ceremonies was announced in an email from President Judge William Baldwin a few days before Christmas. The ceremonies are scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Courthouse.

Baldwin says only “close relatives and necessary personnel” may attend the ceremonies in person.

Courthouse employees will be allowed to attend the ceremonies but only virtually. Apparently, it’s OK for them to gather in Courtroom 7, where a broadcast of the event will be played.

Those not allowed to attend the ceremonies because of this COVID restriction will be able to watch via Zoom.

The highlight of the event likely will be the swearing in of 2 Court of Common Pleas Judges, Christina Hale and Chris Hobbs.

    From “15 days to slow the spread” and “if you get vaccinated you can’t get infected” to the present-day…2 years+ later, here we are…the installed regime says “Covid will find you” after all the deceit and lies, while pushing multiple jabs and boosters forever, along with masks forever, lockdowns at every turn, small business choked out, vaccine mandates, job terminations, etc…if you don’t know by now, you’ll never know…

      …on a side note, “masks” add an extra layer of criminality and disguise to an already lawless society, ala the scumbag Weis wallet thieves (alleged)…we used to play, as young boys, with hankies around our faces, to impersonate robbers…now it’s everyday and everybody as criminal activity is skyrocketing and shrugged off by local, state and federal authorities
