With the holiday season approaching, California last week released new guidelines for socializing that prohibit gatherings among more than three households.

While coronavirus cases are dipping — and hospitalizations and deaths are at their lowest levels in months — officials are emphasizing the importance of maintaining health safety measures.

“We are entering into the holidays, but also we’re entering into the part of the year when things cool down and people are more likely to congregate … in settings that put their physical proximity and likelihood of transmitting disease at higher risk,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday.

“Don’t be misled that this disease is any less deadly. Quite the contrary — it is as deadly as it’s ever been in the context of those that are high risk.”

Scott’s Family Resort from ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ for sale by owners

For more than 150 years, Scott’s Family Resort has beckoned families to its nearly 1,000 bucolic acres.

But the waterfront compound in Deposit, New York — just under a three-hour drive from the city — is best known as the idyllic backdrop for a few beloved episodes of Amazon Prime’s hit series, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

The Catskills retreat in Delaware County, near Binghamton in upstate New York, has been operating since 1869.

But now, due to lingering debts and the ailing health of its owners, who are in their 90s, the Scott family is ready to pass the torch to a new proprietor for $6 million. The auction for the property ended on Sept. 17 without a qualified bid, so it still remains on the market.

Jana Kramer Defends Family Vacation During COVID-19 Pandemic

Quitting quarantine! Jana Kramer, Mike Caussin and their two kids left on their first solo vacation as a family of four on Thursday, October 8, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Whenever we have traveled with them in the past, there was always work attached to it,” the actress, 36, captioned an Instagram selfie with daughter Jolie, 4, and son Jace, 22 months. “This time no work, and all fun. Also, first time on a plane since March. And COVID or not I’m still that crazy lady that wipes down every seat nook and cranny. #jolieselfie.”

In the social media upload, Kramer and the former professional football player, 33, smiled while wearing face masks. The “Untouchable” singer held her son while Jolie snapped the selfie in a Minnie Mouse-patterned mask.

When a Politically Divided Family Goes on Vacation

RETIREES RICHARD AND LISA Starling are Georgia natives turned Cornell academics; their son Michael and his wife, Diane, are barely getting by in Texas; their son Thad and his boyfriend, Jake, live comfortably in Brooklyn. These family members voted for different candidates. Their experiences of religion range from solace to trauma, they have an unwritten list of topics they don’t discuss, and it takes tragedy and close confines to break open their surface-level peace and push them into the conversations they’ve been avoiding.

These characters appear in David James Poissant’s latest novel Lake Life, which is set in 2018 but explores family dynamics that feel especially relevant in 2020. Jen Hinst-White spoke with Poissant in late July, five months into COVID-19 social distancing, two months after George Floyd’s death and the resulting groundswell of protest, and three months before the national election.

11 elections, 3 wins: The Ahmed Family of Maryland doesn’t give up

The Ahmed family in Bowie, Maryland, USA, is remarkable in more ways than one. Between Shukoor Ahmed, 58, and his two daughters – Raaheela, 27, and Shabnam, 25 – the family has contested and campaigned for 11 elections in their district from 1998 onwards. Except for three – including when Raaheela was elected by a decisive majority of almost 32,000 votes to Prince George’s County Board of Education, District 5, in 2016 – they lost all the others.

And yet, determined to represent religious minorities and people of colour, and to use the electoral platform to raise vital social, economic and political issues, they showed up time and time again.

This month, Raaheela will run for reelection, but since her position is uncontested, she is likely to continue for another four-year term. This is the 12th

Michael J. Driscoll, executive who led family construction firm, dies at 87

Michael J. Driscoll, 87, of Lafayette Hill, a contractor who led the family-owned Driscoll Construction Co., died Thursday, Oct. 1, of complications from Alzheimer’s disease at his home.

The firm’s numerous projects, carried out under Mr. Driscoll’s tenure, included the $67.5 million rebuilding of the South Street Bridge, which stretched from 2008 to 2010.

“Anybody who drives around this area has seen some of his work,” said his daughter Anita Driscoll Duquette.

Born to James Norbert and Virginia Kerns Driscoll in White Plains, N.Y., Mr. Driscoll moved with his family to Mount Airy’s Durham Street neighborhood in 1944.

He graduated from St. Joseph’s Preparatory School in Philadelphia, where he was All-Catholic in basketball, football, and golf and was voted the Best All-Around Athlete in the Class of 1951.
