first_imgAdvertisement Coming Next Arsenal brought in Partey on deadline day (Picture: Getty Images)Stewart Robson says new Arsenal signing Thomas Partey can do ‘every job’ well in Mikel Arteta’s midfield. The Gunners completed a deadline day deal for the 27-year-old, activating his £45 million release clause.Partey spent five seasons in Atletico Madrid’s first team, helping fire Diego Simeone’s side to a Champions League semi-final in 2015-16, as well as a third-placed finish in La Liga last season. Read More ‘With him they’re a much better midfield, that was one area I was still worried about,’ Robson told ESPN FC. ‘[Mohamed] Elneny coming back out of the cold, I’m not sure he gives them quite enough. [Granit] Xhaka is always going to make a mistake and be ill-disciplined at times and [Dani] Ceballos I don’t think is particularly good defensively. ‘With Partey coming in that central midfield position he can do every job you want from a midfield player.‘He’s dynamic enough to win the ball back, he’s dynamic enough with his passing and he’ll run forward as well, so, a good signing for Arsenal.’MORE: Harry Redknapp ‘surprised’ Man Utd, Chelsea or Arsenal did not sign Man City defender John StonesMORE: Mikel Arteta hails ‘high quality’ Thomas Partey as Arsenal shirt number is revealedFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and InstagramFor more stories like this, check our sport page PLAY by Metro Read More Metro Sport ReporterTuesday 6 Oct 2020 10:25 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link3.3kShares deadline day move to West Ham Top articles Full Screen Read More / Comment The combative midfielder will provide some much-needed steel in the middle of the park for the north London club, and former Gunners midfielder Robson believes Partey is the full package and a big upgrade on what they already have.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT Read More About Connatix V67539 Skip Ad Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he rejected 1 min. story Read More Skip Video Settings Advertisement SPONSORED Stewart Robson assesses what new signing Thomas Partey can bring to Arsenal’s midfield 1/1 Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE last_img read more

Gov. Wolf Announces 10 More Testing Sites in Areas with Limited Access

first_img Press Release,  Public Health Governor Tom Wolf announced today that beginning Wednesday, June 17, nine more COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites will open in Walmart parking lots across the state, bringing the total to 19 sites at Walmart locations. Quest Diagnostics and Walmart are working with the department to provide no-cost testing for residents living in areas where there are fewer testing sites. Another testing site has also been added in Venango County, which previously had only one site, bringing the total of new testing sites to 10.“We continue to add testing sites in locations that are convenient for Pennsylvanians and increase the state’s testing capabilities,” Gov. Wolf said. “We do not want any Pennsylvanian in need of a test to have difficulty finding a location close to home for a free test.”“We appreciate the hard work done by health systems, pharmacies, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), medical clinics and other entities that are providing testing for COVID-19 across Pennsylvania,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “When we established our testing strategy, we wanted testing to be accessible, available and adaptable and we are working to meet that challenge. Anyone who believes they have symptoms of COVID-19 can get tested today in Pennsylvania.”Beginning June 17 these sites will be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. to test up to 50 registered patients daily. Registration is required one day in advance. There is no COVID-19 testing inside Walmart stores or Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Centers.The testing sites that will open on Wednesday include:Walmart Supercenter parking lot, 1887 Elmira St, Sayre, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 1665 N Atherton St, State College, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 108 Washington Towne Blvd N, Edinboro, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 2501 W State St, New Castle, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 1566 W Main Street Ext, Grove City, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 9300 State Route 61, Coal Township, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 980 N Susquehanna Trail, Selinsgrove, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 120 AJK Blvd, Lewisburg, PAWalmart Supercenter parking lot, 1169 South Main St, Mansfield, PA“After testing, you are required to return home and self-isolate,” Dr. Levine said. “If symptoms develop or worsen while you are waiting for your test results, talk to your doctor. If you experience a medical emergency, please seek immediate care.”Registrants will be notified of a testing location within a 50-mile radius of them with available appointment times. Patients schedule an appointment time, print a voucher and bring the voucher to the location with them to their appointment. Patients will receive an email with their test results within 24-48 hours, and physicians will call any patient who has a positive test result.In addition to these testing sites, UPMC Northwest opened a COVID-19 testing site in Venango County, where there is currently only one other testing site. The new site is located at 1671 Allegheny Blvd, Reno, PA, and is open each week, Tuesday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. by appointment only. To schedule an appointment at this location, call 1-833-559-7680.Through the work of a number of entities, testing is accessible for Pennsylvanians. As Rite Aid, CVS, Patient First, Walmart and others offer testing for symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals, it has further allowed for Pennsylvanians to get tested close to home. Adding these locations to those already offered by hospitals, health systems, FQHCs, health clinics and other locations significantly expands the testing network in the state.More information about these testing sites and others, including a map of the sites available in Pennsylvania, are listed on the department’s website.The department’s testing plan has remained adaptable. This includes the efforts to ensure everyone in a long-term care facility can be tested, work to ensure counties that currently do not have testing locations can receive them, and other efforts based on the latest data and science surrounding COVID-19.Symptoms of COVID-19 can include:FeverCoughShortness of breath or difficulty breathingDiarrheaChillsRepeating shaking with chillsMuscle painHeadacheSore throatNew loss of taste or smell.Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying.As of 12:00 a.m., June 14, there were 78,798 positive cases of COVID-19 statewide in 67 counties and 6,215 confirmed deaths. Most of the patients hospitalized are 65 or older, and most of the deaths have occurred in patients 65 and older.
