Pennsylvania business shutdown enforcement begins this morning

Starting at 8 a.m., Gov.  Wolf’s order that all non-life sustaining business shut down, will be enforced.

 

The governor originally said enforcement would begin at 8 p.m., Thursday, but the number of waiver requests coming in for businesses that wanted to be considered life-sustaining led the administration to delay the order.

“We understand the challenges facing these businesses and all Pennsylvanians. We have worked to be responsive and flexible so that businesses can apply for a waiver to keep their physical locations open if they perform life-sustaining work.

A waiver application can be found here.

The governor’s office said that all decisions will be communicated by email and will balance public health, safety, and the security of industry supply chains supporting life sustaining businesses.
