Gov. Wolf Extends Stay-at-Home Order for Red Phase Counties Until June 4

With the April 1 statewide stay-at-home orders set to expire Thursday at midnight, Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine extended the orders for all counties in red and signed new orders for the 24 counties moving to yellow on May 8th.

The extended stay-at-home order (which applies to Berks County) remains the same as the original statewide stay-at-home order announced on April 1, which was set to expire tonight at midnight and is now extended to June 4. The yellow phase order provides guidance for those counties entering the yellow phase of reopening tomorrow.

The yellow phase order also addresses the limited reopening of businesses in the yellow phase, detailing those businesses previously deemed non-life-sustaining as being permitted to reopen if they follow the guidance for safety for staff, customers, and facility.
