Wolf orders non-life-sustaining businesses in PA to close doors


HARRISBURG, PA — Gov. Tom Wolf has ordered all "non-life-sustaining" businesses in Pennsylvania to close their physical locations by 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 19. The measure is intended to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Days ago, when Wolf strongly urged all "non-essential businesses" to close for two weeks, he said that he would not be enforcing the recommendation. Wolf is now going a step further and saying that non-life-sustaining businesses that do not close their doors could receive citations, fines or license suspensions.

PA will begin enforcement of the order at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, March 21.
