Coronavirus closures and updates

Coronavirus closures and updates

The following information is posted on the Department of Health's Plan for Pennsylvania.

Potter, Tioga and McKean counties will move into the 'Green Phase' of repoening at 12:01 a.m. next Friday, May 29.

Counties advance from yellow to green if the overall risk of contracting the coronavirus remains mitigated for fourteen days.

The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay at home and business closure orders to allow the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.

It will be equally important to continue to monitor public health indicators and adjust orders and restrictions as necessary to ensure the spread of disease remains at a minimum.
