Dauphin, Schuylkill to enter Phase Green June 19
Gov. Tom Wolf announced earlier today that Dauphin and Schuylkill are among eight Pennsylvania counties that have meet the criteria for transitioning from Phase Yellow to Phase Green restrictions on business/social practices.
The transition takes effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday, June 19. Other counties transitioning are Perry, Franklin, Huntingdon, Luzerne, Monroe and Pike.
Green is the least restrictive of the three phases mandated by the Wolf Administration in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Compared with Phase Yellow, it allows more businesses to resume operations (with occupancy limits) expands the number permitted at gatherings to 250 and allows eating and drinking establishments to admit patrons at 50 percent occupancy.
It also allows construction activity to resume at full capacity. It retains the requirement for masks to be worn at in-person business operations and encourages continued working form home where feasible.
More on the transition will be published in the Sentinel’s June 16 print edition.
