With 24 Pennsylvania counties set to move into the “yellow phase” on Friday, the Wolf administration on Thursday extended its stay at home order for the rest of the state to June 4.

“The extended stay-at-home order remains the same as the original statewide stay-at-home order announced on April 1, which was set to expire tonight [Thursday] at midnight and is now extended to June 4,” the administration said in a statement. “The yellow phase order provides guidance for those counties entering the yellow phase of reopening tomorrow.”

The administration’s yellow phase order, which allows for the restricted reopening of businesses, applies to Bradford, Cameron, Centre, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Forest, Jefferson, Lawrence, Lycoming, McKean, Mercer, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, Union, Venango, and Warren counties.
