YORK, Pa. –
On Friday, 49 of 67 Pennsylvania states will move from the Red Phase to the Yellow Phase. In Governor Tom Wolf’s daily update on state COVID-19 mitigation efforts, he warned that many popular summer events might still be canceled or downsized.
In the Yellow Phase, meetings are allowed as long as they involve 25 people or fewer. Summer events such as fairs and sporting meetings can be reconfigured to include COVID-19 mitigation efforts. But Governor Wolf stressed the importance of maintaining social distance at these events, citing the annual event York State Fair.
“In Yellow, you still want to avoid meeting more than 25 people in a closed room,” Governor Wolf said. “As long as you can practice social distance, the York Fair will be fine. As long as you have packed people into the stands, that will be a problem.”
The York State Fair is scheduled for July 24 through August 2.
In Wednesday’s renewal call with reporters, the governor also explained the reasons behind the veto of the 2412 Bill, which would allow the real estate industry to reopen with some restrictions. The governor felt the restrictions did not include adequate safety protocols, and believed the bill would cut too many property transfer requirements, including the ability of the city government to conduct safety inspections and issue permits for use and occupancy.
“Basically it says that you can open a lot of things by getting unique local licenses and permits and things like that,” Governor Wolf said. “Local municipalities don’t think it’s a hot idea, and I agree with them.”
Full capacity events and full economic reopening are unlikely to occur until the COVID-19 vaccine is available, Governor Wolf said.
