The administration will utilize a three-phase matrix to determine when counties and/or regions are ready to begin easing some restrictions on work, congregate settings, and social interactions.
This is the most stringent phase created under a statewide stay-at-home order. Gyms are closed in this period.
As regions or counties move into the yellow phase, some restrictions on work and social interaction will ease while others, such as closures of schools, gyms, and other indoor recreation centers, hair and nail salons, as well as limitations around large gatherings, remain in place.
Indoor Recreation, Health and Wellness Facilities, and Personal Care Services (such as gyms and spas) Open at 50% Occupancy with Appointments Strongly Encouraged.
Pa. counties in the red, yellow, and green phases
Gov. Tom Wolf announced that eight additional counties will move to the "yellow" phase of reduced restrictions by May 29. Wolf said he anticipates that the remaining 10 "red" counties — almost all in southeastern Pennsylvania — will potentially be allowed to enter the yellow phase on June 5. Also, 18 counties on May 29 will move to the "green" phase, which lifts the stay-at-home order and allows all businesses to reopen, but with many limited to 50% capacity.
