Governor Tom Wolf today announced that eight more counties will move to
the green phase of reopening from the COVID-19 pandemic at 12:01 a.m. on
Friday, June 19. These counties include Dauphin, Franklin, Huntingdon,
Luzerne, Monroe, Perry, Pike, and Schuylkill.
Effective today, there are 46 counties in green and 21 in yellow.
The data dashboard of county cases and criteria for reopening
consideration can be found at
Gov. Wolf’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania at
remaining restrictions for counties in yellow or green.
As counties reopen, Pennsylvania continues to see a steady decline in
cases, a positive indicator that its phased, measured reopening plan is
working to balance public health with economic recovery.
According to analysis by the New York Times, new COVID-19 cases are
declining in less than half of all U.S. states and territories.
“In Pennsylvania, not only did we flatten the curve, but we are
continuing to keep case counts down even as we open our commonwealth,”
Wolf said. “We will continue to take a measured, phased approach to
reopening that relies on science and health experts.”
Currently, these 21 counties are in the yellow phase: Berks, Bucks,
Chester, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Franklin, Huntingdon, Lackawanna,
Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton,
Perry, Philadelphia, Pike, Schuylkill, and Susquehanna.
These 46 counties are in the green phase: Adams, Allegheny, Armstrong,
Beaver, Bedford, Blair, Bradford, Butler, Cambria, Cameron, Carbon,
Centre, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Columbia, Crawford, Cumberland,
Elk, Fayette, Forest, Fulton, Greene, Indiana, Juniata, Jefferson,
Lawrence, Lycoming, McKean, Mercer, Mifflin, Montour, Northumberland,
Potter, Snyder, Somerset, Sullivan, Tioga, Union, Venango, Warren,
Washington, Wayne, Westmoreland, Wyoming, and York.
