Moving to the Green Phase: Learn about the Restrictions that Remain in Place

On June 12th, Governor Tom Wolf announced that eight more counties, including Luzerne County, will move to the green phase of reopening under the Governor’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania on June 19th. Although certain restrictions aimed at combating COVID-19 are eased for a county that enters the green phase, there are still a number of restrictions that must still be adhered to by businesses and/or citizens in the county during the green phase, including certain work setting restrictions and social restrictions. Accordingly, as businesses in Luzerne County plan for the green phase, they must closely review the applicable restrictions under the Governor’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania and tailor their practices to comply with those requirements.

Rosenn, Jenkins & Greenwald is prepared to assist businesses as they address these novel and important issues. If you are interested in learning more about these services, please contact Paul Rushton, the Chair of RJG’s Business & Finance Department (prushton@rjglaw.com), or Christyan Telech (ctelech@rjglaw.com) of our Business & Finance Department.
