Going from Yellow to Green – What does it mean?

As the nation continues to navigate COVID-19, states are starting to open back up. Today in Pennsylvania, more counties are moving in to the ‘Green Phase’. The counties in the Green Phase have mitigated the risk for the 14 days required and are allowed to ‘open’ with strongly suggested guidelines from the Governor, Dr. Levine and the CDC.

Southwestern Pennsylvania counties are among those moving from yellow to green today, (6/5/2020). This allows businesses to open under specific guidelines, those counties include, Allegheny, Armstrong, Bedford, Blair, Butler, Cambria, Clinton, Fayette, Fulton, Greene, Indiana, Lycoming, Mercer, Somerset, Washington, and Westmoreland.

As counties ‘go Green’ here are some of the restrictions still in place or strongly encouraged:

  • Continued telework where possible;
  • Businesses with in-person operations must follow additional safety requirements;
  • Businesses are allowed more people per square foot (75% capacity); and
  • Childcare facilities may open, and in-school education is still subject to the CDC guidelines.

This time of year brings about graduation, special event parties, and of course weddings. When in the green phase, large gatherings over 250 are still prohibited.

Restaurants, bars, casinos, spas, hair salons etc. can now open but at 50% capacity.

As always, please take the safety suggestions seriously, stay safe, healthy and remember to wash your hands and sanitize as often as necessary.
