Allegheny and Westmoreland counties are among the counties Gov. Tom Wolf announced can begin the first phase of a gradual reopening and easing of coronavirus-related restrictions next week.
A majority of the Southwest and South-Central regions will get the go-ahead to proceed to the yellow phase of the tiered reopening plan on May 15. That includes Allegheny, Armstrong, Bedford, Blair, Butler, Cambria, Fayette, Fulton, Greene, Indiana, Somerset, Washington and Westmoreland counties, the governor said.
The governor made the announcement today at a 2 p.m. virtual news conference.

Meanwhile, health care workers are being furloughed because their routine business has dried up.
Dr. Tranny stepped on the dick he/she doesn’t have by getting him/herself in between UPMC and their money.
You’d be safer dancing on the white lines of I-79.
Well, isn’t that awfully magnanimous of him. Azzhole. At least Butler county is getting some relief - my sister and her family live there, and they’re getting cabin fever.
Gov. Wolf to frustrated Pennsylvanians: what are you gonna do about it?
At this point, given the ridiculous set of hoops the Wolf/Levine administration is making counties jump through to get to the “yellow” phase, which is really just red without as much blame on the governor for businesses failing, it’s in the public interest to not get anyone in your county tested so the overall case counts stay low. That’s the perverted logic we’re facing.
Noticed that the PA health commissioner looks like the nutty Dr Okun from independence Day?
Hes Data from Star Trek...
There are small city towns with larger populations.
Williamsport,Pa Which some might consider a city ..but not really.. has.
Place Population 2018
Clinton County 39,074
Tioga County 41,226
McKean County 41,806
Allegany County 47,025
That’s Allegany County, New York, which abuts PA and is fairly rural.
Allegheny County, PA (spelled differently) is where Pittsburgh is located. Pop. 1.2 million.
Welcome to your state health commissioner
Health commissioner here is a “she” who used to be a “he”. Gov. Wolf appointed he/she one day after taking office as a big “F.U.” to conservative voters in this state.
I would not insult Brent Spiner, a fine actor, with that comparison.
just call me Rachel
mighty white of him, and a magnanimous leader...NOT!....
I wish someone could publicly tell these tin horn fascists to take their phases and shove them up their asses.
I have on social media an elsewhere. But I’m a very minor elected official who works for the county government only two days per year; the private sector for the rest of the year.
The point being many of the counties in that region are low population.
Even Lycoming Co. where Williamsport resides is only 113,299 (2019).
The whole county is still 9 times less densely populated than P-burgh.
Basically true. Wags here were referring to Phase Yellow as Phase Camo cause that’s basically what they’re wearing in those counties.
Occam’s Razor: If he p*sses off the Yinzers too much they’re likely to break heavily for Trump in November.
Big deal! He is keeping Luzerne county in Red until June 4. Trump needs to step in.
Yeah, my brother-in-law works in IT and worked from home part of the time. He went out on short-term for surgery, and when he got cleared to come back, the bug had hit and his company laid off a bunch of people, him included, so he filed for unemployment. They had no work for him because of the trickle down effect - clients were closing up. Thank God my sister draws a healthy salary as well and can work 100% remotely.
