Gov. Tom Wolf is elaborating on the reopening process for green phase counties in Pennsylvania, as well as providing guidance on outdoor dining in yellow counties, dining in green counties and professional sports in yellow counties.
Eighteen counties will move into the green phase on Friday.
The following guidance applies:
Personal care services, including hair salons and barbershops must operate by appointment only; appointments or reservations are also strongly encouraged for gyms or spas.
Any gathering for a planned or spontaneous event of greater than 250 individuals is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, a concert, festival, fair, conference, sporting event, movie showing or theater performance.
Churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and other places of congregate worship are specifically excluded from the limitations established by the order. These institutions are strongly encouraged to enforce social distancing and other mitigation measures such as masking at their gatherings.
Visitation to prisons and hospitals may resume subject to the discretion of the facility. Visitors who interact with residents and patients must be diligent regarding hygiene. Given the critical importance of limiting COVID-19 exposure in nursing homes, nursing home visitation restrictions will initially remain in place.
Yellow phase outdoor dining
Beginning June 5, restaurants in yellow phase counties can add dine-in service in outdoor seating areas. The businesses must adhere to requirements that include maximum occupancy limits.
Self-service food or drink options and reusable menus are not permitted. Condiments should not be on tables but customers can request them from employees. Green phase dining
Retail foodservice businesses in green phase counties can provide take-out and delivery sales, as well as dine-in service in both indoor and outdoor seating areas. They must adhere to requirements that include maximum occupancy limits.
Professional sports team can practice or play in the yellow and green phases of reopening without spectators if the team has developed a safety plan. The plan must be approved by the Department of Health.

Interesting turn of phrase.
Wolf’s title should be stricken from all FR headlines.
I wish he was hanging from a lamp post in the town square.
If he was walking through Wilkes-Barre, that lamp post just might fall on our “slope shouldered mediocrity”.
Pittsburgh is apparently on the shortlist of potential hub cities for the NHL restart tournament. Likely that’s what spurred this.
Yep, that's my thought as well. Of course, stuck here in "forever red" Bucks County, I've had enough of these silly "rules" that seem to change day by day .... grrrr!
First Amendment? Piss on it. I’m the governor and I make the laws now.
When the tranny sees the shadow of his penis, you know there will be six more weeks of quarantine.
Just open up. Stop kowtowing to totalitarians.
200 good jobs gone.
Wasn’t that the goal? “Flatten the economy”
LOL We went yellow today!!!! Woopie! At least I can shop at Boscov’s.
