HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania is confirming another big increase in coronavirus cases as Philadelphia issues a “stay at home” order and lawmakers draft legislation to delay the state's April 28 primary election.

Pennsylvania health officials on Sunday reported more than 100 new cases in Pennsylvania, for a total of more than 470. Two coronavirus deaths have been reported so far in the state. Philadelphia's stay at home order will take effect 8 a.m. Monday.

Meanwhile, the state House's State Government Committee chairman says forthcoming legislation would delay Pennsylvania's primary to June 2. Everett said he hopes to get the legislation through the Republican-controlled chamber and to the Senate this coming week.
