HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf says regions of Pennsylvania that have a relatively low number of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus might be able to reopen “in a fairly robust” way on May 8.
Wolf shed more light on his recovery roadmap even as the state’s death toll rose sharply. He said Tuesday he intends to loosen restrictions on people and businesses in much the same way they were imposed: Gradually, and county by county.
More than 34,000 people statewide have tested positive for the virus. The statewide death toll has risen by hundreds in recent days because the state recently changed the way it counts deaths.
