HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Hospitals, nursing homes and child care centers are asking Pennsylvania state government for more money to avoid closures amid a surge of coronavirus-related demands.

Also, Pennsylvania's state corrections officers' union wants the prison system to stop all transfers of inmates as a preventative measure against the new coronavirus spreading between institutions.

Pennsylvania is reporting more than 200 new coronavirus cases and another death Tuesday. More businesses are challenging Gov. Tom Wolf's order closing “non-life-sustaining" businesses.
