Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine signed amended green phase orders for the 12 counties moving to green on June 12.
The phase reopening update includes the following counties: Adams, Beaver, Carbon, Columbia, Cumberland, Juniata, Mifflin, Northumberland, Union, Wayne, Wyoming and York.
With these orders effective there will be 46 counties in green and 21 counties in yellow.
The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay-at-home and business closure orders to allow the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.

The official Pennsylvania Government website stated that “while this phase facilitates a return to a ‘new normal,’ it is equally important to continue to monitor public health indicators and adjust orders and restrictions as necessary to ensure the spread of disease remains at a minimum.”
The new designation, which will take effect in one week, allows gyms, barbers and theaters to reopen. Bars and restaurants may allow indoor dining, at half their normal capacity.
Gatherings of up to 250 people are permitted in green zones.
