Statewide shutdown for ‘non-essential businesses’ effective at midnight


Gov. Tom Wolf announced a statewide shut down. That means all non-essential stores, bars and restaurants will close effective at midnight. This is expected to last for 2 weeks. Gov. Wolf said there are no plans to shut down any pharmacies, grocery stores or medical facilities and he urged people to continue their normal shopping trips.


The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is ordering Meadows Casino and Racetrack among other casinos to shut down and cease entry to people by 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. This is in an effort to control the spread of coronavirus.

This also includes the Lady Luck Casino at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Presque Isle Racetrack and Casino in Erie.
