The Pennsylvania senate has approved a bill that would allow for some business in PA to reopen as long as they follow recommended CDC guidelines for social distancing.

The vote was 29-21 to send the bill to the governor.  The bill would require Gov. Wolf to develop a plan, following federal guidelines, allowing certain employers to reopen after being closed during the current coronavirus pandemic.  This would allow workers to get back on the job over the next three weeks.

During Wednesday’s update, Gov. Wolf had this to say.

“the course we’re on right now is the least bad choice we have to make and with all the painful decisions that go with it. It’s the right course.”

He has not said he would veto the bill, as of now, however neither the house or the senate had a two thirds vote, which would be needed, to overturn a veto.

End of day Tuesday, Pennsylvania’s cases of the coronavirus cases were at 26,490, with 647 deaths.
