Pennsylvania governor orders statewide shut down as coronavirus spreads David Wenner, Penn Live · March 16, 2020 at 3:40 pm Gov. Tom Wolf on Monday told all “non-essential” businesses in Pennsylvania to close for the next two weeks. Without it, Pennsylvania’s health care system is at risk of being overwhelmed with people sick with the coronavirus, he said. The order extends to businesses including: gyms, bars, restaurants that aren’t exclusively offering take out or delivery, casinos and entertainment venues, golf courses, community centers, stores selling non-essential goods, shopping malls and even daycare centers when feasible. Still, Wolf said he had no plans to enforce the measures through steps such as calling out the National Guard. “What we ought to do is not think what should we do in terms of the law, but what do we owe to our fellow citizens,” Wolf said.
