Temporary Business Closing Order to Lift Jan. 4

Published on

December 30, 2020

Pennsylvania has lived up to its promise of “temporary” business closings, as Gov. Tom Wolf said the closings order will expire as planned January 4.

But businesses need to be aware that this isn’t a full reopening – it’s just a removal of the temporary order that went into effect December 12 and directed things such as closing indoor dining at restaurants and bars, pausing high school sports and closing fitness centers and gyms.

According to the state, those businesses that now will be allowed to reopen at 8 a.m. Monday must still adhere to the restrictions they operated under on December 11.

You can find those restrictions for bars and restaurants here, and the state has provided a broad list of the restrictions it said will be in place again Monday.

If you have any questions about the restrictions, contact me or anyone in the Barley Snyder Business Practice Group.
