On Tuesday, state officials provided no updates on so-called mitigation efforts in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus across Pennsylvania.

Remember, on Monday, Gov. Tom Wolf urged what are known as non-essential businesses to close. That includes businesses like shopping malls (with some exceptions), fitness centers, bars, and restaurants. There are provisions for restaurants to remain open so long as they provide take-out or delivery service and do not serve food or alcohol to customers in their dining rooms.
