    • When asked about when and how Pennsylvania will re-open after coronavirus, Secretary Levine stated that they’re working on plans to do so in a progressive, iterative fashion – but now is not the time as we need to protect the public health and save lives. We would need to see cases going down and much less community spread before considering to re-open.
