Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has issued a 'stay-at-home' order for Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties in suburban Philadelphia, Allegheny County which includes Pittsburgh, and Monroe County in the Poconos. The order goes into effect at 8 p.m. Monday, March 23. Philadelphia issued its own 'stay-at-home' order which went into effect Monday morning at 8 a.m. Enforcement of Governor Wolf's order to shut down all non life-sustaining business also began Monday morning at 8 a.m. You can leave your home for certain 'allowable activities' such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, seeing the doctor, going to work at a life-sustaining business, etc. "Stay at home unless someone's life depends on going out, because ultimately someone's life does depend on you staying home," Wolf said.

Governor Wolf also announced that Pennsylvania schools will be closed for two more weeks through at least April 6.

The New Jersey Supreme Court has ordered that county jail inmates be released to stop the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. Chief Justice Stuart Rabner signed an order late Sunday that will allow county jail inmates to be released. The state public defender's office petitioned the state supreme court and argued that keeping inmates in jail posed a public heath threat, after two inmates in Hudson County tested positive for coronavirus COVID-19. Prisoners serving sentences of less than a year in county jails on municipal court convictions or as part of probationary sentences to be released this week. Prosecutors can file objections to the release of specific inmates and have a hearing in front of a judge. Those released will have to abide by the terms of their probation. New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said that those released will resume their sentences when the heath crisis passes. "I take no pleasure in temporarily releasing or suspending county jail sentences, but this is the most significant public health crisis we’ve faced in our state’s history, and it's forcing us to take actions that we wouldn't consider during normal times," Grewal said. Any prisoner that tests positive will not be released until a quarantine plan is approved. State prisoners who are serving sentences for serious crimes are remaining behind bars.

Philadelphia’s Broad Street Run has been postponed. The 10-mile race was originally scheduled to be run on May 3. It is not scheduled for October 4. Registration will carry over to the new date.
