HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania is working on guidelines to allow sporting events, exhibitions and leagues, both professional and amateur, to get back to some semblance of normalcy after practically everything shut down to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Gov. Tom Wolf told reporters Wednesday that he has been in touch with major professional organizations including NASCAR, the NFL, NHL, Major League Baseball and others to figure out how they can resume. He said he expects that his administration will, in the coming days, produce guidelines for the various venues and activities to resume. He says the success of the events and leagues will rest on whether people feel safe to attend and participate.
