HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Some counties in Pennsylvania could see practically all of the state's pandemic restrictions on business activity and gatherings lifted in the coming days, other than social-distancing and health-monitoring guidelines that are in place to help stop the spread of the coronarivus. Gov. Tom Wolf said Thursday that some counties could get to move to the least-restrictive "green" phase of his three-color traffic-signal reopening plan stages. That could become official Friday. He also says more counties could move from the red phase to less-restrictive yellow phase. It is not clear, exactly, what restrictions, if any, will remain in place in the green phase.
