HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf will announce Friday that more counties will be allowed to enter the "green" phase of his pandemic reopening plan, the least-restrictive phase of his stoplight-colored three-phase plan. Those counties are in addition to the 16 that he already announced will enter that phase Friday. In addition, nearly 6 million people in Philadelphia and nine other counties in hard-hit southeastern Pennsylvania are scheduled Friday to become the last in the state to shed the tightest restrictions under Wolf's red phase. The rate of new cases and the percentage of those testing positive continues to decline in Pennsylvania. We will find out Friday if any Northeast Pennsylvania counties are incuded in the list of counties that move to green.
