Lancaster County moving to yellow phase without Governor’s approval


LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — Lancaster County Commissioners are moving ahead with their plan to move into the yellow phase without the governor’s approval.

The Republican Commissioners are allowing businesses to reopen as long as CDC guidelines are followed. But they do warn those who choose to open are doing so at their own risk.

“Every business is going to have to assess what that means for themselves and they’re going to have do their due diligence of what they choose to do,” Commissioner Josh Parsons said.

Commissioners said they will not sign a resolution to reinforce the move into the yellow phase and will not force any businesses to open.

It’s not known which businesses will choose to reopen.

Similarly, Lebanon County Commissioners will vote May 15, on whether to move to the yellow phase
despite the governor’s orders.
