HARRISBURG Gov. Tom Wolf ordered K-12 school buildings to remain closed for an indefinite amount of time as part of the Commonwealth’s attempts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

“Our business in school closures will no longer have a set date to resume normal operations,” Wolf said. “Until now, I’ve been saying another two weeks, another two weeks; now, I’m going to leave the date indefinite.”

The report was made Monday afternoon and included the announcement that four additional counties Cumberland, Dauphin, Carbon and Schuylkill are listed under the governor’s stay-at-home order. That puts the number of counties from 22 to 26 out of 67 and includes Centre which was added to the list on Saturday.
