Gov. Wolf Calls for Legislative Action to Support Small Businesses Impacted by COVID-19

As small businesses continue to feel an economic impact of the COVID-19 public health crisis, Governor Tom Wolf called on the General Assembly to provide additional funding to support these businesses. The governor was joined by the York County Economic Alliance, local elected officials and business advocates.

"The COVID-19 pandemic is a public health crisis, but it is also an economic crisis. In order to help Pennsylvania's economy recover from the effects of COVID-19, it is vital that we continue to support businesses in Pennsylvania, especially as so many have taken on additional work and costs to keep their employees and customers safe since reopening," Gov. Wolf said. "Small businesses have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 mitigation efforts and further support is needed to strengthen the economy, so I am calling on the General Assembly to approve additional funds to support our small businesses."
