The time-limited mitigation orders put in place on Dec. 12 have helped to begin flattening the curve of new cases following the post-Thanksgiving surge in Pennsylvania. As a result, today Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine announced that the time-limited orders as written will expire at 8 a.m., Jan. 4 as planned."Our mitigation efforts over the past several weeks are working, and I thank everyone who abided by the restrictions put in place to protect us," Gov. Wolf said. "Every time we make a small decision to avoid risk - or take steps to make our actions a little bit less risky - we are helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. At this time, my intention is to allow the time-limited mitigation orders that went into effect on December 12 to expire as planned on January 4.With the expiration of the time-limited orders, mitigation efforts will revert to mitigation orders in place on Dec. 11.
