Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is ordering all non-life-sustaining businesses in the commonwealth to close their physical locations to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

Special exemptions are being granted to businesses that are supplying or servicing health care providers.  Some of those businesses include building supply stores, medical offices but not elective procedures, grocery stores and pharmacies.
