WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County Commissioners issued the following statement regarding Chester County “moving to yellow” on June 5th in Governor Wolf’s phased reopening of Pennsylvania following the COVID-19 lockdown:
“We are pleased that the Governor has responded to our appeal to relax restrictions in Chester County, and on June 5th, Chester County can begin to move forward in a safe and cautious way.
“Our ‘Restore Chester County’ program is rolling out next week to begin preparing businesses and organizations to re-open, and informing residents of all safety measures that employers are using to welcome employees and customers back without fear.
“Cautious is the watchword for our yellow phase. Thank you all for your efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 during our red phase. We know the inevitable question is when will we get to ‘green’?
“It is our goal that Chester County will move to the green phase no later than the end of June. But we must all continue to make every effort to contain the coronavirus.
“Wear masks, continue social distancing, work from home if you can, and continue all hygiene recommendations. Heed the yellow phase restrictions so that Chester County is ready to ‘go green’ safely by the end of June.”
