March 19, 2020



The Pennsylvania State Police released data on actions taken against non-life-sustaining businesses who failed to comply with Gov. Tom Wolf’s order closing their physical locations. Enforcement began on Monday, March 23, 2020.

“As expected, we found the overwhelming majority of people and businesses across the commonwealth are voluntarily complying with the order and doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Colonel Robert Evanchick, commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police. “This process is two phased beginning with warnings to gain voluntary compliance, followed by enforcement as necessary.”

There were two warnings issued within Troop G’s area, which includes Morrisons Cove.

The governor has directed the following state agencies and local officials to enforce the closure orders to the full extent of the law: Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, Department of Health, Department of Agriculture, Pennsylvania State Police, Municipal Police and local officials, using their resources to enforce closure orders within their jurisdictions.

The Wolf administration has provided all local law enforcement with enforcement guidance that mirrors PSP’s.

The current list of businesses classified as life-sustaining, resources for affected businesses, and information businesses to request a waiver/exemption are available from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).

To report a noncompliant business, contact your local law enforcement agency’s non-emergency number. Please do not call 911 to file reports.
