HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA/AP) - Governor Tom Wolf is placing all counties in Pennsylvania under a Stay-At-Home order amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
All at once, the governor added 34 counties to his stay-home edict, meaning that residents of all 67 of Pennsylvania's counties must now stay home as much as possible to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Wolf called it “the most prudent option.”
The order comes on the day that PA has seen the highest one-day surge in coronavirus cases.
"Regardless of where you live in Pennsylvania, you should not leave your home unless obsoletely necessary," said Wolf
The PA Department of Health announced 962 cases on Wednesday for a total of 5,805 in 60 counties.
11 additional people have died bringing the total to 74.
The Stay-at-Home order is currently scheduled to last until April 30 but could be extended if the governor orders it.
