Even though a large crowd of protested gathers at the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg, the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf extended the state at home order.

Previously, the stay at home order was to expire on April 30th but has now been extended to May 8th. However, Wolf said that just because the stay at home order would be up doesn’t mean the state would be opening up, only construction projects will be able to continue.

To be fair, the Pennsylvania Governor has been one of the very few Democrat governors to keep churches an essential service while closing down liquor stores.

Wolf said, “You must only travel, if needed, for businesses that are open. We’ve implemented guidance to protect employees and customers, all that stays in place, but we also need to all have hope that we’re going to be able to soon resume many of the activities that have come to a halt. Even if, when we resume those activities they’re in a different form, we need to have the hope that Pennsylvania’s economy will soon bounce back and be strong again. We need to have hope that we’ll soon be able to be with the loved ones we haven’t seen personally in six weeks.”

Most regions in Pennsylvania have been under the stay of home order for six weeks now, the extension will make it a total of eight weeks.

A Facebook page created by small businesses named “Reopen Pennsylvania reads, “We are Pennsylvanian residents and business owners that stand for our rights and freedoms. We demand our officials re-open PA on May 1, 2020.”

Our small businesses, the very backbone of our communities, are being choked out by forced closure, moved goal posts, and empty promises. The shut down is a extraordinary overreach of power by our government, is unnecessary, and is not sustainable

The Governor of Michigan has also treated to extend her state’s stay of home order because of unruly protesters.
