Local News

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — As of 12:01 on Friday, June 5, 2020, 16 more counties moved into the green phase of Gov. Wolf’s reopening plan including four more in our Central PA region.

Starting Friday, June 5, Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, and Somerset counties will be in the green phase, leaving just Huntingdon County in the yellow phase in our WTAJ 10-county viewing area.

In total, on June 5, there will be 34 counties in the green phase and 33 in the yellow phase.

While this green phase will facilitate a return to a “new normal,” it will be equally important to continue to monitor public health indicators and adjust orders and restrictions as necessary to ensure the spread of disease remains at a minimum.
