A dozen more counties in Pennsylvania will enter the “green phase” next week in the slow transition out of the restrictions imposed by Gov. Wolf in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, but Monroe County is not among them.


The new counties going green on Friday, June 12, are: Adams, Beaver, Carbon, Columbia, Cumberland, Juniata, Mifflin, Northumberland, Union, Wayne, Wyoming and York.


As of Friday, June 5, every county in the state had moved out of the red phase, Wolf said in a news release.


Monroe County remains in the yellow phase, which means restrictions on work and social interaction ease while others, such as closures of schools, gyms, and other indoor recreation centers, hair and nail salons, as well as limitations around large gatherings, remain in place, Wolf said.
