Extending Declaration of a State of Emergency Due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Yesterday, May 26, the Governor amended Executive Order 51. This is the Order that declared a state of emergency in the Commonwealth due the COVID-19 pandemic. The original Executive Order 51 was set to expire on June 10. The amended language removes this date and makes the state of emergency declared in Executive Order 51 permanent until a future Executive Order is issued ending the state of emergency. A link to the amended Executive Order 51 is below.
