Covid 19

Thursday evening March 19, 2020, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf issued a shutdown order to all “non-life sustaining” businesses. The order mandated that the physical locations of these businesses had to close by 8 PM that evening to slow the spread of COVID-19.

As of this this afternoon, 3/22, we have received an important clarification from the Commonwealth.

Regarding maintenance, we’ve been informed that the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has confirmed that landscaping has been included under “essential services” and that superintendents may continue maintaining the grounds at this time.

Please note that these clarifications are from the DCED and are subject to change as the situation evolves. If you have specific questions, please contact the DCED directly at or by calling 1-877-PA-Health and select option #1.
