The below information is current as of the publication date listed. Because COVID-19 response measures on all fronts are continually evolving, clients should stay alert to new developments and consult with counsel on any critical questions.

On December 30, 2020, Gov. Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine announced that the tougher COVID-19 mitigation measures imposed earlier this month – including a 10-person limit on indoor gatherings and a 50-person limit on outdoor gatherings – will expire at 8:00 a.m. on January 4, 2021.

After these temporary measures are lifted, businesses must continue to follow the governor’s November 23, 2020 order, which we summarized here. That order includes gathering limits based on a percentage of maximum occupancy and measures addressing telework, cleaning, contact tracing, employee quarantine, and other employee and customer safety protocols.

Saxton & Stump attorney Jason Benion is available to assist death care businesses and professionals with these and other issues regarding operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
