- The Context
- State of the State
Pennsylvania is an outlier in its decision to close liquor stores, which have remained open as “essential businesses” in all of the states that ring our borders: New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, West Virginia and Delaware.
Schools are closed across Pennsylvania because of the coronavirus, but many schools are still supplying meals to students who rely on their district for food.
Pennsylvania has 25 state prisons housing roughly 45,000 people, all of whom have been under quarantine since late Sunday, with their movements restricted and meals served inside cells.
