“If we want to save lives, we must distance ourselves socially,” Gov. Tom Wolf said Monday when the order was announced.

The governor says people can still go to work if it’s a life-sustaining business or they have a waiver. The waiver process has seen thousands of requests, he says, tentatively adding that 2,000 waivers have been given.

“Allowable activities and travel” include getting medicine, visiting a health care professional or getting supplies to work from home. Under the stay-at-home order, residents are also allowed to go outside to walk, hike or run if they maintain social distancing. A full list can be found here.
