PENNSYLVANIA — The deadline for Pennsylvania businesses to apply for an extension to stay open amid the coronavirus outbreak is coming up on Friday, April 3, state officials said.
While all “non life-sustaining” businesses were ordered to shut down, the state has allowed businesses that do not fall under that category to apply for a special exemption to remain open. It’s part of an effort to recognize a nuanced situation and keep the economy moving.
The application can be accessed by business owners online here. It will close at 5 p.m. Friday.
