HARRISBURG (AP) – A new order from Pennsylvania’s health secretary sets cleaning standards for large buildings that are remaining open during the coronavirus shutdown. The guidance pertains to buildings of at least 50,000 square feet. The owners have to maintain usual cleaning but also ensure sufficient cleaning and security staff, and they have to focus efforts on areas that are more likely to be touched. The state saw at least 1,490 new cases confirmed over the previous day, with an overall total of more than 11,500. Fourteen deaths were reported, increasing Pennsylvania’s running total to 150. Gov. Tom Wolf says residents should wear face coverings in public to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. He urged Pennsylvanians to make their own cloth masks and put them on when they go to the grocery store, pharmacy, and other places where people congregate. Guidance on universal masking, including instructions on how to make your own mask is available by clicking on Gov. Wolf’s picture below.
