As Lancaster County prepares to reopen, coronavirus case count remains twice the level Pennsylvania says is safe

With 30 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, Lancaster County edged no closer to meeting a key state metric that local officials have decided to disregard as they prepare to partially reopen the local economy on Friday.

Lancaster remained at more than twice Gov. Tom Wolf's requirement for no more than 50 new coronavirus cases per 100,000 population over a two-week period. Reopening with a higher rate of new cases is unsafe, the governor has said.
