This is an update to our July 17, 2020 article(1) addressing the July
15, 2020 orders issued by Governor Wolf(2) and the Pennsylvania
Department of Health(3) directing "mitigation measures" in response to
a reported rise in COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania.

As explained in that prior article, both orders included the following
mandate requiring telework: "Unless not possible, all business are
required to conduct their operations in whole or in part remotely
through individual teleworking of their employees[.]"
