Those that may continue operations include a wide range of businesses, from crop and animal production, to oil and gas extraction, food manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, auto parts accessories and tire stores, gas stations, grocery stores and air and truck transportation. The list also says beer, wine and liquor stores may continue operations.

Those that must close include construction companies, auto dealers, law firms and others deemed non-life-sustaining.

Sean Boyle, CEO of Boyle Construction of South Whitehall Township, said his company is closing and stopping work as of today, however, the company has one virus-related health care project that will continue.

Enforcement actions against businesses that do not close physical locations will begin at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 21, the governor said.
