Gov. Wolf issues telework mandate

Welp, here we go again. Governor Wolf issued another executive order addressing COVID-19 mitigation. One notable component:


Unless impossible, all businesses must conduct their operations remotely, through individual teleworking of their employees in the jurisdiction or jurisdictions in which they do businesses. Where telework is impossible, employees may conduct in-person business operations, provided that the business fully complies with this Order, and all existing and future applicable guidance issued by the Wolf Administration, the Department of Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The order does not provide any real detail. But, taken literally, impossible is a pretty high bar. Effective as of November 27, 2020, with no end date.
