Pennsylvania: Telework now just "strongly encouraged"

 Governor Wolf issued a new executive order, effective April 4 (i.e. now). The Order leads off with big news on the telework mandate that has been in effect for months:

All businesses are strongly encouraged to conduct their operations in whole or in part remotely through individual teleworking of their employees in the jurisdiction or jurisdictions in which they do business.

The prior orders required employers to conduct business remotely through employee telework "[u]nless impossible." So, we've gone from mandatory telework if possible, to telework is "strongly encouraged."
