Gov. Tom Wolf reimposed restrictions Thursday on bars, restaurants, and larger indoor gatherings.
Those gatherings are now limited to 25 people, down from 250. Wolf says the restrictions are needed because of what he called an "unsettling climb" in infections.
Critics question the need for statewide restrictions when only a few areas of the state have been seeing rising case numbers.
