GOVERNOR RENEWS OPIOID DISASTER DECLARATION

Governor Tom Wolf is renewing the state’s Opioid Disaster Declaration for the 15th time. Wolf says as we see a spike in overdoses throughout the commonwealth, there has never been a more important time to concentrate efforts in helping individuals with substance use disorder. He added that this ongoing public health crisis has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The declaration will only last for 21 days unless the General Assembly votes to extend ┬áit.
