Snyder: Extremely disappointed in decision by Wolf administration to keep Greene, Fayette, Washington counties in yellow designation



CARMICHAELS, May 22 – Greene, Fayette and Washington counties are among those state Rep. Pam Snyder said should have been included in today’s reopening announcement.


Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, said she will continue to push to move the counties to the green reopening designation.


“Our communities have done their part and have helped flatten the curve and are practicing safe behaviors, and that includes my district offices,” Snyder said. “While the governor said the state has closely monitored yellow counties for outbreaks, we have had zero outbreaks. This doesn’t make sense. Once again, my residents deserve answers as to why we weren’t included in the counties that have moved to the green designation. Rest assured, I will continue to urge the governor to reconsider today’s decision in southwestern Pennsylvania and move our counties to green.”


Earlier this month, Greene, Fayette and Washington counties were among those whose restrictions were lifted from “red” to “yellow” status.
