He recommends staying at home for 14 days after you get back

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) – With the holiday weekend upon us, the Wolf administration is reminding Pennsylvania residents to avoid large gatherings, wear masks around other people and continue to be careful when traveling out-of-state to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The green phase is not a green light to stop exercising caution in large gatherings. Although it is the holiday weekend, Pennsylvanians should refrain from attending large gatherings and if you do go out and interact with others, wear a mask.
