FAQs for Green Phase of Reopening

For news updates and local community and business related resources, please click here.

On May 29, Centre County will move to the Green Phase. Businesses are permitted to reopen, but must follow PA Department of Health and CDC health guidelines. That information can be found here. Customers must wear masks upon entering a store and adhere to social distancing guidelines. If you are feeling sick, please do not patronize stores.

As Central PA moves in to the Green Phase, many businesses will reopen with altered hours or continue to make accommodations for online shopping or pick up services.


Business owners: DBI has signs for you!

You can print the signs yourself or DBI is offering the printing of one of each sign on us through M&M Copy Service. They will open on Monday, May 11 and you can call or email to order and pickup your signs. Thanks for the DBI Marketing Team and to Mark & Peggy at M&M Copy!
