Gov. Tom Wolf granted an extension on license to carry firearms permits, state police said on Wednesday.

Permits that expired  March 19 or later have been extended to May 30.

The extension is necessary because of the closure of some county courthouses and sheriff's offices, as well as other protective measures being taken to limit the spread of COVID-19.
