In an effort to develop as comprehensive a list as possible, the administration used the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) coding structure from the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics to identify whether sector businesses were life-sustaining but with the understanding that many businesses could still be operational through telework, according to Smith. 

 

Smith verified to MediaNews Group that since Maryland dealerships remain open for business, Pennsylvanians can travel there to buy cars instead of purchasing inventory from Pennsylvania-based dealerships.

 

“Correct, except for the counties currently under a stay-at-home order, which includes Chester County,” he said.

 

And while car dealerships in Pennsylvania and New Jersey are presently unable to sell cars at their dealerships or online, the demand that remains in play this quarter is turning to not only Maryland dealerships but also to Carvana, a national automobile online dealer based in Arizona.

 

“Carvana is licensed in Pennsylvania and should be in no different position than local dealerships,” Smith said. “In-person title transfer services are not permitted.”

 

In other news, Wolf deemed copy centers a “non-essential” business, whereas the governor of New Jersey exempted the industry as an “essential” service for New Jerseyans.
