PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Pennsylvania’s unemployment website was overwhelmed Sunday as the coronavirus pandemic put a number of people across the state out of work. Earlier this month, Gov. Tom Wolf ordered non-life-sustaining businesses to close their physical locations as the number of coronavirus cases in the state continued to climb.
When people went to file a biweekly claim on the site, they received a message reading; “We are currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again later.”
Eyewitness News received a number of calls due to the issue Sunday morning.
As of 10 a.m. Sunday, the site was back up and running.
