Mayor Jim Kenney tweeted “some may think that the pandemic is no longer a big deal, but passing this 25,000 mark is a sobering reminder that COVID-19 remains a serious threat. As we move to the green phase next month, please continue to #MaskUpPHL, social distance and wash your hands.”

Southeastern Pennsylvania is expected to enter the green reopening phase Friday, but Philadelphia officials have delayed the city’s transition until July 3.
