The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has dismissed a challenge to the governor’s statewide moratorium on foreclosures and evictions. Friday's decision leaves in place an order that shields renters from losing their homes for failing to pay rent during the pandemic. Housing advocates expressed relief while landlords said they are frustrated and disappointed. The moratorium is set to expire on Aug. 31. Meanwhile, the Health Department said 970 more people have tested positive for the virus, with 13 new deaths.
