Coronavirus (COVID-19) Masking Updates

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

All mitigation orders were lifted on May 31, 2021 relating to gatherings (weddings, funerals, proms, graduation ceremonies, and other school activities), restaurants, and other businesses.

The Updated Order of the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health Requiring Universal Face Coverings was lifted on June 28, 2021. There is no longer a statewide requirement to wear masks. Pennsylvanians should follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for wearing a mask where required by law, rule, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance and policies. In addition, all individuals should still follow guidance at workplaces, local businesses, long-term and residential care facilities, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters.
