Adult Vaccinations on Track; Mask Order to be Lifted by June 28

The mask order in Pennsylvania will be lifted by June 28. According to Department of Health Acting Secretary Alison Beam, we hit a milestone Wednesday with 70 percent of adults receiving at least the first dose of COVID 19 vaccine. As long as those still needing the second dose follow through we will be on track to meet the requirement.

Once the statewide masking order is lifted, Pennsylvania will continue to follow the CDC guidance for wearing a mask where required by law, rule, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. The CDC requires individuals to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs, such as airports and stations. In addition, all individuals should still follow guidance at workplaces, local businesses, long-term care facilities, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters.
