Mask Wearing Now Mandatory Per Governor’s Order

Governor Wolf yesterday announced that masks must be worn whenever anyone leaves home.

"This mask wearing order is essential to stopping the recent increase in COVID-19 cases we have seen in Pennsylvania," Gov. Wolf said. "Those hot spots can be traced to situations where Pennsylvanians were not wearing masks or practicing social distancing - two practices that must be adhered to if we want to maintain the freedoms we have in place under our reopening."
