Mask Requirement Update
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Lower Gwynedd Township has followed the guidelines established by CDC and the PA Department of Health. To maximize protection from the Delta Variant and prevent spreading it to others, CDC recommends wearing a mask indoors in public facilities if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
As of August 4, 2021, CDC reports that Montgomery County has moved into the “Substantial” level of community transmission. Therefore, CDC recommends wearing a mask indoors at public facilities in Montgomery County, even if you are fully vaccinated.
Based on this latest guidance, Lower Gwynedd Township will require all employees and visitors (whether vaccinated or not vaccinated) to wear face masks in all Township facilities, except those individuals who are otherwise exempt from the requirement under CDC guidelines.
