Pennsylvania lifts mask mandate for fully-vaccinated people

Masking will still be required for unvaccinated individuals until 70 percent of Pennsylvanians age 18 and older are fully vaccinated

Pennsylvania’s mask order now reflects the recent announcement made by the CDC – those who are fully vaccinated no longer have to wear face masks. They can resume activities that they did prior to the pandemic without wearing a mask or physical distancing, except where required by law, rule and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance, as well as public transportation.

The masking requirement will remain in place for unvaccinated individuals until 70 percent of Pennsylvanians age 18 and older are fully vaccinated.

“Today’s guidance from the CDC affects only people who are fully vaccinated,” said Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam. “This is another incentive to get the vaccine that is now easily and conveniently available. Once 70 percent of Pennsylvanians over 18 are fully vaccinated, we can completely lift the masking order.”
