😷 Masks are now required indoors in Pennsylvania anytime people from different households are gathered — even if they’re inside a private home and keeping their distance. The new statewide guidance comes as Pennsylvania continues to shatter COVID-19 case records and officials look to “control the spread” ahead of the winter months. In addition to the expanded mask mandate, anyone who visits Pennsylvania from another state is now required to have a negative COVID-19 test within three days of arriving. Pennsylvanians who travel to other states must do the same when they return home. The order does not apply to people traveling back and forth for work or medical treatment. Find more details here.
