Pennsylvania to Lift Mask Mandate by June 28
Acting Health Secretary Alison Beam announced Thursday that Pennsylvania will lift its coronavirus mask mandate by June 28th. However, if at least 70% of the state’s adults get fully vaccinated, then the end of the mandate could come earlier.
Currently more than 70% of adults have received at least one dose and nearly 53% are fully vaccinated .
Pennsylvania will continue to follow CDC guidance on masking.
Beam said “Businesses, municipalities and school districts my continue requiring to wear a mask. Likewise, some folks may make the personal choice to continue wearing a mask. We ask that Pennsylvanians continue to be kind and respectful to each other as we continue to fight COVID-19 in our communities.”
