Mask-Wearing is Required and Critical to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

07/06/2020

Harrisburg, PA - Governor Tom Wolf today reminded Pennsylvanians that mask-wearing is required and critical to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“The order to make mask-wearing mandatory when leaving home was put in place to protect all Pennsylvanians from the spread of COVID-19,” Gov. Wolf said. “This simple practice, combined with social distancing, handwashing, and staying home if sick, is paramount to stopping this virus from infecting more people. I again urge Pennsylvanians to mask up for the protection of everyone.”

Sec. of Health Dr. Rachel Levine signed an order mandating mask-wearing on Wednesday. It remains in effect. For Frequently Asked Questions about the mask-wearing order, visit the Department of Health's website.
