Governor Tom Wolf announced today that he will lift mitigation orders beginning on Memorial Day, Monday May 31st.

The governor made the decision in coordination with the COVID-19 vaccine joint task force.

However, the current order requiring Pennsylvanians to wear a mask will not be lifted until 70% of Pennsylvanians age 18 and older are fully vaccinated.

Face coverings are required to be worn indoors and outdoors if you are away from your home.

Requirements such as testing and reporting new cases will remain in place for hospitals and long-term care facilities.
