Stop the Spread

We have the power to protect ourselves, our families, businesses, neighbors, and communities from COVID-19 through our individual actions and choices.

COVID-19 Health and Safety Measures

On June 28, Pennsylvania’s universal masking order was lifted. Pennsylvanians are urged to follow CDC guidance and wear a mask where required by law, rule, and regulations. This includes the following guidance:

  • Regardless of vaccination status, the CDC requires masks on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States.
  • Continue following guidance at workplaces, local businesses, long-term care facilities, hospitals and other healthcare facilities, prisons, and shelters.

If you are not vaccinated – or are partially vaccinated – you are encouraged to continue wearing a mask in public.

If you get COVID-19, it is important that you follow existing public health measures. Isolation and quarantine are necessary to prevent the spread of infection.

  • Stay home unless you’re seeking medical care or COVID-19 testing.
  • Please quarantine if you’re identified as a close contact of a person with COVID-19. If you become infected, this will help keep you from spreading the virus to others.


Vaccines are safe and effective – and the best way to protect yourself and others around you. To learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and where you can get yours, visit our COVID-19 Vaccines page and check out our Vaccine FAQs.

Holidays and Gatherings

The more Pennsylvanians get vaccinated, the safer we are when we gather in groups and during the holidays. If you are hosting or attending a group event, please be sure to follow the latest CDC guidance for celebrating holidays and gatherings safely.
