PA School Mask Mandates Goes Into Effect

PHL17 News

Staring today, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf says that masks will be required in all Pennsylvania K-12 schools.

The order requires students, teachers and staff to wear masks when inside, regardless of vaccination status. The order will not apply to student athletes while they’re playing.  

Wolf and administration officials made the announcement in August. The state is taking action amid a statewide resurgence of COVID-19 that is filling hospital beds just as students return to class.
