Update September 3, 2021
Effective Tuesday, September 7, the Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Health Order requires face coverings to be worn in all school entities until further notice. This order was intended to ensure that schools can continue to offer in-person instruction and keep students and staff healthy in the midst of an aggressive variant of COVID-19.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health will continue to evaluate community transmission rates, vaccination data, and other indicators, and will use this information to inform decisions about the Order’s statewide application going ahead.
The Department of Health will provide us with an update on the Order by October 1, 2021.
To clarify components of the Order, we have added to and adjusted some of the Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
we originally distributed on Tuesday. Please reference these FAQs to ensure your school entity is fully implementing the Order, including with respect to targeted exceptions to the Order.
