Gov. Tom Wolf yesterday reminded all Pennsylvania residents and businesses that masks are mandatory when visiting a business.
Multiple state government agencies sent a communication to Pennsylvania businesses this week outlining mask requirements:
• Everyone must wear a mask, unless they have a medical reason not to or
are under the age of 2. That includes workers and customers. Remember,
my mask protects you and your mask protects me.
• No mask, no shirt, no shoes, no service. If a worker or customer
attempts to enter your business without a mask on, ask them to leave and
return when they have a mask. A fabric mask is fine.
• Find PPE to protect your workers. Masks and other PPE can be hard to
find given the high demand. Check out the online directory of PPE
manufacturers and suppliers in Pennsylvania.
• Have good mask hygiene. Don’t touch the front of your mask. Make sure
it covers both your nose and mouth. Don’t lift it up when talking to
someone. If wearing a fabric mask, make sure you wash it and let it
fully dry between uses.
“Wearing masks in a business or when in a public space where social
distancing can’t be maintained is a required, vital practice to stopping
the spread of COVID-19,” Wolf said. “It’s also a sign of respect for
others because your mask is protecting them. Let’s continue to get
through this together.”
