Health Department Announces Targeted Efforts to Control Covid Spread

As the cases of COVID-19 continue to explode in Pennsylvania, Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine on Tuesday announced “targeted efforts” to control the spread across the state.

The health department will be implementing several changes including requiring masks to be worn in-doors with limited exceptions, and requiring travelers to be tested within 72 hours or quarantining for 14 days before coming to Pennsylvania.

This order, which doesn’t apply to people who commute to and from another state for work, goes into effect on Friday, November 20th.

Levine said during Tuesday’s news conference that the state has no plans to go back to the red, yellow, green phase system.
