PA’s Mask Mandate Ends on June 28, 2021

After more than a year in effect, Pennsylvania’s mask order officially expired on Monday, June 28. The Wolf administration had previously set this date as the expiration – or when 70 percent of the state’s adults were fully vaccinated, whichever comes first. While Pennsylvania has not yet met the 70 percent benchmark, it is expected to exceed its target of vaccinating 70 percent of the adult population soon – according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, 75 percent of adults have had at least one COVID-19 dose and nearly 60 percent of those 18 and older are now fully vaccinated.
