HARRISBURG, Pa (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Governor Tom Wolf is reminding Pennsylvanians that masks are mandatory when visiting businesses in the state.
“The importance of mask-wearing to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect people and businesses cannot be overstated,” Gov. Wolf said. “Masks are required in businesses, for the entire time someone is visiting a business. It’s that simple and that important to continue to safely reopen the state and keep our case counts on the decline.”
Allgheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald told KDKA Radio's Marty Griffin that if hospitlizations and deaths increase along with the case counts, there could be another shutdown in the future.
“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,” Gov. 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.”
