New School Mask Mandate

The Wolf administration is now requiring masks to be worn inside k-12 school buildings early learning programs and child care facilities.

This order takes effect at midnight on Tuesday, September 7th.

The governor says that he was hopeful that school districts would mandate masks and when they didn’t that the legislature would act.

He also justified the rising case counts as the reason to act.

Several local lawmakers reacting to the order, including Senate President Pro Temp Jake Corman, who says: quote

“Our position throughout the pandemic has been consistent we believe in local control.

School districts are best suited to make the decisions regarding the health and safety of students and they should be empowered to make those choices.

Pennsylvanians have clearly had enough of Governor Wolf’s damaging mandates and one size fits all approaches to complex problems.”
