Philadelphia, PA - To stem the surge of new coronavirus cases, Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine announced orders on out-of-state travel and mask-wearing.
Pennsylvania's New Travel Rules
Travelers from out of state will be required to have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entering the state. Those who choose not to get tested will have to quarantine for 14 days.
The new order will not apply to individuals communicating to and from another state for work or medical treatments.
Dr. Levine also asked residents to stay within their own household and restrict travel, asking families to refrain from seeing friends and family during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The new order will take effect the same day as Philadelphia’s new restrictions on Friday, Nov. 20, 2020, and is voluntary. It also will not apply to individuals going to another state for work or medical treatment.
