Dear Colleague,

As we move beyond the regular school year and into summer activities, it is important to remember the order requiring masks for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals will end June 28 or when 70 percent of adults in Pennsylvania are fully vaccinated, whichever comes first.

After the order ends, local education agencies (LEAs) will have the authority to determine their own masking policy. LEAs should review the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in making these decisions.

The Departments of Health and Education will continue to closely monitor CDC guidance and will provide additional information as it becomes available.

Again, thank you for your continued efforts to ensure a safe learning environment during this challenging school year – we look forward to a brighter future.
