>>State Not Considering Mask Mandate For Schools
(Harrisburg, PA) -- The state is not planning on issuing a mask mandate for schools despite the CDC's guidance. The CDC recommends that everyone in schools wear a mask regardless of their vaccination status. Pennsylvania Department of Education officials are recommending that schools follow that guidance, but no mandates are being issued. Officials say they continue to encourage all eligible individuals to get fully vaccinated to protect themselves and their loved ones.
