Order of the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health Directing Public Health Safety Measures for Businesses Permitted to Maintain In-person Operations

The 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a contagious disease that is rapidly
spreading from person to person in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. COVID-19 can
be transmitted from people who are infected with the virus even if they are asymptomatic
or their symptoms are mild, such as a cough. Additionally, exposure is possible by touching
a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching one’s mouth, nose, or eyes.
