Mitigation Orders Lifted on Memorial Day with Masking Remaining 

Mitigation orders except masking were lifted on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31st.  

This change means that restaurants, bars, stores, salons, gyms, theaters, event venues, nightclubs, and other businesses can open at 100% capacity, and crowd-size limits are lifted on all indoor and outdoor gatherings.

The Department of Health recommends that Pennsylvanians refer to CDC guidance and recommendations regarding ongoing COVID-19 safety measures and procedures. 

These updates will not prevent municipalities and school districts from ​continuing and implementing stricter mitigation efforts.  

The governor’s Proclamation of Disaster Emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic remains in place.
