New Pennsylvania Restrictions Go Into Effect Friday
As much as it pains me that camping season is over for those of us who are fair weather campers, my friends and I who camp in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, are lucky we got the opportunity to be at our campground for a full season, while being safe due to the coronavirus.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has just come out with new restrictions. The Pennsylvania Secretary of Health, Doctor Rachel Levine announced new guidelines to follow to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The new orders will go into effect just after midnight on Friday November 20th. They include needing a negative test result within the past 72 hours when entering the state. If you don't, you will need to go through a 14 day quarantine until you get a negative test result.
There are lot of people who cross the border for work between Pennsylvania and New York State, and the order mentions that they are exempt along with other work related issues. I'm guessing if camping season was still happening, I probably would not be able to travel to the campground as easily as it was during the summer.
Another new order the Pennsylvania Department of Health website states, is to wear a mask not just when you are inside, but also when you are outside. If you have persons in your home who are not living with you, you need to maintain the six feet minimum requirement and wear a mask.
Check out the Pennsylvania Department of Health website for complete details and restrictions.
