PA Adds New COVID-19 Travel Requirements

The PA Department of Health laid out new travel requirements for people entering the Commonwealth of PA.  Effective on November 21, 2020, “Individuals traveling into and returning to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania from any other State or Commonwealth or an international location, must produce evidence of a negative SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) test from a specimen collected within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth, or quarantine for 14 days upon entering, unless they qualify for one of the exemptions specified in Section 4.” 

While these measures seem drastic, many other states have had similar requirements in place for months. With COVID-19 cases increasing throughout the country, we all need to do our part to help with mitigation steps. For our out-of-state travelers, we will be using a self-certification form that is now common in other states. You are responsible for your own COVID-19 testing but we ask for basic information about your testing before you arrive. 

The Governor of PA also expanded the requirements for when and where masks must be worn. These requirements certainly seem like “no brainers” and are easy to follow. Our County, the Commonwealth of PA, and various state associations have been calling on everyone to “Mask Up” fro months. And as you may know, masks are required in all common areas in our B&B.

We are doing everything qw can here at the B&B to keep you (and us) safe during this pandemic.  Read our previous blog that explains all the other steps we have been taking to stay safe and give you a safe stay!
