State health officials are also ramping up their efforts to have people wear masks.
Dr. Rachel Levine says the universal mask order now extends to people indoors and outdoors, except inside your own home.
“It really is the responsibility of businesses to enforce the universal masking order,” Levine said. “Now we don’t want businesses as they enforce them to lead to conflict or anything like that. But, it will be the responsibility of law enforcement and businesses to enforce those mandates when people are in those businesses.”
Levine says even though the Department of Health can make these orders, it’s ultimately up to individuals to help stop the spread.
“We are all blessed to have freedoms in our country, but with freedom comes responsibility. That’s not a new concept, that’s been articulated since the beginning of the country. And we all have a responsibility to work toward the common good,” Levine said.
“Right now, that means following these orders and guidance in terms of stopping the spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania. So in the end it will come down to the actions of each and everyone of us.”
Levine added that there will only be new restrictions if the situation worsens.
