The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revised its guidance on mask-wearing on May 13, saying that fully vaccinated people don’t have to wear them indoors in uncrowded situations indoors and outside at all, even at a crowded event. 

Pennsylvania’s masking requirement is still in place for unvaccinated people. 

In a statement released on Thursday the State Health Department said that once 70 percent of people over the age of 18 are vaccinated, it will lift the mask mandate for all.
