Democratic Leader McClinton comments on mask guidance for schools and child care

Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton praised today’s announcement of a statewide indoor mask mandate that will begin next week for schools and child care facilities:

“It’s the correct decision for the safety of Pennsylvania families and the health of our economy. The virus is continuing to infect thousands of people and we need to take every reasonable step to stop its spread, particularly among our youngest children who cannot be vaccinated. This also will help us to keep our schools and daycares open, which is essential to so many parents, workers and businesses all over Pennsylvania. This is a very reasonable step and I welcome it.”
