Warren issues statement on Pennsylvania’s school mask policy
YARDLEY, Aug. 31 – State Rep. Perry Warren, D-Bucks, issued the following statement about today’s action requiring masks inside Pennsylvania’s K-12 schools, early learning programs and childcare providers.
“This measure will help keep schools and daycares open, our children safely in schools and their parents at work,” Warren said. “It is consistent with CDC recommendations that indoor masking protects children, students, teachers and staff – and it provides a pathway to keep everyone safe and healthy.”
Gov. Tom Wolf joined the departments of Health, Human Services and Education today to discuss the current state of COVID-19 and a new Secretary of Health order requiring masks to be worn inside K-12 school buildings, early learning programs and childcare providers.
