Masks Required within County Government Buildings
PIKE COUNTY – Pike County residents are to be commended for following state health and safety guidelines – such as social distancing, hand washing, and mask wearing – to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Their vigilance has helped to flatten the curve of the virus, which has contributed to the responsible reopening of County offices and local businesses.
On July 1, Pennsylvania’s Secretary of the Department of Health signed a new order requiring masks in specific settings. The Pike County Commissioners have confirmed with the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania that this order does apply to County Governments.
Regarding Pike County facilities, masks covering the mouth and nose must: Be worn by employees and the public when entering and exiting county buildings including the: administration building, area agency on aging, community planning department, conservation district, courthouse (excluding courtrooms at the discretion of the president judge), magisterial district judge offices (excluding courtrooms at the discretion of magisterial district judges),
prothonotary’s office, training center, and workforce development agency. Be worn in common areas such as break rooms, restrooms, hallways and elevators. Be worn when interacting around others, even if social distancing is maintained.
It is vital that we all continue to work together to keep our community safe and healthy. As well, many county services remain available online. Visit www.PikePa.org for a complete list of these services.
