Pennsylvania has mandated that people wear face masks even in their own homes, if people are visiting their homes.
This should make Thanksgiving interesting in the state that is the home of the first first nationally celebrated Thanksgiving, which occurred in 1777.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health issued the following guidance on the order:
Do I need to wear a mask when around my family members or at a friend’s house?
Yes. A face covering is required when indoors and around persons who are not part of the same household. For example, if you are a part of a family of four who is hosting a dinner with extended family, friends or neighbors, all attendees must wear face coverings. If having dinner with just the persons who reside in the same home as you, you do not need to wear face coverings. If outdoors and able to maintain sustained physical distance, face coverings are recommended, but not required.
