Local families can breathe an unmasked sigh of relief after the latest COVID-19 mandate. Pennsylvania and Delaware governors Tom Wolf and John Carney recently issued statements saying that, as long as you are fully vaccinated, you are not required to wear a mask. However, unvaccinated and half-vaccinated people are still required to wear masks in all settings. Furthermore, anyone from age 12 and up is eligible to get vaccinated! Longwood Gardens and most pharmacies are providing vaccines for anyone interested.
Because of this, fully vaccinated students can go back to enjoying the great activities of summer they missed last year. Now they can travel, invite friends over, and attend (or volunteer at) summer camps! This also means they will be able to enter next school year normally and enjoy all the activities that were canceled or modified this year. The vaccines are a long-awaited opportunity for everyone to be protected and get back to normal.
