Pennsylvania Reinstates Mask Mandate to fight Omicron BA.2

As of Monday, April 18, Philadelphia, PA, will become the first major US city to reimplement a COVID-19 indoor mask mandate citywide for all schools, businesses, restaurants, government buildings, and other indoor locations.  This move is in response to a more than 50% increase in COVID-19 positivity in the City.  It follows significant COVID-19 lockdowns occurring in China, where tens of millions of residents have faced business closures and lockdowns.  These infection outbreaks are believed to be tied to the new, highly transmissible Omicron BA.2 variant of the COVID-19 virus.

Surveillance Testing Programs are a Cost-Effective Way to Protect the Workplace.
