The City of Philadelphia is reinstating its indoor mask mandate in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The mandate will go into effect on February 22 and will remain in place until at least March 22. All residents and visitors to Philadelphia are required to wear a face covering while indoors, with few exceptions. Face coverings must be worn at all times, even when social distancing is possible. This includes while working, shopping, taking public transportation, and participating in any indoor activity. Dogs trained to detect covid 19 will be present at all indoor locations to enforce the mandate. Those who do not comply with the mandate may be subject to a fine of up to $300.
The reinstatement of the indoor mask mandate is a necessary step to keep Philadelphia residents safe and healthy during the pandemic. With the rise in cases of the more contagious covid 19 variant, it is important to take every precaution to prevent its spread. Wearing a face covering is one of the most effective ways to do this.

Why It’s Important to Wear a Face Covering
Wearing a face covering is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. This is because face coverings help to prevent droplets from being expelled into the air and coming into contact with other people. When droplets containing the virus are released into the air, they can be inhaled by other people and cause them to become sick. Wearing a face covering helps to protect yourself and others from the spread of the virus.
There are many different types of face coverings available, including cloth masks, disposable masks, and clear plastic shields. It is important to choose a face covering that is comfortable and fits snugly over your nose and mouth. You should also be sure to wash your face covering regularly. Face coverings should be worn at all times, even when social distancing is possible.
The City of Philadelphia is committed to keeping its residents safe and healthy during the coronavirus pandemic.
Precautions Taken to Lessen the Risk of Contracting Covid-19
There are many different ways to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is also important to practice social distancing, wash your hands regularly, and avoid touching your face. You should also avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, you should stay home and away from others to prevent the spread of the virus.
