PA Department of Health Amended Travel Order
On November 25, 2020, the Pennsylvania Department of Health amended its Order relating to travel. Prior to the amendment, all non-exempted individuals traveling into or returning to the Commonwealth from any location outside of the Commonwealth were required to obtain a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth, or place themselves in quarantine for 14 days after entering the Commonwealth.
With the amendment, the Order now allows non-exempted individuals traveling into or returning to the Commonwealth, who failed to obtain a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth, the ability to end the mandated quarantine early, by obtaining a negative Covid-19 test after entering the Commonwealth and during the 14-day quarantine period.
Additionally, with the amendment, individuals 11 years of age and under are now exempt from the mandates of the Order.
