Philly abandoning COVID-19 response levels that led to the city’s mask mandate

22 Apr 2022 11:47 AM | Travis Oliver (Administrator)

The mask mandate ended with a unanimous vote from the Philadelphia Board of Health Thursday, and city health commissioner Cheryl Bettigole said the entire system being used to evaluate COVID-19 risk in the city was being scrapped.

”It is a rescission of the existing metrics that would require masking at a certain level,” said Bettigole.

A news release from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health Friday morning confirmed the end of the tiered risk evaluation system.

With the end of the indoor mask requirement, which required people to wear masks within indoor public settings like businesses, offices, and gyms, the city shifted to a “strong recommendation” that people cover their faces.
