Covid-19 restriction updates

Somerset County in South Western PA moved to the Green phase on June 5, 2020. Which means pretty much everything is open with new protocols/precautions.

Even if it is a place you visit each year, many attractions have new hours, operate at 50% capacity or may require an appointment. Plan for a successful trip with a quick phone call before you visit. The Facebook page for your intended destination is also a good place to check for up to date news.

Here’s what green means:

Events

  • Gatherings of more than 250 people remain prohibited. This would include most festivals, conferences, sporting events or concerts.
  • Religious worship is exempt from restrictions, but social distancing and other mitigation methods are strongly encouraged.

Business

  • All businesses operating at 50% occupancy in yellow phase may increase to 75%, but working remotely is still strongly encouraged.
  • Businesses with in-person operations must follow updated safety requirements.
  • Personal care services, such as hair salons and barbershops, open at 50% occupancy and by appointment only
  • Construction activity may return to full capacity

Dining and recreation

  • Restaurants and bars open for dine-in service, but with occupancy limits and other guidelines.
  • Indoor recreation, including gyms, spas and health and wellness facilities, open at 50% occupancy with appointments strongly encouraged
  • All entertainment, including casinos, theaters and shopping malls, open at 50% occupancy
