Masking Guidelines Update

On Thursday, May 13, the CDC released new masking recommendations. The new recommendations state that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting. However, CDC explicitly states that these new recommendations are NOT intended for healthcare settings.

Staff, patients and visitors must all continue to wear masks – regardless of their vaccination status – in all Penn Medicine facilities.
