Out-of-state travelers coming into Pennsylvania must now have a negative Covid-19 test before entering the state, according to a new order from the state’s Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine.
“If you do not have your test results when you come to Pennsylvania, then you need to quarantine until you get a negative test result. If you can’t get a test, are waiting for your results, or choose not to get a test, you must quarantine for 14 days once you arrive into our state,” Levine said Tuesday.
Any Pennsylvanians who travels back home from other states are also subject to the same rules, but the new order does not apply to out-of-state residents who commute to Pennsylvania for work daily or those who come to the state for medical treatment.
The new order takes effect Friday, Levine said.
