The CDC has now listed Bucks County as “communities of high transmission” for the coronavirus, as the number of new cases climbs with the more contagious delta variant. Bucks County reported and average of 101 new cases per day for the 7-day floating average as of 8/19/2021. Many more could be infected with COVID-19 and not know it, as testing has receded with the availability of vaccines.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that even fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. Doylestown Township is requiring anyone entering one of our buildings to please wear a mask.
Bucks county has not issued a mask mandate. Pennsylvania health officials have said statewide mask mandates are unlikely, but recommend following CDC guidelines.
