Lebanon County Tourism & COVID-19

Visiting the Lebanon Valley & COVID Precautions

 

Pennsylvania is uniting against COVID. Here are the mitigation measures in place to keep people safe:

It’s important that everyone takes precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19. COVID mitigation orders have been lifted, however, we continue to urge  you to follow CDC guidance for wearing a mask where required by law, rule, and regulations, including healthcare, local business and workplace guidance. 

Now that winter is upon us and more people are spending time indoors, it’s important to practice safety measures to protect yourself and those around you.

Practice Healthy Habits

 

Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands is one of the most important steps you can take in staying healthy.

Keep Your Physical Distance

It’s important to keep a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household. To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.

Wear a Mask

The department continues to urge Pennsylvanians to follow CDC guidance for wearing a mask where required by law, rule, and regulations, including healthcare, local business and workplace guidance.  For the protection of themselves and others, individuals who have not yet been vaccinated or are partially vaccinated are still encouraged to wear a mask when in public. The CDC requires individuals to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs, such as airports and stations. In addition, all individuals should still follow guidance at workplaces, local businesses, long-term care facilities, hospitals and other healthcare facilities, prisons, and shelters.

Don’t Touch Your Face

Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Clean Surfaces

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces  — especially when someone is ill.
