COVID-19 Guidance




The Montgomery County Office of Public Health concurs with the CDC masking guidelines, as adopted by Pennsylvania Department of Health, for vaccinated individuals. People fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can resume indoor and outdoor activities without wearing a mask or socially distancing except where required by local businesses or workplace guidance. Masks are still required for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in crowded indoor areas including buses, planes and hospitals and healthcare settings.

To be considered fully vaccinated you must meet the following:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

 Businesses should have a policy and workplace guidance in place for employees regarding masks/face coverings. Employees that are not vaccinated should wear a mask. Businesses should post signage for their patrons stating at minimum that unvaccinated individuals are still required to wear a mask. Businesses may adopt a stricter policy if they choose.

Montgomery County Office of Public Health is not requiring masking/face covering while unvaccinated individuals are participating in high-exertion outdoor activities such as sports or exercising.

Masking provides maximal protection to the individual and those in proximity to them. Nothing about this updated guidance should be construed as prohibiting the practice if desired by the individual.
