The PACA staff continue to serve the members either in the office or remotely during this unprecedented time for our Commonwealth and nation. Please continue to reach out via phone and email to any staff member with your questions, concerns, feedback, etc.
While in-person visits are discouraged at this time for the safety of all, we do wish to continue and encourage contact with our members via our electronic communications and our virtual meeting platform.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has released an updated order requiring universal face coverings. According to the press release, the intent is to “strengthen” the original order that was placed earlier in the year.
To help the public understand the new order, the Department of Health has released a Universal Masking FAQ document.
One area that had resulted in questions by our membership earlier in the year was face coverings while working. Please note that the updated order does provide the following exceptions:
A. If wearing a face covering while working would create an unsafe condition in which to operate equipment or execute a task as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines.
B. If wearing a face covering would either cause a medical condition, or exacerbate an existing one, including respiratory issues that impede breathing, a mental health condition or a disability.
C. When necessary to confirm the individual’s identity.
D. While obtaining a service that requires the temporary removal of the face covering, such as dental services.
E. When working alone and isolated from interaction with other people with little or no expectation of in-person interaction."
F. If an individual is communicating or seeking to communicate with someone who is hearing-impaired or has another disability, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
If you have any questions, please contact Peter Vlahos.
