Borough Council Extends Temporary COVID-19 Ordinance To December 7

The State College Borough Council voted Monday night to extend its temporary COVID-19 ordinance, which mainly tightens mask-wearing guidance, to December 7.

Any public facility or business in the Borough of State College will continue to require customers, employees, and visitors to wear face coverings until the new ordinance expires. This includes places like grocery stores, retail markets, and CATA buses.

The new ordinance went into immediate effect, and any person or business found in violation of it can still face a $300 fine.

The previous ordinance passed on September 15 and was set to expire either on November 22 or when Centre County was no longer considered an area with “high” transmission of COVID-19.

Currently, every county in Pennsylvania is above this “high” threshold, which is 100 new cases of the virus per 100,000 people over the past seven days. Centre County’s seven-day average per 100k people was 492.04 on November 16, per the CDC.

Penn State’s policy on mask-wearing still remains the same. Currently, all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask inside university buildings. Neither Penn State nor the Borough of State College currently has a policy surrounding social distancing or capacity restrictions.
