As Pennsylvania mask order takes effect, most say they’ll follow the mandate | TribLIVE.com

2568723_web1_GTR-MaskDeadline-2-042020If it helps keep people healthy during the coronavirus pandemic, the statewide order requiring customers and employees of businesses to wear masks makes sense, people in the region said Sunday evening.

It went into effect at 8 p.m.

The order, announced Wednesday by Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine, stipulates that businesses turn away customers who don’t wear masks.

Customers at a Harmar Sheetz said they could deal with it.

Some were wearing masks as they entered the store or pumped gas just before the deadline, but most were not.

“It makes sense and it’s reasonable, I think,” said Dom Zanotto, 18, of Lower Burrell. “I worked today and I saw a bunch of people weren’t wearing them.”

Zanotto, who works for Walmart, wasn’t wearing a mask, but he had one in his pocket and said he would follow the order.
