The Delta variant is currently the predominant strain of the virus in the United States and its higher transmissibility is fueling a rapid and alarming rise in the COVID case and hospitalization rates around the country and here in south-central Pennsylvania.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, should wear a mask indoors in areas of “substantial” or “high” community spread of the virus. All six of the counties served by our Council currently fall into one of those two categories.
Beginning Tuesday, August 17, all visitors to either the Mechanicsburg or York Service Centers and Scout Shops are asked to please wear a mask inside our buildings and stay six feet away from others. Our staff can provide you with a mask, if necessary.
While it is discouraging to return to asking everyone to wear a mask again, our top priority is the health and safety of visitors to our facilities, as well as our staff. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
