Changing Conditions May Trigger Restrictive Color Designations

Depending on the public health and economic conditions facing regions or counties, there could be additional actions, orders, or guidance that is provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) or Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) as a county or region is designated red, yellow, or green.

Some counties or regions may not experience a straight path from a red designation, to a yellow, and then a green designation. Instead, cycling back and forth between less restrictive to more restrictive designations may occur as public health indicators improve or worsen.

This means that each library will need to be ready to respond to changing conditions and include those scenarios in their local reopening plans.
