The Coronavirus has impacted all of our lives. Governors across the country are asking their citizens to practice social distancing and to wear masks when visiting attractions, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, etc.
Governor Wolf issued a press release on 3/1/21 announcing the elimination of out-of-state travel restrictions. It recinds the previous order to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test or place themselves in a 14 day quarantine. The new order also revised maximum occupancy levels for indoor and outdoor events. The administration will continue to monitor the risks posed by COVID-19 across the commonwealth and will reinstate or institute new targeted mitigation tactics as necessary.
Effective April 4, restaurants may resume bar service; alcohol service will be allowed without the purchase of food; the curfew for removing alcoholic drinks from tables will be lifted; and indoor dining capacity will be raised to 75% for those restaurants that are currently self-certified which involves agreeing to strictly comply to all public health safety guidelines and orders, including the cleaning and mitigation protocols and other operational requirements. Requirements such as mask-wearing, and social distancing, including 6 feet between diners still apply. Personal services facilities, gyms and entertainment facilities (casinos, theaters, malls) can increase occupancy to 75%. Maximum occupancy for indoor events is 25% of maximum occupancy, and 50% occupancy for outdoor events.
- Masks must be worn indoors and outdoors when away from your home. Outdoor masking is required if you cannot maintain at least 6 feet distance between someone not from your household. Indoor masking is required at all facilities.
- For dining establishments, once guests are seated they must continue to wear their masks until food or beverage is served.

Please call ahead to ensure that the B&B/Inn is open for business. Some of our innkeepers have closed temporarily to protect themselves, their staff and guests, while others are accepting guests. Find a B&B/Inn that is near your travel route and destination.

The small size of our B&Bs/Inns help to limit the risk of exposure since there are no crowds. Many are taking extra precautions to ensure social distancing among guests - such as serving breakfast in your room.
Booking directly with our B&Bs/Inns is your best option for you to ask what safety measures they have implemented to keep you and your family safe. In the event that you have to reschedule or cancel your reservation, you’ll find innkeepers more willing to work with you to avoid penalties and cancellation fees.
