Monthly News & Updates from APTS

A brief message to address the newest CDC data:

York County is currently considered
an area of
"HIGH community transmission"
and masks are recommended indoors. This is not a mandate from the state, but it is up to the businesses to decide what is best for their employees and customers/clients.

At this time, we will not require masks indoors, however, we will require that you, your loved ones, and any additional caregivers are fully vaccinated. We will not ask to see vaccination cards, we hope that visitors will be truthful and respectful of others, but we want to make sure we are taking precautions to keep everyone as safe as we can. We know there is still a risk of contracting the virus even with vaccination. With that being said, if you have been in contact with someone recently who has tested positive for Covid-19 or if you are not feeling well..... you know the drill. :)
Stay safe everyone!!
