All team members and guests are being asked to wear face masks at indoor facilities at Kennywood and Sandcastle.
This only applies for guests and team members indoors and not when they are outdoors at the parks.

“Now that Allegheny County is noted as having reached the Substantial level, we’re asking all guests and team members to wear a mask when indoors at Kennywood and Sandcastle, per the CDC’s guidance. This only applies indoors,” a Kennywood spokesperson told KDKA.
Back in mid-May, Kennywood had announced fully vaccinated guests were not required to wear masks at the park in most situations when new case rates of the virus were reaching a low point.MORE NEWS: Study: Odds Of School COVID-19 Flare-Up Lower With Mask Mandate
