All team members and guests are welcome to wear face masks at the indoor facilities at Kennywood and Sandcastle.
This only applies to guests and team members indoors and not when they are outside in the parks.
The change comes as the CDC has determined that COVID-19 transmission rates in Allegheny County are at the substantial level.
