Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, updated its mask-wearing and social distancing guidelines on Monday as county officials get tougher on COVID-19 with rising case counts.

Masking in all public spaces is now recommended, county leaders announced at a 10 a.m. press conference.

Nearby, Bucks County officials last week implemented new mask-wearing rules and recommendations because of similarly rising case counts. The increase in COVID-19 cases is largely due to the more infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus.
