PENNSYLVANIA — Acting Secretary of Health and Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Denise Johnson today visited the Harrisburg Amtrak Station to highlight continued efforts in the community to keep travelers safe from COVID-19.

The Department of Health distributed COVID-19 prevention kits that include three at-home antigen test kits, fact sheets, hand sanitizer, disposable face masks and disinfecting wipes to Harrisburg Amtrak Station passengers.

“COVID-19 is with us – but we have tools to keep ourselves safe. This effort is one way to remind Pennsylvanians of healthy preventative habits while also helping to ensure they have access to these tools while traveling,” Dr. Johnson said. “People should feel comfortable traveling for work or leisure as they explore the commonwealth.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grant funding has supported these efforts to inform travelers and provide resources. This grant also supports a statewide media campaign that will be shared through the end of 2022 to encourage domestic and international travelers to practice preventative efforts to avoid contracting and spreading COVID-19. The campaign materials include placement of materials like videos, posters and billboards at airports and other travel hubs.

In addition to this effort, the department will also distribute COVID-19 prevention kits to travelers at the Lancaster Amtrak Station on Sept. 16 from 12:30 to 5 p.m.
