Did you know that Chester County is one of only 6 counties in Pennsylvania to have its own health department? Working closely with this valuable resource, as well as businesses, municipalities, schools, nonprofits, places of worship and residents like you, the COVID-19 Business Task Force has developed Restore Chester County's Resident Toolkit. The goal for us all: To feel confident and safe as we plan to return to Chester County's quality of place, and to navigate the new guidelines necessary to do so. We welcome your feedback as we continue to develop this trusted resource, curated for Chester County and its residents.


Restore Chester County's Resident Toolkit is your comprehensive guide for residents throughout the COVID-19 reopening process and beyond. Our goal is to provide you with streamlined access to tools that are adaptable and scalable.

Click on each key topic below to find best practices compiled from federal, state and county guidelines and vetted by state and local health departments. In addition, the chart provided here is an overview of Pennsylvania regulations for reopening through the red, yellow and green phases as they compare to CDC regulations. Chester County residents have indicated that these are the topics of highest concern at this point. We welcome your feedback as we continue to make updates.
