From the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Website:
Anyone, ages 11 and up, can currently register for a Pennsylvania’s online Hunter-Trapper Education course. In an effort to protect public health and reduce overall spread of COVID-19, in-person Hunter-Trapper Education classes have been cancelled through July 10. Beginning July 11, in-person classes may be offered in counties designated as Green in the Governor's three-phase matrix.
Classes will be limited to 50 percent capacity to ensure that social distancing can be maintained.
Classes are limited to pre-registered students only. Walk-in students will not be permitted. A parent or guardian attending with a minor child is required to register or remain outside the facility. All persons in attendance will count towards the maximum number of people for the classroom.
Each student shall be responsible for providing their own face covering/mask and will only be allowed to bring into the classroom a jacket, keys, phone and wallet or purse. Food and drinks will not be provided. Students should bring their own meals and beverages for consumption outside of the classroom.
