“So, this is my question, now does that apply for employees? What does that mean for me? Do I ask my employees whether or not they’ve been vaccinated?” Kounoupis said. “It’s a very awkward situation.” Kounoupis says she’ll leave it alone, but she doesn’t know what to do with her staff. The state has adopted the CDC guidance for those fully vaccinated, but everyone else will have to wait.
“Are you supposed to ask people? Are you vaccinated? Like, I am not a doctor,” Mulligan said. She’s offering masks to those who don’t have one, but feels these new guidelines put her in a tough spot.
“I’m in no position to ask whether they’ve been vaccinated or not,” said Yanna Kounoupis, co-owner of Billy’s Diner. “Our Jim Thorpe store, we had an employee call me and say we have had about five people enter without masks,” Mulligan said.

“We’re just trying to sustain our business, treat everyone with respect here at The Gem Shop, and we hope everyone is kind during this time until they figure it out,” Mulligan said. “Once 70% of Pennsylvanians over 18 are fully vaccinated, we can completely lift the masking order,” Pennsylvania’s Acting Health Secretary Alison Beam said in a statement.
