Effectively immediately as of June 7, 2021, Pearl S. Buck International is updating its Covid-19 policies in keeping with current CDC recommendations, which are as follows:

  • It is safe for vaccinated individuals to participate in indoor and outdoor activities without a mask at no risk to themselves. According to the CDC, fully vaccinated people may resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

Effective immediately, if you are fully vaccinated, you have the option of wearing or not wearing a mask while on the premises of Pearl S. Buck International, both outdoors and within all of our buildings.

Guests who are not fully vaccinated must still wear a mask.

The number of persons per tour at the Pearl S. Buck House has been raised from 5 to 10. At this time, we are still asking visitors to make a reservation for tours whenever possible. To make a reservation, please call 215-249-0100.

We thank you for all your patience and support over the past year over the course of the pandemic. We look forward to welcoming even more of you back to the Pearl S. Buck House, the Exhibit Gallery, and our International Gift Shop as everything continues to open up.
