The American Philatelic Society and American Philatelic Research Library announced the American Philatelic Center resumes less restrictive operations effective June 1, 2021. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf lifted most COVID health and safety restrictions effective May 31, allowing less restrictive environments for businesses in the Commonwealth.
“We’re ready to welcome our members and the public back to the American Philatelic Center,” said Scott English, Executive Director of the American Philatelic Society, “We’re still not completely back to pre-pandemic operations, but our doors are open, so make plans to visit.”
The APC will operate on normal business hours between 8:30 am to 5 pm. Visitors will use Circuit Sales, Gift/Stamp Shop, Expertizing, Headsville Post Office, and the Library. Other areas of the APC will not be open to the public or members. At this time, we are not offering tours of the American Philatelic Center.
All visitors to the APC will sign in for contact tracing purposes. Each visitor will also be issued a name badge to fill out and wear during the visit.
Consistent with the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, anyone who is not fully vaccinated will be required to wear a facemask in the building. There is no validation requirement, but we ask visitors to respect the health and safety of our staff and other visitors.
