Are we able to e-file state returns after 11/21/2020 while the IRS e-file system is down for maintenance?

No, not for PA, which is a piggyback state.  See this article for the list of standalone vs piggyback states:

Generally No. There was an in program alert that I think said you could still efile CA and one other state.

So they 'said'... but CA piggybacks on the Fed so I don't see how it will work.  And I have no returns to experiment with.

You can Efile CA without the fed, CA is stand alone.
