He said Allegheny County will protect homeless residents by install handwashing stations and portable water in encampments and securing hotel rooms if any of the county’s homeless developed COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Southwestern Pennsylvania
    • Front line health care workers at Allegheny Health Network have begun using sophisticated face masks to improve protection from the new coronavirus. Staff in the intensive care units, emergency department and other areas of system hospitals have begun using P100 face masks, which filter nearly 100% of airborne particles that carry the risk of COVID-19. The P100 masks are industrial grade respirators and can be disinfected and reused repeatedly. AHN acquired the masks from MSA Safety, a Butler County-based company that makes protective gear. The health care system received its first shipment of 4,000 of the new respirators and is distributing them to AHN hospitals.
