Regional Coronavirus Updates

  • Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
    • The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank has announced an emergency drive-up food distribution at the parking lots of PPG Paints Arena from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday April 24.

  • Federal courthouses in the Western District of Pennsylvania
    • Those entering federal courthouses in the Western District of Pennsylvania will have to wear face coverings, according to an order issued Tuesday April 21 by Chief Judge Mark R. Hornak. Hornak said the order is meant to protect the health and safety of those doing business in the courthouses. Anyone attempting to enter one of the three courthouses — in Pittsburgh, Erie and Johnstown — without a face covering will be stopped by security officers, who will check if the visitor’s business can be handled without entering the building.
  • Murrysville
    • Murrysville officials are hoping that reducing planning commission meetings from two to one per month will make it easier for the commission to achieve a consistent quorum to conduct business. The seven-member commission was only able to hold one monthly meeting during at least six months of 2019, according to the municipality’s posted planning agendas. Council this week briefly discussed reducing the number of commissioners from seven to five, and potentially adding alternates.

Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • U.S. House of Representatives
    • A new bill being proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives could allow Americans to forgo their mortgage and rent payments through the duration of the coronavirus crisis in the United States, according to reports.  Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) introduced the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act on Friday.  All Americans would be eligible regardless of income and would provide full rent and mortgage forgiveness at their place of residence for up to a year.
  • U.S. Senate
    • The Senate approved a $484 billion coronavirus relief package on Tuesday April 21 that would revive a depleted loan program for distressed small businesses and provide funds for hospitals and coronavirus testing, breaking a partisan impasse over the latest infusion of federal money to address the public health and economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. The measure was the product of an intense round of negotiations between Democrats and the Trump administration that unfolded as the small-business loan program created by the $2.2 trillion stimulus law quickly ran out of funding, collapsing under a glut of applications from desperate companies struggling to stay afloat.


National Coronavirus Updates

  • According to CNN, as of 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, there are 45,153 coronavirus-related deaths and 826,248 total positive cases in the United States.
  • Officials in Santa Clara County, Calif., announced late Tuesday April 21 that two residents there died of the coronavirus in early and mid-February, making them the earliest known victims of the pandemic in the United States. The new information may shift the timeline of the virus’s spread through the country weeks earlier than previously believed. Dr. Cody said the individuals who died in February did not have any known travel histories that would have exposed them to the virus, which first appeared in China. They are presumed to have contracted the virus in the community, she said.
