State Coronavirus Updates

Regional Coronavirus Updates

  • Pittsburgh Construction
    • In a statement released Thursday, April 30, the city said workers in these departments — Public Works, Mobility and Infrastructure, and Permits, Licenses and Inspections — will be allowed to “gradually and safely increase outdoor work” beginning Friday, May 1. The following protocols will be in place for those doing any outdoor work:
      • Health screenings will be conducted at the start of each shift
      • Work practices will be modified to maintain 6 feet of distance between all staff
      • Workers must have work gloves and masks or face coverings
      • Handwashing stations and portable toilets at job sites must be provided
      • Hand sanitizer must be provided at job sites
      • Shared trucks, equipment, etc. must be regularly sanitized
  • Local Hospitals Receive State Funding
    • Monongahela Valley Hospital and hospitals in two outlying counties are among those across Pennsylvania sharing in $323 million in loans from the Wolf administration to help them in the COVID-19 crisis. Mon Valley Hospital will receive $15 million from the Hospital Emergency Loan Program that was announced early in the state’s response to the novel coronavirus. Armstrong County Memorial Hospital will receive $12 million and Indiana Regional Medical Center will receive $10 million. They are the only three applications to be approved in southwestern Pennsylvania. The money is specifically set aside for working capital for personnel, equipment and personal protective equipment to help fight COVID-19.
  • Pittsburgh Public Schools
    • All students in Pittsburgh Public Schools will receive passing grades for the fourth quarter, district leaders announced Thursday, April 30 in a virtual news conference. “The grading guidelines are designed to hold students harmless,” said David May-Stein, chief of school performance. “Not all kids are going to be able to do this effectively to where learning can be accurately measured.” Grading guidelines were adjusted to avoid penalizing students with unequal access to remote learning technology. Based on a survey that was sent to students early in the pandemic, the district knew there was a need for around 17,000 laptops and tablets, but existing inventory at the time was only around 2,400 which would work outside school buildings.
  • Pittsburgh City Layoffs
    • Pittsburgh should be able to pull through the coronavirus economic fallout with the help of a significant surplus, but would have to consider massive layoffs in 2021 without assistance from the federal government, the city controller said Thursday, April 30. Controller Michael Lamb briefed reporters through a teleconference on the state of city finances at the end of 2019 and possible ramifications of revenue losses caused by the pandemic. Lamb said the city ended 2019 with a $133 million unencumbered surplus that should help offset major revenue losses this year. He offered a dire outlook for 2021 without financial help from Congress and the Trump administration. The city has about 3,200 employees. Public safety accounts for about 55 percent of the city’s $608 million budgeted expenses.

Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • U.S. House of Representatives
    • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday, April 30 that the House may return to Washington the week of May 11, after scrapping plans to return next week based on the advice of the Capitol physician. She implied, however, that lawmakers will return to Washington only once the second Cares Act is ready for a vote. Pelosi additionally signaled that she plans to move forward with proxy voting and said the House will vote on necessary rule changes shortly, “because you have to have a vote to make these changes,” she said.


National Coronavirus Updates

  • Republicans are more likely than Democrats to say that they would be ready to return to normal day-by-day activities if there were no government social distancing restrictions, a new Gallup survey finds. The survey finds that 44 percent of Republicans would return to normal “right now” if given the chance. That compares with just 4 percent of Democrats and 22 percent of independents who say the same. The Republican figure has jumped 19 points since Gallup posed the same question earlier in April, a period that coincides with several governors in Republican-led states being more aggressive in easing social distancing restrictions.
