  • Restaurant Inspections
    • The Allegheny County Health Department has resumed inspections of restaurant kitchens and other food facilities following the county’s move into the “green phase” of the state’s pandemic reopening plan. Routine inspections had been on hold during the lockdown when restaurants were limited to take-out and delivery service. During that time, health inspectors spent most of their shifts on the phone going over coronavirus-related safety protocols with restaurants. The department also continued to perform on-site visits in response to any consumer complaints.


Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • National Institutes of Health
    • The National Institutes of Health has launched a national database to collect medical information on coronavirus patients in the United States.  The NIH said the platform data will include clinical, laboratory and diagnostic information from hospitals, labs and other health care providers.  The database will help researchers and health care providers answer critical questions relating to COVID-19 illness.  The only identifying data on the platform will include the zip code of the health care group providing the information and the dates of service. No other personal patient information will appear on the site.  Only approved users will be able to access the site and they can only study the information while on the platform and only for COVID-19 research and public health surveillance.
