Regional Coronavirus Updates

  • Allegheny County Department of Health
    • Of the 1,928 cases, 1,807 are confirmed and 121 are probable cases. Additionally, there are 344 past or present hospitalizations (+4). All deaths are of individuals ranging in age from 42-103, with 85 being the median age of those who have died.
  • Mandatory Paid Sick Leave in Pittsburgh
    • Effective Monday June 1, all businesses that operate within the city limits of Pittsburgh are now required to offer paid sick leave to all employees and notice of the sick leave policy must be made noticeable in the workplace. The new ordinance comes as part of the Paid Sick Days Act which went into effect on March 15. The ordinance states that all employers with 15 or more employees must offer up to 40 hours of paid sick leave per year. Those with 15 employees or less are required to allow employees to have up to 24 hours of paid sick leave per year. Printable copies of the notice can be found on the city’s website which includes more information about the ordinance, FAQs and complaint forms.
  • Westmoreland County and CARES Act
    • Westmoreland County expects to receive $31.5 million in federal funding for coronavirus relief efforts, but local officials said the cash won’t help ease a budget crunch exasperated by costs associated with the pandemic. The grant money is part of a $625 million allocation through the state from money received via the federal CARES Act, which awarded relief funds to local governments with populations below 500,000. “We cannot use it towards our expenditures,” Commissioner Sean Kertes said. Commissioners will oversee disbursement of those funds, expected to arrive by mid-July. The money is designated for local governments, towns, cities and boroughs to cover costs associated with the coronavirus responses, grant programs to support economic development organizations, behavioral health and substance abuse treatment services, small business relief programs and nonprofit organizations. Local officials said they are waiting for the state to issue specific guidelines about how the money will be doled out. The governor’s office announced late last week that 60 counties will receive grants for pandemic relief efforts based on population. Washington County is to receive $18.7 million; Butler $16.9 million; Beaver $14.8 million; Fayette $11.6 million and Indiana $17.6 million. Larger counties such as Allegheny received direct funding from the federal government’s stimulus program.
