  • City of Pittsburgh Event Attendance Limits
    • Mayor Bill Peduto is now encouraging community events keep attendance at 250 people or under, lining up with directives under Gov. Tom Wolf’s green phase. Mayor Peduto’s executive order, signed on Friday, rescinds his original mid-March order that limited gatherings to 50 people or less in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. The order language states: “subject to applicable law including, but not limited to, rights granted under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and the executive orders of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, it is the policy of the City of Pittsburgh to encourage postponement and cancellation of all community or public gatherings in excess of 250 people. Organizers of events are advised to consult guidelines of the CDC, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the Allegheny County Health Department before planning any event.” City Council heard and approved the executive order Tuesday.
  • Outdoor Recreation
    • Outdoor recreation is slowly returning to Pittsburgh as the city begins to loosen social-distancing restrictions and Allegheny County begins life in the “green” phase of reopening. On Tuesday June 9, the city of Pittsburgh announced that certain recreation hubs — including basketball courts, ball fields, playgrounds and spray works — will soon be allowed to reopen, according to a press release. This will be the first time these spaces will be available for public use since the city shut them down in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These amenities will be reopened “on a rolling basis,” though the press release also indicated that the city believes “most should be completed” by Monday, June 15. Organized sports will also be allowed to start up again “provided that organizers follow safety guidelines,” though the press release did not specify a date when those would be officially allowed again.
  • Allegheny County and Tear Gas
    • Allegheny County and Pittsburgh officials plan to introduce separate police reform ordinances Tuesday that include measures limiting the use of force by police in nonviolent protest situations. A bill sponsored by Allegheny County Councilwomen Bethany Hallam and Olivia Bennett would ban the use of so-called less-lethal force, including tear gas and rubber bullets, to disperse a crowd. Police who violate the ordinance would be subject to a maximum $300 fine and 30-day jail sentence for each violation.


Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • Department of Health and Human Services
    • The Department of Health and Human Services said Tuesday that it is taking additional steps to provide federal coronavirus relief funding to health care providers and hospitals that care for the poor and uninsured.  The agency expects to dole out about $15 billion to providers that participate in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program but have not yet received payments from the relief fund that Congress authorized. The money is intended to compensate those that lost revenue or had increased expenses because of the coronavirus pandemic.  The additional funding is expected to support several hundred thousand more providers, including pediatricians, obstetrician-gynecologists, dentists, opioid treatment and mental health specialists, assisted living facilities and other home and community providers.  Also, safety net hospitals that serve a large share of low-income Americans and the uninsured will receive $10 billion this week.
