Upper St. Clair Taking Preventative Measures

The Township of Upper St. Clair administrators continue to closely monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are receiving the latest updates from the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) and agencies with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This continues to be a very fluid situation and we will continue to update the public. 

Township administrators urge staff and residents to stay home if you feel sick. In addition, please follow common sense, but important, preventative measures:

-Wash your hands frequently with water and soap for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
-Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If there is no tissue available, cough or sneeze into your shoulder or sleeve.
-Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
-Avoid shaking hands.

Township administrators will continue to coordinate with the Commonwealth, County and Upper St. Clair School District as the response evolves over the coming days and weeks ahead. Check here on the Township website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for updates as information is made available. 

For more information regarding COVID-19, including ongoing updates, visit the ACHD website, or call ACHD at 412-687-2243.
