EMERGENCY SNOW REMOVAL PLAN
The Weather Forecast for the next 5 to 7 days may bring an additional 6 inches of snow. In order for the Borough to maintain the roads in a passable condition, we are requesting that homeowners with vehicles try to park their vehicle off the street.
For the residence of Center Avenue, the Borough will be opening a parking area behind Center Avenue at the end of McClure Street, for this possible upcoming snow event. This will allow the Street Department to have better access for
snow removal. After completion you can place your vehicle back on the street.
In the event we receive good news, the borough will not have to proceed with
this activity. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
With the state changing Washington County's status from red to yellow, we will resume collecting cardboard, yard waste and all regular household trash on May 18, 2020.
We ask that this waste be put out in moderation so as not to overwhelm our employees and equipment.What is not picked up the first week will be collected over the following weeks until we are all caught up.
Thank you for your cooperation through these difficult times~

Census Day April 1, 2020
In response to many inquiries regarding COVID-19, the public may find following information useful:
- As of 3:30 p.m., 3/15/2020 there is a single presumptive positive in Washington County. The Pennsylvania Department of Health released this information and nothing else.
- Washington County does not have statutory authority to close commercial venues. Washington County has encouraged unnecessary venues to close or be postponed.
- Washington County has not declared a State of Emergency. Our critical services have not been overwhelmed, nor are they on the verge of being overwhelmed.
- Individuals at greatest risk from COVID-19 are those with significant underlying medical issues such as diabetes, cardiac disease, or respiratory problems.
- Based on the current data, 95 percent of people who get COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms, says Sandro Galea, the dean of Boston University’s School of Public Health. Some people will get the COVID-19 and not even know they have it.
- A bad case of COVID-19 for a healthy person will likely be no worse than a bad case of regular flu. Sandro Galea, the dean of Boston University’s School of Public Health says, causing a headache, fever, soreness, nausea, and a cough. You will recover from it in a matter of days (again, based on the current data).
- Please continue personal safeguards: hand washing, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, covering your cough, trying to maintain a 6’ distance between people, and staying home when you are sick.
- People who are sick should contact their Primary Care Physician or the Pennsylvania Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH
- Only people experiencing significant distress along with flulike symptoms should contact the hospital.
