Dear Citizens of the Ligonier Valley,

As of 8 p.m. this evening, Governor Wolf has added Westmoreland County to the list of Pennsylvania counties under a Stay At Home order. All non-life-sustaining businesses are ordered to be closed and schools are closed throughout the state through at least April 6.

Additionally the Governor signed several bills today to assist Pennsylvania’s health care and education system and to reschedule the primary election.  The Pennsylvania primary has been moved from April 28th to June 2nd. For more information on all of the bills signed today please follow this link: https://www.governor.pa.gov/newsroom/gov-wolf-signs-covid-19-response-bills-to-bolster-health-care-system-workers-and-education-and-reschedule-the-primary-election/

Please refer back to other notices issued for information relating to filing unemployment claims and business assistance.

Finally, all Pennsylvania residents are encouraged to sign up for AlertPA, a text notification system for health, weather, and other important alerts like COVID-19 updates from commonwealth agencies. Residents can sign up online at www.ready.pa.gov/BeInformed/Signup-For-Alerts.

Yours,

Ligonier Borough, Ligonier Township & The Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce
