COVID-19 : Township Procedures, Resources & Vaccination Information
A Note From Penn Township
Penn Township has been, and is continuing to monitor the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic closely. We are dedicated to keeping Penn Township residents, businesses and visitors safe and healthy while also providing them with accurate information and resources. With that in mind, we decided to create this page to keep our residents and business owners informed and updated on the ins and outs of the pandemic. We wish everyone well and urge you to follow the guidelines put in place by the CDC and Health Department to assist in avoiding spread in our community.
What is Penn Township Doing to Minimize Risk?
On Sunday, March 15, 2020 the Penn Township Board of Supervisors approved Resolution 2020-06 Declaration of Disaster Emergency. This declaration will allow the township to take the necessary steps to meet the demands of this emergency. This proclamation will be in effect until the National Emergency is lifted.
Large facilities and groups within Penn Township are being asked to come up with and share their action plans for this pandemic. Our Emergency Management Coordinator, Chuck Freese, is gathering those plans. He is charged with coordinating and forwarding unmet needs and requests to the county.
