Declaration of Disaster – Related to COVID-19

March 17, 2020:

East Deer has enacted a Declaration of Disaster – Related to COVID-19. This action was not taken as a result of it being present in our community. There are no known cases of the virus in East Deer Township. This was done at the request of the County Emergency Management Department. The reason for their request is that in the event that we must take action and possibly incur costs associated with the virus that we can move quickly and will possibly be able to be reimbursed as a result of a Federal and State Declaration of Disaster.

The Coronavirus matter is a rapidly evolving situation. Therefore, East Deer Township will be taking steps to limit the exposure or possible spread of the Coronavirus within our Municipal operation. We have no greater responsibility than to protect the health, safety and welfare of our Community.

MARCH 23, 2020 –  Message from Governor Wolf

This afternoon, Governor Wolf issued a Stay-at-Home order for a number of counties, including Allegheny County. There is no curfew in place, but the order goes into place at 8 PM this evening and is in effect for two weeks. This order emphasizes that individuals in the county, to the extent possible, should stay at home and distance themselves from others. There is no change to the life-sustaining businesses and waivers that have previously been in place, or to the requirements for restaurants to limit their operations to take-out and delivery.

Starting Monday, March 30, Deer Lakes will offer free grab-&-go meals twice per week to district families in need of food during this incredibly difficult time. The meals, which can be picked up on Mondays or Wednesdays from 9-11 a.m., are completely free regardless of your financial circumstance or whether or not you have children in our schools.

Also, please remain in your car while picking up food for your loved ones. Our trained and protected staff members will happily bring the food out to you.

In the meantime, please remember that #WeGotThis, so please whenever you can, Stay Calm. Stay Home. Stay Safe.


A food distribution map has been developed to identify available food resources around the county. The map is searchable by a variety of fields, and includes descriptions, eligibility and contact information for many of the sites. It includes school “grab & go” sites, food pantries and other options and is regularly updated. The map can be found at https://tinyurl.com/pghfoodmap. It is also available at bit.ly/ACHDcovid-19 under Help for Residents.
