As part of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts, by consensus of Borough Council, and the support of the Mayor; Umbenhauer Park and all buildings at the park, including restrooms, will be closed, and all events and public programs will be canceled. While closed, borough police officers will continue to work to ensure security and essential operations continue, and that public safety is protected.
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Pennsylvanians can:
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
Cover any coughs or sneezes with your elbow, not your hands
Clean surfaces frequently.
If you are sick, stay home until you are feeling better
