State and National Resources

The Department of Health, along with federal and local public health officials, are closely monitoring the situation and the commonwealth is prepared to respond to the community spread of this virus.

It’s important for everyone to take action to help prevent the spread of the virus. The best thing we all can do at this time is be extra vigilant about precautions normally taken during flu season, and pay close attention to recommendations and guidelines.

As this situation evolves, we encourage you to monitor health.pa.gov, their Facebook page and Twitter account. It’s important to remember that the most accurate and timely information regarding this outbreak in Pennsylvania is available through the Department of Health.

While the U.S. government has not suggested limiting domestic travel or imposed restrictions on international inbound travel beyond those already in place, please be mindful that this could change quickly.
