City Government Buildings Closed

City Government Buildings Closed
Allentown city government buildings are closed to the public.

The directive came from Mayor Ray O’Connell this afternoon after Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf issued a “Stay at Home” order for Lehigh and Northampton counties effective at 8:00 p.m.

The closings are in effect until April 6.

The governor’s order seeks to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19 which according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health has infected 1,127 persons in Pennsylvania. There are 38 cases in Lehigh County, 18 of them in Allentown.

More than 800-persons have died in the United States from COVID-19, nearly 200 of them in New York City.
