[03/28/2020] – Local Updates on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Today’s update: Governor Wolf and Health Secretary Expand ‘Stay at Home’ Order to Centre County

Our Local Health Department is working in conjunction with the Centre Region Emergency Management Agency (CREMA) Response Team to monitor the situation and provide updates to our community (please scroll through this webpage to view all the updates and resources).  The CREMA, which coordinates efforts with the Pennsylvania State University, Centre County Office of Emergency Services and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, was formed many years ago by the Centre Region municipalities, creating a single emergency operations plan, a shared emergency operations center, and the hiring of an Emergency Management Coordinator to deal with multi-jurisdictional disasters and other emergencies, including widespread community health threats.  

PLEASE NOTE: Centre County is Under a Stay-At-Home Order (DOWNLOAD)

At this time our local Health Department and the CREMA are advising the community to follow the PA Department of Health and CDC guidelines on COVID-19. Below you will find links to their websites that give the most current and vetted information to the public on how to monitor and respond to COVID-19.  We will be monitoring the situation continuously and will be updating our website with the information necessary to keep our community informed on COVID-19.


Potter Township staff have been assessing the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19).  In consideration for the health and safety of our community and employees, we are instituting the  following temporary changes to our services.
