In response to growing concerns regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Potter Township is cancelling or postponing Township-produced events and spring programs through April 30, 2020 to follow the mandated closures set forth by Governor Tom Wolf and the recommendations of PA Department of Health, and the CDC.
The cancellations will allow us to better address the public health concerns of the community and also allow us to redirect Township public safety and other personnel in a more effective manner for preventive measures. While this is a difficult decision to make, public safety has and will always be the top priority of Potter Township.
In the event that township-produced activities are rescheduled at a later date, the community will be notified through the Township website, social media and other channels.
The Township is continuing to review special event permits issued to other entities using Township facilities including Potter Athletic Complex (PAC) and Potter Run Park. Additional determinations will be announced on Monday, April 27, 2020. If you were registered for the use of the baseball fields at the PAC, you will receive a phone call and/or email detailing your options moving forward. The safety of event participants, attendees, staff, volunteers, sponsors and spectators is a top priority. The decision to cancel is consistent with this priority to prevent the potential exposure and spread of illness.
Playground equipment is not sanitized routinely, so please use at your own risk. During your park visits. Playground equipment is closed as of Monday, March 30. During your park visits, please practice social distancing and good hygiene as recommended by the CDC.
The Township will remain in close communication with local, state and federal partners and take further action as needed, based on the recommendations of these agencies. Residents are encouraged to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)’s prevention strategies. If you suspect you are ill, please stay home except to seek medical care to prevent the spread of illness. Please visit www.cdc.gov/COVID19 for more information.
