During this pandemic, it is more important than ever for us to be kind neighbors and take precautions to avoid spreading the coronavirus. One easy way to protect your neighbors is by wearing a mask in public places, as so many of us are doing here in Squirrel Hill!
The CDC “recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.” The CDC discourages the use of surgical or N-95 masks, which need to be reserved for healthcare workers.
Shopping at essential businesses, like grocery stores or pharmacies
Visiting your health care provider
On public transportation
Interacting with customers/clients at essential businesses
Feeling sick, coughing or sneezing
As important as it is to wear a mask, it’s not enough to protect our community from COVID-19! To be a kind neighbor, please continue to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and practice social distancing when possible.

Preserving, Improving, and Celebrating the Quality of Life in Squirrel Hill
For over fifty years, the Coalition has been an active and important link in the community. It has served as a sounding board for new ideas, as well as a “watchdog” in the areas of public safety, education, residential quality, the business district, and parks and open space. With its focus on the quality of life in the 14th Ward, SHUC continues to monitor activities and future developments in the community through a range of standing committees.
