Announcement from

Shirley Purcival, President of Council.

Dear Parkside Residents, March 9, 2020

As President of Council, I would like to inform you that Delaware County Council and Emergency Services held a conference call with local officials in which Vice President Doug Bull, Code Officer Nick Capobianco, Chief Murray and myself were able to participate in. Delaware County Council, for financial and Emergency personnel reasons, has declared a State of Emergency due to the situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus). This Declaration will enable the County to spend money on emergency supplies, meet unbudgeted costs that occur with this virus and also apply for any State and/or Federal funds, if made available, to recoup any unbudgeted funds.

As of today, Delaware County has one confirmed case. The County offices and Court system are open. School districts are open and each school district will make the call to or when to close, based on any contamination. As of now, there is no need to close any schools but the County has asked all residents to follow the safety guidelines that have been stated on numerous newscasts, internet, and social media.

If you or your family members are elderly or have underlining health issues, please avoid large gatherings. As we have heard, symptoms could be a heavy chest with a dry cough and shortness of breath, body aches and a temperature of 100.4. The county is asking, that if you have these symptoms not to immediately go to the emergency room. They have asked that you contact 1-877-Pa-health. The State Board of Health will question you as to your symptoms and will direct you to the emergency services equipped to test you. If you do call "911" they will be asking you the same questions and direct you to the State Board of Health.

Please be assured that our emergency personnel will be taking safety precautions and our Borough council will continually be updated on any changes with this virus. You may also check the Delaware County website for information as to what is open, what changes are forthcoming and general questions concerning the coronavirus.

Thank you. Shirley Purcival, President of Council.
