Statement on Governor’s Order for Non-Life-Essential Businesses

Date: March 22, 2020
Incident Type: Statement Release
Location: Pittsburgh

Regarding the enforcement of the Governor’s Order prohibiting the operation of all non-life-essential businesses:

Pittsburgh Police will respond to 911 calls and other complaints if businesses do not comply with the order. Officers will investigate and, if necessary, generate a report for potential non-compliance cases for follow-up.

We are confident that this will not be an issue. The Pittsburgh business community wants to do what’s right for the greater safety of the community and we believe they will follow the guidelines and mandates. We understand that this is a difficult time for business owners, and we do not want anyone to be cited for non-compliance.

We are all in this together. We thank everyone for their understanding.
