Mayor W. Reed Gusciora is urging city residents to get up-to-date information regarding efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic on the City’s website at  Among the links found on the front page are to 1) an information hub for assistance programs and public safety; 2) community impact dashboard for latest stats on the pandemic; and 3) business recovery center for the City’s grant and loans to small businesses.

“We have made efforts to keep the community informed and to keep track of active and confirmed cases, deaths, school and government building closures, and even how many tests we’ve been able to administer,” said Gusciora.

To date, 2,626 COVID-19 tests have been administered, with 2,156 coming back positive.

“We still have not seen an end in sight to the pandemic and we are planning for a resurge in the fall,” continued Gusciora, “It is important that our residents be provided with critical information regarding COVID-19 so that they can protect themselves and their family.”

Gusciora noted that the information hubs are a vital link for those seeking assistance.  Residents can find locations of food pantries and how to obtain general assistance.  Businesses can apply for the City’s low interest loan program.

The newly revised console can be found on the City website, at, with all other public service announcements and COVID-19 related literature.
