To go outside, or to stay indoors? A slice in both directions was made at the Commissioners’ work session on March 11.

The County Commissioners, in conjunction with Beaver County EMS and the CDC, are working on a possible press release in regard to the coronavirus, as was announced on Wednesday at the work session. Commissioner Chairman Dan Camp explained why this is happening:


As of March 11, no cases have been confirmed in Beaver County or in Western Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, Daniel Rossi-Keen, the executive director of Beaver County-based environmental group RiverWise, spoke about the plan to connect Ambridge to Monaca through a walking trail.

It had been announced earlier in 2020 that RiverWise merged with the Ohio River Trail Council, who has also expressed interest in the proposed 7-mile trail.

The Commissioners will have their public meeting on March 12 at 10 AM.
