Stores will initially reopen with limited hours, 10 am to 7pm.

As Goodwill’s stores reopen, the safety and well-being of customers, donors and team members will be highest priority, and the following procedures will be implemented:

The public is encouraged to visit www.goodwillswpa.org for a daily updated status of Goodwill store openings in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Masks will be required for all visitors and county employees. Hand sanitizer will be available in all offices.

If you are sick or believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, please do not visit any county offices. Additionally, please only bring the minimum amount of people to conduct your business.

Social Security

All local Social Security offices are closed to the public indefinitely, though local offices will continue to provide services by phone.

The phone number for local offices is 1-800-772-1213.

Department of Transportation (DMV)

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has extended the expiration dates for driver’s licenses, identification cards, and learner’s permits in response to statewide COVID-19 mitigation efforts.

Expiration dates for driver’s licenses, photo ID cards and learner’s permits scheduled to expire from March 16 through July 31, 2020 have been extended until July 31. These extensions are in addition to those announced May 27.

A camera card is considered a driver’s license, so it is covered by the same terms and conditions extending other driver’s license products. Camera cards with expiration dates within this timeframe are also extended through July 31.

The following products were previously extended until June 30 and will not be extended:

As PennDOT reopens Driver License and Photo License Centers, services will be in high demand, and customers should expect longer than normal waits. PennDOT staff will work with each customer when they arrive to plan their visit, with additional staff serving as greeters to screen documents and provide information for a smooth and safe transaction as possible. PennDOT apologizes for this inconvenience and appreciates customers' understanding during this transition.
Customers may complete various transactions and access multiple resources via our website: www.dmv.pa.gov.

Driver and vehicle online services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and include driver's license, photo ID and vehicle registration renewals; driver-history services; changes of address; driver license and vehicle registration restoration letters; ability to pay driver license or vehicle insurance restoration fee; driver license and photo ID duplicates; and driver exam scheduling. There are no additional fees for using online services.

Driver’s license photos are notoriously unflattering to many people, but if you don’t like yours, you might have to learn to live with it. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced that it will use existing photos on file for customers who renew their driver’s licenses and identification cards.

“Using a customer’s existing photo will help limit the number of people in our driver and photo license centers, and by extension, help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19,” acting PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian said. “This new process is not only a convenience, but it will help to keep our customers and staff safe.”

All customers who renew their driver’s license or photo ID card online or through the mail will receive a new product using the most recent photo of that individual that exists in PennDOT’s system. No camera cards will be issued to these customers, and they will receive their new license or identification by mail within 15 days, PennDOT said.

Non-commercial driver’s license and photo ID card holders may renew online, providing there are no corrections or changes other than a change of address, by visiting www.dmv.pa.gov. Both non-commercial and commercial drivers may renew through the U.S. mail.

Those who renewed their licenses or identifications on or before May 10 still will receive a camera card in the mail and will need to visit a PennDOT Photo License Center to obtain an updated photo. Non-U.S. citizens must also visit a driver’s license center in person to complete a transaction.

PennDOT Press Officer Diego Sandino pointed out that expiration dates on driver’s licenses and identification cards scheduled to expire between March 16 and May 31 have been extended until June 30.
“Camera cards also have been extended,” he said. “You would just have to wait until your nearest licensing center opens up to go get that taken care of.”

Though many license- and registration related tasks can be handled online at www.dmv.pa.gov, one thing customers currently cannot get is a REAL ID. Issuance of REAL ID is currently suspended, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has extended the REAL ID enforcement deadline until October 1, 2021.

Once REAL ID issuance has resumed, customers with a non-REAL ID license can upgrade to a REAL ID. Their new license will include any time remaining on their current one, plus an additional four years; PennDOT said customers won’t lose time for which they’ve already paid. After the initial REAL ID license expires, there is no additional fee –– beyond regular renewal fees.

National Park Service Sites

The National Park Service (NPS) Units of Western Pennsylvania - Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site, Flight 93 National Memorial, Fort Necessity National Battlefield, Friendship Hill National Historic Site and Johnstown Flood National Memorial are increasing recreational access.
The NPS is working service-wide with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. 
Beginning May 15, 2020, the following park units will reopen access to:

Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site

Trails, Picnic Area, Staple Bend Tunnel

Flight 93 National Memorial 

Trails, Tower of Voices, Flight Path, Memorial Plaza, Wall of Names

Fort Necessity National Battlefield

Trails, Fort Grounds and Battlefield

Friendship Hill National Historic Site 

Trails and Grounds

Johnstown Flood National Memorial 

Trails, North and South Abutment, Picnic Area

With public health in mind, visitor centers and restrooms will remain closed, however portalets will be available at all five park units.

The health and safety of employees, partners, volunteers, visitors, and local residents continues to be paramount. The operational approach in the five Western Pennsylvania park units will be to examine each facility function and service provided to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance and will be regularly monitored. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public areas and workspaces are safe and clean.

While these areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy at this time, a return to full operations will be determined with the advice and guidance of public health officials. When recreating, the NPS requests visitors follow CDC guidance, practice Leave No Trace principles, and remember social distancing practices.
