PITTSBURG, KS – On Monday, March 16, 2020, Pittsburg City Manager Daron Hall released the following statement on the city’s response to the COVID-19 coronavirus:
“The City of Pittsburg is taking proactive measures to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and protect our community from exposure. Our partners at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE), the Crawford County Health Department (CCHD) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are providing us with clear direction for managing key aspects of our lives. I urge each citizen to take this situation seriously, while remaining calm and acting in a decent, respectful, and compassionate manner towards one another.
“We are taking steps to continue to provide critical city services and support to our local residents, their families and Pittsburg’s business community. Those in our service and hospitality industries rely on tips and wages to support themselves and their families. If you and your family are healthy, it’s a great time to order delivery and pick up services from our local restaurants, and order online from our local retail stores.
“In the meantime, please know that the City of Pittsburg will remain open, while emphasizing the safety of our employees. Our number one responsibility is the safety and wellbeing of our citizens and staff. We continue to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing emergency and utility services around the clock for you.

“In your service,
Pittsburg City Manager”
