Monthly County Covid-19 Response Updates

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, CFWC and the United Way of Southwestern PA began hosting monthly calls to provide the most up-to-date information regarding COVID and its impact on Westmoreland County.  Calls were held on the second Thursday of every month for the past 2 1/2 years.  At this time, the calls have concluded and there are no further meetings scheduled.

The call scheduled for July 14 has been cancelled due to the county human services fair occurring the same day.
