EGT Building & COVID-19 News
On Friday, June 26, Chester County moved from the “Yellow” stage to the “Green” stage. As a practical matter, this change does not impact Township operations substantially. Throughout the pandemic, the Township has continued to operate more or less normally, with most administrative work being performed remotely.
There is really no change that residents will see in the “Green” stage is that the Township building is again open to the public, albeit on a limited basis. Residents, contractors and other members of the public are again allowed in the lobby, provided that they wear masks and practice social distancing. Importantly, no more than two people are allowed in the lobby area at any time. Residents dropping off payments or other routine communications are still encouraged to use the drop box, which is checked regularly throughout the day. If you need a receipt, enclose a self-addressed stamped envelop or request one to be emailed to you.
The office hours are: Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
The meeting rooms will continue to be closed to the public, and the Township will continue to use the Zoom platform to conduct public meetings until further notice. Information about calling into these meetings is available on our website.
We would like East Goshen residents to know and understand that the Township is watching the COVID trends in East Goshen and Chester County.
The Township follows the guidelines and protocols dictated by both Governor Wolf’s office and Chester County authorities. The Chester County Health Department (CCHD) has responsibility over the local COVID-19 response. Due to privacy regulations, the Township is not privy to the details regarding hotspots or clusters of the COVID-19 cases within the Township.
Chester County is fortunate to have one of Pennsylvania’s six (6) county health departments. The CCHD has a team of 100+ staff workers that collaborate with community members and organizations to monitor, maintain and improve community health. CCHD remains committed to improving the health of individuals and the county. The Township will continue to work with County officials to monitor and react to this changing situation.
