Due to rising COVID-19 case counts and the need to expand contact tracing notifications, the Allentown Health Bureau is extending the licenses of child-care facilities and restaurants. Licenses expiring in November and December 2020 and January 2021 are being extended to March 31, 2021.
The Bureau reminds those establishments to follow state directives on mask wearing, capacity limits and social distancing.
The Bureau has also suspended routine STD testing and is treating city residents who have tested positive for an STD by appointment only at this time. Those in need of treatment may call 610-437-7760 for an appointment.
