JHF Leads Community COVID-19 Public Service Announcements
To promote mask-wearing in the Pittsburgh community, the Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) initiated a partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers to create a public-facing lawn sign campaign. Working with members of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Contact Tracing Consortium, Pittsburgh-area universities, and other community partners, JHF is funding the production and distribution of the Steelers lawn signs to remind the public of the importance of mask-wearing during the pandemic. Despite the rollout of vaccines, scientists advise for continued mask-wearing at least into the summer. Giant Eagle has agreed to adapt the campaign and run a parallel effort within their stores to further encourage mask-wearing. If your organization is interested in helping to post or distribute the Steelers Winners Wear Masks lawn signs, please email email@example.com for more information.
JHF is leading the development of a communications campaign to stop the spread of COVID-19 through work with the Southwestern Pennsylvania Contact Tracing Consortium and closely collaborating with the PA Department of Health. JHF developed plain language infographics and social media content about contact tracing, isolation, quarantine, and the COVID Alert PA app for the Consortium's 100+ members to share in their communities. JHF staff will lead a new sub-committee with Consortium members to continue to expand the communications campaign.
