🦠CORONAVIRUS GUIDE

Articles, links and information for how to help and find help

By Julie Follansbee Publisher and Editor of Macaroni Kid Johnstown/Laurel Highlands/Altoona Pa March 27, 2020

We're on a Stay at Home Order and School has been delayed for another 2 weeks. 

We're all practicing social distancing hopefully and doing our part to stop the spread and flatten the curve of this pandemic.

A few weeks ago I was scrambling to get together our Easter Event Guide, add fish frys and High School Productions to our calendar and was amazed at the number of activities and events that our community offers local families between Ligonier and Altoona.This week I'm writing "CANCELLED or POSTPONED" in front of many of them. Why not just delete? I don't know...hoping in the future that they can be rescheduled.

Now my focus is adding virtual events-music, art and skills that you can watch with the family.

WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER SO LET'S MAKE IT A GOOD EXPERIENCE FOR OUR KIDS. WE'VE GOT A FEW ARTICLES TO HELP GUIDE YOU
