A look at some of our favorite Pittsburgh coronavirus signs and how you can share your coronavirus stories with the History Center.
Most of us are working from home, we’re practicing social distancing, many of our favorite businesses are takeout only or closed altogether. But Pittsburghers are creative and there have been signs of encouragement, compassion and kindness popping up all over town.
We’d love to see the signs from your neighborhood. Please tag @verylocalpgh in your photos or send an email to helloPittsburgh@verylocal.com.
Collecting coronavirus signs & social media: Share your story with the History Center
The Heinz History Center is looking to collect stories and materials from Pittsburghers about the local Coronavirus response. They are looking for both physical objects and digital objects – so yes, they want to see your Instagram posts too. You can contact the archivist or submit items here: www.heinzhistorycenter.org/coronavirus.
