Street cleaning has now resumed in Pittsburgh, but the city is not ticketing for parking violations.

Tim McNulty, spokesperson for Mayor Bill Peduto's office, said in an email that "there are still too many people working from home and needing to leave cars on streets."

He says enforcement will resume at some point but did not specify a date. The Pittsburgh Parking Authority announced they will resume enforcement of parking meters this week.

Worried about moving your car for street sweeping during the COVID-19 isolation period? No need.

Today, the City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works announced that street sweeping, which was set to begin Wed., April 1, is being postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 virus.

A press release states that the decision was made due to “residents staying home and parking enforcement being suspended to help fight against the pandemic.”

It goes on to say that catch basin cleaning will still be performed to “help with protections against weather-related events.”

So keep that car where it is, stay inside, and wash your hands.
