Allegheny County has notified the public that we have moved into the “Substantial” category for COVID-19 cases. Effective Friday, August 6, Mt. Lebanon will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by requiring masks for everyone inside all municipal facilities, including the Municipal Building, Public Safety Center, Mt. Lebanon Public Library and indoor Mt. Lebanon recreation facilities. We will continue to monitor available data and will update the policy as necessary.

Beginning Tuesday, June 1, 2021, all Mt. Lebanon facilities and public spaces will reopen following all current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the Pennsylvania Department of Health. At this time, that means vaccinated individuals do not have to wear masks anywhere. Unvaccinated individuals must wear masks indoors, and they must wear mask outdoors if they cannot maintain six feet of separation from people from other households.

The state has indicated it will lift the mask mandate on June 28 or whenever 70 percent of Pennsylvanians have been fully vaccinated—whichever happens first. We will follow those recommendations as well.

Please do not come to any Mt. Lebanon facility or program if you do not feel well. We continue to encourage proper hygiene, including frequent hand washing. We will continue to provide masks and hand sanitizer at our facilities. Please be sensitive to the fact that younger children cannot yet be vaccinated.

Capacity limits for all buildings and facilities will be lifted on June 1. However, the Municipal Building is not yet available for rental or public meetings.

You do not need a reservation to enter the Mt. Lebanon Public Library. For hours and service details go to: mtlebanonlibrary.org/559/Current-Services-Updates

The Mt. Lebanon Public Safety Center, 555 Washington Road, also opens June 1. For public access, go to the rear vestibule. Use the red phone for emergencies and the green phone for non-emergencies. The building is open for all services, including tours, fingerprinting and child safety seat checks.

Mt. Lebanon Recreation Department will follow current CDC and state guidelines, including masking. Unvaccinated people must wear masks indoors, and they must also wear them outdoors unless 6 feet of distance can be maintained from those outside of their household. Fully vaccinated individuals do not have to wear masks indoors or outdoors. Social distancing and frequent handwashing are encouraged. In general, protect yourself and others. Don’t attend programs if you feel sick or are otherwise at risk. These guidelines are subject to change.

Pandemic mitigation will end as we head into summer, with the exception of the continuation of the mask mandate. As a result, the Mt. Lebanon Recreation Department is happy to announce we will be able to operate the swim center with our normal attendance and hours.

What does this mean?

  • You do not need a reservation to enter the pool
  • Starting May 31, admission will not be subject to a pandemic-related cap. As in previous years, pool staff will temporarily halt admission if additional attendance would lead to overcrowding.
  • We will follow current CDC and state guidelines, including masking. Social distancing and frequent handwashing are encouraged. At this point, if you are vaccinated, you do not have to wear a mask outside but unvaccinated individuals must wear one when not in the water, unless 6 feet of distance can be maintained from those outside of your household.
  • We will offer lap swim as usual and one daily open swim session as usual
  • We will update the schedule, rules and hours on our website soon. We just wanted to get the good news out to you!

Pool memberships (season passes) are available online through Thursday, May 20. After that, you must buy the passes in person at the Recreation Center second floor offices through May 29. Hours: Monday and Tuesday (except May 18), 12-2 p.m. and 5-8 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. You must bring picture ID, proof of residency (if purchasing a resident pass), and each member of the family who will use the pass to have a picture taken (unless uploaded to your online account in advance).

Purchase pool passes here.

Mission Accomplished! Over the last year, Neighborhood Aid’s network of volunteers stepped in to make sure vulnerable Dormont and Mt. Lebanon residents had essential items, allowing them to stay safe at home during the quarantine.


Since its inception, Neighborhood Aid answered 388 phone calls for assistance, and its volunteers completed 169 resident tasks, such as making runs to grocery stores, food banks, pharmacies and fulfilling deliveries of masks, laundry, mail and even a few rolls of quarters for laundry. We are eternally grateful to the volunteers who gave their time to help others. Now that we no longer have regular calls for help, we have ended the Neighborhood Aid service. If you should need assistance with pandemic-related issues, you can call 211, or check out our resource guide at www.neighborhoodaid.org.

Many thanks to state Rep. Dan Miller, the Borough of Dormont and the Municipality of Mt. Lebanon for making Neighborhood Aid such a bright spot in so many lives.
