Perkiomen Township is monitoring the situation. For now, we are continuing to follow the guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Symptoms of the COVID-19 can include fever, cough and shortness of breath. The symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Although most cases of COVID-19 have been mild, the illness can range from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill. Individuals most at risk for severe symptoms include elderly and those with pre-existing conditions.

Residents are reminded to:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol- based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover any coughs or sneezes with your elbow, not your hands.
  • Clean surfaces frequently, such as countertops, light switches, cell phones and other frequently touched areas.
  • Contain if you are sick, you should stay home until you are feeling better.

Perkiomen Township was established in 1886 after a court appointed commission split Skippack Township and Perkiomen Township along the Perkiomen Creek. At that time the township was classified as a township of the second-class. Under that classification, a Board of Supervisors was established as the governing body. This body can be made up of either three or five members. In Perkiomen Township’s case the board is made up of five members.
