“This year, too, the procedures will directly address ways of minimizing the spread of coronavirus. We recommend people at risk to visit the markets during the first hour of operation, when the crowd tends to be lower,” said Brian Katzen, City Manager of Pittsburgh Office of Special Events. “For a second year our policy will be no lingering, no sampling, no pets on site. In addition, no food is prepared on site, although it is prepackaged to be enjoyed elsewhere. “
