I have spoken with many constituents and business owners who are concerned and have questions about the COVID-19 Coronavirus.  The situation is fluid and changing on an hour-by-hour basis.  I am in constant contact with the Governor’s office, state Health officials, local elected officials, medical providers, and business owners who have questions and are looking for answers.

 These Internet links provide fact-based, updated information as we negotiate these extraordinary times together.  If you have specific questions about the Coronavirus, I want you to know I am available.  While the Jennersville office is temporarily closed, you can reach us at the regular office phone number, as we have forwarded the phones.  Please do not hesitate to call directly at (610) 869-1602.

Under the leadership of Cheryl Kuhn, the Chamber has robust information and resources for business owners dealing with the challenges presented by the Coronavirus.  Cheryl and I are in daily contact to ensure the latest information is available to our local small business owners.  Their COVID-19 webpage is a very good resource for local small business owners.
