HARRISBURG- The State Representatives from Bucks County have come together to release the following joint statement regarding the Coronavirus:

As our neighboring county, Montgomery County, moves to the mitigation phase to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 Virus, we as your State Representatives know our constituents are concerned. It is very important for all of us to take the coronavirus seriously and to implement common-sense measures to prevent illness. However, we need to stay calm while exercising caution in our daily lives.

We have had daily conference calls to keep us up to date. Additionally, Secretary of Health Dr. Levine has conducted daily public press conferences. We, both State Reps. and Senators, will head to Harrisburg on Monday to work with Gov. Tom Wolf and our respective legislative leaders on the items they have identified as necessary to assist Pennsylvania in this time of need.

We will work together with our county offices and local school districts to assure that the most up-to-date information is being shared and all appropriate protocols are being met.

Most importantly, we are working together as we focus on the health and wellbeing of our community.

In the meantime, if you have medical questions, the PA Department of Health has set up a Hotline for calls. Call 1-877-PA-HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) Online updates are here.

If you need anything from any of us, please call or email our offices.

“Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have heard from many of our constituents with questions on everything from medical treatment to school safety,” Thomas said. “Know that when we return to Harrisburg I will share these concerns with my colleagues as we unify behind solutions that we keep our families safer from this deadly virus.”
