PHILADELPHIA, PA − November 12, 2020 − Senator Anthony H. Williams released the following statement on Senate Office Closures Due to COVID-19 Mitigation Measures:
Due to the serious increase in COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and Delaware County in the past several weeks, I have made the decision to temporarily close all of my Senate offices. These closures of in person offices will protect both my constituents and my staff as we all continue to fight the spread of COVID-19.
As someone who did contract this virus myself, I am grateful for my own recovery, but I know that this virus is very real and can have catastrophic consequences. Yesterday, Pennsylvania reported 4,711 cases of COVID-19, and today we saw the highest daily case count since the pandemic began with 5,488 cases.
My offices in Harrisburg, Philadelphia, and Delaware County will all be closed to in person work and constituent services until we can ensure the complete safety of all those who enter our offices.
These offices may be physically closed, but my staff and I are still working tirelessly to assist every constituent in my district with both community issues, and issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. To contact my office for assistance, please call (215) 492-2980, visit senatoranthonywilliams.com or fill out our online contact form here, and we will get back to you as fast as we can.
Please continue to show your friends, family, and community that you care about their health and safety as you practice social distancing, wearing a mask whenever you leave your house, hand washing and sanitizing regularly, and avoiding group gatherings.
I look forward to the day when my offices can reopen safely, and I will continue advocating at the state level for common sense measures to mitigate the spread of this virus, and provide assistance to those who have suffered most under this pandemic.
