Harrisburg — In order to help contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and protect the health and safety of local residents and office staff, Senator John DiSanto (Dauphin/Perry) announced today that his New Bloomfield office will be temporarily closed for in-person meetings, effective Monday, March 16. Also, all mobile outreach office hours will be discontinued until further notice. Governor Wolf has also closed the State Capitol to the public.
The 2019 novel COVID-19 coronavirus is a new virus that causes respiratory illness and can spread from person-to-person. This virus was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. Symptoms 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. Reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying.
Although the physical offices will be closed to visitors, DiSanto said he and his staff will still be available to respond to emails, web contacts and phone messages.
