Senator Judy Ward (R-30) announced that effective Tuesday, March 17 she will not accept in-person meetings or visitors to the district or Capitol office until further notice.
She noted that while walk-in visits are not accepted at this time, her offices remain open to the citizens of the 30th Senatorial District.
“I am always checking and responding to emails, and we will also be answering phone calls and voicemails,” she said. “All previously scheduled in-person meetings will be provided with the option to reschedule, or have the meeting over the phone.”
Any local residents with a state-related concern or question can contact Ward’s office in Hollidaysburg at 814-695-8386, McConnellsburg at 717-485-3616 or Harrisburg at 717-787-5490 weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
“As frustrating as it is to temporarily suspend in-person meetings, it is in the best interest of the public, especially those who are older or have compromised immune systems, to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19,” she added. “The coronavirus is a serious situation that changes daily. It remains our priority to do what is in the best interest of protecting public health. It is extremely important that during this time that we listen to the advice of the Department of Health, avoid large group events and limit contact when possible. Ward continues to update her social media platforms with the latest information on COVID-19 news as it pertains to the 30th Senatorial District.”
