Sappey postpones upcoming events and in-person constituent services amidst COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak
KENNETT SQUARE, March 13 – State Rep. Christina Sappey, D-Chester, today announced that, under the advisement of public health officials, she is postponing her upcoming veterans’ luncheon scheduled for March 20, and sustainable living forum scheduled for April 2 to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
“Two of our neighboring counties, Delaware and Montgomery, have presumptive positive cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus, so it’s important to ensure the health and safety of Chester County residents,” Sappey said. “These events will be rescheduled to a later date.”
Additionally, Sappey’s district office will be closed to the public for the time being. The office will remain operational with staff available by phone and email, but no in-person services or appointments are being held until further notice.
While there are currently no presumptive positive cases of the virus in Chester County, Sappey said that these are precautionary measures to help keep constituents and staff safe.
Sappey added that while her office will temporarily not welcome visitors, she encourages constituents to contact her by phone at 484-200-8264 or email at RepSappey@pahouse.net for assistance with state-related matters.
The public can receive current information regarding COVID-19 coronavirus by contacting the Pennsylvania Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH.
