– Rep. Keith Gillespie (R-Hellam) today announced that the governor has issued a stay-at-home order for York County. York County is one of 19 counties now on the list.
The order becomes active on Friday, March 27, at 8 p.m. and lasts through April 6. Under this order, individuals must stay at home except to perform certain essential activities – including tasks to maintain health and safety, obtain supplies for the household, care for a family member or pet, and perform work at a life-sustaining business.
“There is no doubt that these are difficult times for us all, and a stay-at-home order is a drastic step,” said Gillespie. “The most important thing for us now is to do all we can to limit the spread of coronavirus and flatten the curve. Though our district office will be closed to walk-in traffic, we will continue to answer your calls from a remote location.”
