Coronavirus Information Sheet - click to download.With a handful of cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Pennsylvania, and more expected, it’s important that you take precautions to keep you and your family healthy.

Human coronaviruses spread just like the flu or a cold:

  • Through the air by coughing or sneezing;
  • Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands;
  • Touching an object or surface with the virus on it;
  • Occasionally, fecal contamination.

But there are ways you can protect yourself:

  • Cover coughs or sneezes with your elbow. Do not use your hands!
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones, remotes, and other frequently touched items.
  • Contain: if you are sick, stay home until you are feeling better.

You may also want to consider making a home emergency kit, in the event that you’re stuck inside for some time. This may include items like nonperishable food, bottled water, medications, flashlights and batteries, a first aid kit, warm clothing, and supplies for your babies or pets.

Real ID is coming! Info session 3/19, 6pm!

Real ID is coming!

Real ID is coming this year, and the process can be confusing. Beginning October 1, 2020, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, photo ID card, or another form of federally-acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to board a domestic commercial flight or enter a federal building or military installation that requires ID.

To help answer your questions, Representative Sara Innamorato and I are hosting a townhall with PennDOT and the Department of Vital Records.
