Folks, the COVID-19 situation is evolving very quickly and I want you to have easy access to the local, state and federal resources you may need in the coming weeks. Find links to all of them here: I’ll update this page regularly, and if there’s anything that you think is missing, please let me know.

My district offices will still be providing constituent services; however, we are not open to visitors at this time. Please call 412-241-6690.

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.

Vote By Mail

Vote By MailWe can expect great uncertainty in most aspects of public life in the coming weeks – that includes our primary election. At this point, it is still scheduled to continue as planned on April 28. To ensure that you’re able to vote, consider requesting a mail-in ballot this year.  

Act 77 of 2019 instituted the mail in balloting process here in Pennsylvania and this year, it might be the easiest and safest way to cast your vote. The deadline to apply for a mail in ballot is April 21, 2020. 

You have two options to apply for a mail in ballot: online or by mail. Registered voters can apply for a mail-in ballot online with a valid PA driver's license or photo I.D. from the PA Department of Transportation (PennDOT). 

Apply online here: 

The deadline to return your voted mail-in or absentee ballot is 8 p.m. on election day (April 28).

2020 Census

Census2020You may have recently received, or are about to receive, information about the 2020 census. You can complete the census by mail, or you can use your unique census ID to complete the form online.

This would be a perfect activity while you practice social distancing. 

For more information on the census and how it will proceed during the virus, check out this site from the state:
