Reading, March 16, 2020 − In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, beginning Tuesday, March 17, State Sen. Judy Schwank’s district office at 210 George Street will be closed to the public and will instead serve constituents by e-mail, phone and fax.

“This measure is out of an abundance of caution,” Schwank said. “As you are able, please avoid large gatherings and stay home if you are feeling sick.”

To reach Schwank’s office during business hours (Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.), e-mail; call 610-929-2151; or send a fax to 610-929-2576. 

As the Pennsylvania Capitol Complex is closed for the next 14 days, Schwank’s Harrisburg office is also closed during that time.

Additionally, in adhering to the CDC’s recent recommendation to avoid gatherings of more than 50 people, Schwank’s Earth Day Celebration scheduled for Saturday, April 18, at Third and Spruce Recreation Center in Reading is cancelled, as is a Coffee with Constituents event on Wednesday, April 15, at Airport Diner in Kutztown.
