Tips and Resources from Congresswoman Scanlon

Posted by Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon on April 14, 2020

The acts of kindness from our neighbors and the bravery of our essential workers have filled me with hope as we deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

I have been working closely with my colleagues in the House, Governor Wolf, and our incredible public health experts to ensure that every family has the support they need and to bring necessary resources to our region.

I also wanted to share several resources and some reminders you might find useful.

  • The best way we can fight this together is by practicing social distancing.
  • Stay at home and only leave when you have a critical need.
  • Thoroughly wash your hands for 20 seconds and avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and face.
  • Governor Wolf released an advisory to wear a mask if you leave your home.
  • If you are symptomatic, call your primary care doctor first — if you don’t have one, please call 1-877-PA-HEALTH. If you are having trouble breathing, dial 911.
