UNIONTOWN – As more information becomes available and the number of Pennsylvanians impacted by coronavirus continues to grow, Rep. Matthew Dowling (R-Fayette/Somerset) decided that his offices will remain closed to visitors until at least Monday, March 30, to protect residents and his employees.

The office will continue to serve residents via phone at 724-438-6100 and online at Employees will still report to work, but visitors will not be permitted.

Satellite offices will also be closed. Reopening the offices will be considered on Friday, March 27, for the week of March 30.

“While no cases were reported in the district as of this morning, it’s clear that this virus moves quickly. Since people can carry it without ever showing symptoms, it’s highly likely that COVID-19 is already in our area,” Dowling said. “We need to be smart now so what we’re experiencing now doesn’t worsen.”

Cancellations of other planned events will be evaluated as the situation develops.
