HARRISBURG – Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin/Lebanon) today announced that the governor has issued a stay-at-home order for Dauphin County. Dauphin County is one of 26 counties now on the list.
The order becomes active on Monday, March 30, at 8 p.m. and lasts until April 30. Under this order, individuals must stay at home except to perform certain essential activities – including tasks to maintain health and safety, obtain supplies for the household, care for a family member or pet, and perform work at a life-sustaining business.
“These are certainly scary and difficult times for all of us as the COVID-19 virus becomes increasingly present in Pennsylvania,” said Helm. “The most important thing we can do is to follow these guidelines to reduce the rate of infection as much as we can. Though we will be spending the next month apart, we will get through this together.”
Those who wish to contact Helm’s district offices for any state-related issues should do so by calling 717-651-0100 (Susquehanna Township) or 717-692-0833 (Millersburg) or visiting her website at RepHelm.com/contact
On Monday, March 23, the governor issued the first stay-at-home order to seven Pennsylvania counties. In the days since, 19 more counties have been added, including Dauphin County. More information on what the order means can be found on the governor’s website
