Hill-Evans applauds York County residents for determination in helping county move to yellow phase of reopening

YORK, May 15 – On the heels of Gov. Tom Wolf’s announcement that York County will move to the yellow phase of the reopening process on Friday, May 22, state Rep. Carol Hill-Evans, D-York, thanked the 95th District and all York County residents for their determination and dedication in helping slow the spread of COVID-19.

“It’s a tremendous honor to represent the residents of the 95th Legislative District and I thank them and all York County residents. We have followed the strong leadership of our top state officials, County commissioners, and municipal officials in practicing social distancing and doing our part to help reopen our economy safely. Our entire county has shown a willingness to take the hard steps to protect ourselves and our communities by working together and doing what we know to be right. 

“Our residents deserve a tremendous amount of credit for following the science and data, as well as the advice of our health experts throughout this pandemic. I fully understand the frustration and anxiety this situation has brought. Now we must all remain steadfast. Our adherence to the recommendations is how we successfully flattened the curve. Adherence is how we’ll successfully move to the next phase. During the coming week, our businesses will be making arrangements to safely reopen and put protections in place to ensure employees and customers can safely return.

“As we move forward into our new normal, I urge everyone to continue the mitigation efforts that are in place, such as frequently washing our hands and wearing facemasks when in public. Together, we can continue to help our district and our county heal, recover, and emerge from this pandemic stronger than before.”
