LH Mayor declares Essential Workers Week

LOCK HAVEN — Mayor Joel Long has declared this week Essential Workers and Volunteers Week to honor those on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak and those who are helping others during this difficult time.

“I encourage everyone to thank an essential worker in our community’s health, police, fire and essential public works when you come in necessary contact with them, and to make every effort to keep all in our community safe,” Long said.

Long encouraged residents to continue to “keep proper social distancing, show respect for all, shop alone when possible, follow the guidelines put in place by your government.”

“Do not risk increasing the burden on our emergency services, help those you can, and do not be embarassed to ask for help if you need,” he continued.

The proclamation was signed signed on Saturday due to council not meeting in the immediate future, Long said.
