CENTER – As the governor prohibits events with more than 25 people even in the yellow phase of reopening, Rep. Josh Kail (R-Beaver/Washington) was forced to cancel three events: Donuts and Discussion events on Friday, May 22, and Friday, June 5, as well as a REAL ID event on Friday, May 29.

Washington County moved into the yellow phase of reopening on Friday, May 15. Beaver County won’t move into the yellow phase until Friday, May 22.

“Unfortunately, with our counties still barred from gatherings in excess of 25 people, we’re not allowed to host these events. While I hope to hold events later in the summer, Gov. Tom Wolf and his administration haven’t released any information – despite repeated requests – about the metrics a county needs to meet to move to green. At this point, we’re waiting,” Kail said.

Residents are encouraged to contact Kail’s office with any state-related questions or concerns they have by calling 724-728-7655. Kail and his staff continue to serve residents throughout the pandemic.

“I share in the frustration that many residents are feeling because the governor has so much control over our lives,” Kail added. “The representation they usually have in their state legislators has truly been silenced as the governor is making all the rules without considering input from other elected officials. Our government was designed to have checks and balances to avoid any single person having absolute power, but that’s not how it’s working now.”
