BETHLEHEM (Sept 8) – State Senator Lisa Boscola and State Representative Jeannie McNeill announced today in a joint statement below that due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations and the possible impact of contracting COVID on a vulnerable age group that their Senior Fair scheduled for Friday, September 17, 2021 at the Whitehall Mall is postponed.
“It is disappointing that we must postpone this year’s Senior Fair, but it would not be prudent with the recent surge in cases and the impact of the delta variant that we bring a vulnerable population into an indoor event. We believe it is important that we share information with the seniors that we jointly represent and have found our Senior Fairs over the last number of years have done an exceptional job in meeting that goal.”
“However, with nearly 13,0000 additional COVID cases reported over the Labor Day weekend, moving the Senior Fair is the only logical option as our senior and immunocompromised residents are most at risk if contracting COVID. It is our hope that Pennsylvanians continue to get the recommended vaccinations so that we can convene our Senior Fair next spring.”
“In the meantime, seniors and all residents of the 18th Senatorial District and 133rd House District should know that our district offices are open and remain committed to serving their needs.”
