NEW TRIPOLI – Following the recommendations of state public health officials and in compliance with Gov. Tom Wolf’s coronavirus mitigation strategies, state Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks) today announced he is postponing the meet and greet event previously scheduled for Thursday, March 26.

“I feel it’s important to lead by example, so we are postponing the event in accordance with the guidance of state health officials and the governor,” Day said. “We’re being abundantly cautious and encourage residents in our district to do the same.”

Day previously scheduled the meet and greet event to take place Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at the Goodwill Fire Company No. 1 of Trexlertown located at 7723 Hamilton Blvd.

Wolf recently announced the mandatory closing of all non-life-sustaining businesses in the Commonwealth and health officials have cautioned against gathering in large groups as Pennsylvania and the nation continue with coronavirus mitigation measures.

Day encourages residents to visit his Facebook page at and his website at for information about the event once it is rescheduled.

He also encourages residents to follow him on Facebook and visit his website for valuable information related to the coronavirus. Day specifically created a special coronavirus resources page on his website at with helpful tools and information for parents, students, employers, workers and other Pennsylvanians.

Day and his staff are continuing to provide help for local residents out of their New Tripoli district office. Due to public health officials’ calls for limited person-to-person interaction and the use of “social distancing,” Day and his staff are asking residents to either call the office at 610-760-7082 or submit requests through his website at rather than visiting the office in person.

“We look forward to the day when these precautionary measures are no longer necessary,” Day said. “In the meantime, the health and safety of my staff and the residents of the 187th District who we are privileged to serve will remain our top priorities.”

Due to the inability to forecast the effectiveness of coronavirus mitigation efforts, Day is not able at the present time to predict when the meet and greet will be rescheduled.
