Buckingham Township Press Release - March 24, 2020, 2pm

PRESS RELEASE

March 24, 2020

Pennsylvania Governor Wolf issued a Stay At Home order on 3/23. The order requires residents to

“…stay at home except as needed to access, support, or provide life sustaining business, emergency, or government services...

Individuals leaving their home or place of residence to access, support, or provide life sustaining services for themselves, another person, or a pet must employ social distancing practices as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Individuals are permitted to engage in outdoor activities; however, gatherings of individuals outside of the home are generally prohibited except as may be required to access, support or provide life sustaining services as outlined above…”

According to the Governor’s website: “Those businesses requesting clarification on whether they are defined as life-sustaining should check this list, email the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) customer service resource account at ra-dcedcs@pa.gov, or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH and select option 1 to reach DCED staff. For businesses that determine from the list that they are non-life sustaining, there is a procedure to request a waiver.

Please know that the Township CANNOT grant waivers to the Governor’s order regarding business classifications (life sustaining) or to allow construction activities to continue in violation of the order. Any Waivers must be approved at the State level. The current state waiver request form is available at:  https://expressforms.pa.gov/apps/pa/DCED/Waiver-process-keeping-physical-locations-open

ALL essential services such as the Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Services, and the Water and Wastewater Department continue normal operations. Township officials are coordinating planning and response measures with the input and guidance from the Bucks County Health Department, Bucks County Emergency Management, and the CDC protocols.

Township Administrative Offices remain closed through March 27th. At that time, the Supervisors will reassess the situation.

The Board of Supervisors will briefly meet March 25th at 7:30pm for their Regular Business meeting as scheduled. The agenda is posted on the website. The Board of Supervisor’s Work Session is canceled.  If the public wishes to submit public comment or a comment on the agenda electronically they can do so at contact@buckinghampa.org.

All Township trails, walkways, and open space remain OPEN but please remember to practice the CDC guidelines for social distancing. Playground equipment, restrooms, courts, and pavilions in our Township parks are CLOSED. All Township fields are CLOSED to groups.
