DALLAS – Rep. Karen Boback (R-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming) today announced that, effective immediately, her district offices in Dallas and Tunkhannock will suspend walk-in constituent services, outreach and satellite hours until further notice.

Boback’s staff will still be available to assist residents over the telephone or online with any state-related matter.

“Out of concern for my constituents and staff regarding the coronavirus, I have chosen to put on hold any services that would risk disease transmission,” said Boback. “My top concern is for the wellbeing of my constituents, many of whom are elderly and therefore particularly vulnerable to this virus.”

“With that in mind, we will restrict walk-in visits to our office at this time, with the hope that constituents will continue to reach out through the available channels with any concerns they have. My staff and I are prepared to assist local residents in this difficult time and we remain optimistic that regular services will resume in the near future.”
