The Borough of West Reading wants to reassure the residents and businesses about the pandemic plans we have in place. First, it’s important for everyone to remain calm, follow the guidelines from the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html and let facts rule the moment.
The Borough has a pandemic response plan in place and we have contingency plans for all essential services for a multitude of scenarios. We have succession plans in place and are currently working with our municipal neighbors to share resources if needed. All essential services will continue and we will be using multiple platforms to communicate with residents and businesses during this time.
