argall tests negative

State Sen. Dave Argall announced Thursday he’s tested negative for COVID-19.

Argall had been quarantining after it was revealed that Sen. Doug Mastriano had tested positive.

Mastriano and Argall sat right next to each other for several hours at a hearing of the PA Senate Majority Policy Committee in Gettysburg on the day before Thanksgiving.

Soon after that hearing, Mastriano learned that he was positive for the coronavirus.

But on Thursday, Argall announced he hadn’t acquired the virus.

Argall’s offices – with the exception of the one in Hamburg – will remain open. In a statement from Argall’s office, it reads:

“Staff will continue to follow Senate guidelines regarding cleaning, social distancing and wearing masks.

“Whenever possible, constituents are urged to contact the Senator’s office by phone or email rather than in-person visits, due to the ongoing pandemic. His offices can assist with any state government related issue, including unemployment compensation, PennDOT, birth certificates, award citations, and questions regarding legislation.”
