Delco Alert - April 22, 2020

Hello, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with a message for the Upper Darby Township community.

I want to offer my sympathies to those who have lost a loved one to coronavirus. It is distressing to hear of the continued rise in new cases and fatalities in our Township and I want to thank our health care workers, first responders, and those working in life sustaining businesses for their hard work to keep our community going.

The Governor has extended the Stay At Home order to May 8th. Thank you to those who are staying home which protects the vulnerable, reduces the spread of this disease, and keeps more families from experiencing the grief of losing a loved one to the coronavirus.

Today is Earth Day and I would like to ask residents to do their part to protect our environment. The environment is not only parks, creeks and open spaces - it is our neighborhoods, streets, sidewalks and yards.

  • Please dispose of masks and gloves properly. Throwing them on the ground or leaving them in shopping carts increases the risk of spreading coronavirus and you’re making someone else deal with it.
  • Pick up after your dog (or dogs). It’s common courtesy. And, just like with the discarded gloves and masks, you’re making someone else deal with it.
  • Make sure your trash is in sealed bags in a garbage can. If you’re tossing out a mattress, make sure it is wrapped up in plastic.
These measures protect our sanitation workers and keep trash and other debris from ending up in stormwater drains, streets, sidewalks and yards.

Thank you for doing your part to protect the environment and our community. It will be great to look back on this and remember what we’ve done to support each other.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer reminding everyone to stay calm, stay safe, stay home and if you have to go out, stay six feet apart. Thank you.
