Delco Alert - April 26, 2020

Hello, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some reminders for the Upper Darby Township community. As you may know, the Pennsylvania Primary was moved to Tuesday, June 2nd. The Township Holiday has also been moved to Tuesday, June 2nd. Trash and recycling will be collected on its regular schedule this week. Please make sure that your trash is placed in a sealed bag and that mattresses are wrapped in plastic. Your cooperation helps protect our sanitation workers and our neighborhoods.

Pennsylvania residents are encouraged to vote by mail in the June 2nd primary. To apply for a mail in ballot, please visit to apply online. Or, you can call 1-877-868-3772 to request a paper application. You must apply by Tuesday, May 26th.

This is a challenging time and I want to express my heartfelt sympathies to those who have lost a loved one to coronavirus and, in general, to those whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic through income loss or not being able to visit with family. My thoughts are with the 341 township residents who have tested positive for the virus and with those first responders and essential employees who, every day, are on the front lines of the fight against coronavirus. Thank you to everyone who is doing their part to help control and contain this virus.

Finally, many of our residents may be experiencing a range of emotions due to fear, isolation, health, and economic circumstances. Delaware County has established a Telehealth Helpline which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call 855-464-9342 to speak with a certified peer specialist or mental health professional.

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.
