– House State Government Committee Chairman Seth Grove (R-York) is quarantining at home after he developed COVID-19-like-symptoms. He issued the following statement:
“I began suffering from COVID-19-like symptoms on Wednesday and started immediately self-quarantining. I haven’t been in the district office since Tuesday, or in the Capitol since Friday. While I await my test results, I will continue to quarantine at home.
“Since I’m in quarantine, I will not be able to lead today’s State Government Committee hearing on Pennsylvania’s election process. Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) will serve as acting-chairman.
“Understanding COVID-19 could cause instances such as this, I increased the number of subcommittee chairs this session so leadership roles can be quickly filled. Another measure the committee has effectively utilized is virtual participation by both committee members and testifiers. Both initiatives will ensure the important work the committee is undertaking will continue without interruption.”
