Washington D.C.—Congressman Joe Neguse announced Friday that his Fort Collins, Boulder and Washington, DC offices will be rescheduling all public, in-person town-halls and similar events through the March 16th district work period in order to help avoid and prevent any potential spread of the Coronavirus. Neguse’s congressional and district staff will be teleworking for the immediate future, and will re-evaluate this policy on a weekly basis. Constituent advocates will continue to be available via phone and email to handle constituent casework.

“We are closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus throughout the 2nd district and throughout Colorado and we are in constant communication with local, state and public health officials to coordinate response and assist where we are able,” said Congressman Joe Neguse. “Our office will continue to be available and responsive to local and legislative needs throughout this crisis.”

Congressman Neguse will host a telephone town hall on Wednesday March 18th with local public health officials to help answer constituent questions about the virus, basic safety measures, and state and local efforts to address the outbreak. 

As of Thursday, March 12th the United States Capitol and House and Senate Office Buildings have been closed to public visitors and all tours have been suspended through April 1st. For more information about Capitol tours, or to reschedule a visit, email Max Coker at Max.Coker@mail.house.gov
