Area municipalities are closing their doors due to the coronavirus.

The Herald was able to collect information from the following municipalities:


In response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s order of a statewide shutdown as the number of coronavirus cases in Pennsylvania continues to grow, the Martinsburg Municipal Building is restricting visitors.

Individuals who must come to the office are required to ring the door bell before entering as the doors will be locked. Personnel will be on site as usual and will be available to answer phone calls.

Payments of water and sewer bills and taxes should be mailed or dropped off through the outside drop box next to the municipal office door for at least the next two weeks or until further notice.

“As always you can contact the borough office [793-3213] if you have any questions or concerns and we will do our best to answer them,” Richard Brantner Jr. borough manager, said.

Brantner said the police department will operate as normal. If you must stop at the office, ring the doorbell. You can also contact us by telephone at (814) 793-2838 or through the dispatch center at (814) 940-5950. If it is an emergency, call 911.

M. Jane Staily, the borough’s tax collector, there will be no walk-in tax payments for the next two weeks or until further notice in response to Gov. Wolf’s state-wide shut down for all non-essential business as the number of coronavirus cases in Pennsylvania continues to grow.

Payments may be mailed or placed in the drop box located beside the borough’s office door.
