Press Release

WASHINGTON—Today, in response to increased public health concerns surrounding the spread of the novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) announced the measures his office will be taking to ensure the safety of his staff and the public.

“We must ensure that all of us are doing anything we can to prevent further spread of this virus and keep ourselves and the most vulnerable in our communities safe,” said O’Halleran. “My staff will continue working normal hours, both in and out of the office, to ensure Arizona families are assisted with any questions and concerns they may have.”

Following reports of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in a Capitol Hill office, employees in O’Halleran’s Washington, DC office will be tele-working the week of March 16 - 20 as a precautionary measure. Phone calls to O’Halleran’s Washington office will be re-directed to his district offices during this tele-work period. The U.S. Capitol grounds have been restricted to members and staff only until April 1.

O’Halleran’s offices in Casa Grande, Flagstaff, and NW Tucson will remain open and will maintain current hours, but all scheduled meetings will be moved to phone or video conference. No walk-in meetings will be taken. Staff in all offices have been instructed to stay home and seek medical care if they are sick.

Furthermore, all of O’Halleran’s mobile office hours have been suspended for the month of March.

With questions or concerns, constituents can contact any of O’Halleran’s three Arizona offices. Contact information is available here.
