On Thursday, Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) will host a tele-town hall with local experts to answer questions about COVID-19 and discuss steps federal, state and local officials are taking to protect Virginia communities and provide relief to the economic disruptions caused by the crisis.

“As health experts urge social distancing measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus in Virginia and across the country, we cannot gamble on the livelihoods of working Virginians and small business owners grappling with keeping food on their tables and providing for their families,” McEachin said. “I look forward to hearing from my constituents and directly connecting them with the resources they need to successfully navigate this crisis.”

The tele-town hall will be from 6:30-7:30 p.m. To dial into the town hall, call 877-229-8493, then enter 119336 when prompted for a PIN.

The Fourth Congressional District includes all of Southampton County, as well as the counties of Sussex, Greensville, Surry, Prince George, Charles City and part of Chesterfield; as well as the cities of Emporia, Petersburg, Colonial Heights, Hopewell, Richmond and parts of Suffolk and Chesapeake.
