REOPENING:

County officials have added a call center service for business and resident questions on reopening guidelines and practices.  The Restore Chester County call center number is 610-344-6225 and hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Messages left out-of-hours will receive a reply the next business day.  The “contact us” email option on the RestoreChesterCounty.org website remains operational for all questions, and is monitored seven days a week.

We encourage our Chamber members to join our WCCCC Facebook group to share concerns, support,  changes in service and general community engagement during this time.
