West Manchester Township will close its municipal offices to walk-in customers for two weeks as coronavirus concerns continue to shutter schools and local governments.

The township will prohibit all residents from walking into its administrative office, police department and tax collector's office from Monday until March 27, according to a Friday news release.

The announcement came hours after state officials announced that there were 33 total coronavirus cases in the state.
