East Stroudsburg. This week, state Rep. Rosemary M. Brown’s (R-Monroe/Pike) announced that her husband, Joe Brown, tested positive for COVID-19. Upon the development of symptoms, the immediate Brown family has quarantined and is consulting with their family doctor regularly. Brown said her husband remains the only family member who is symptomatic. “I believe honesty, transparency and personal responsibility are all traits we should display, but especially during these tumultuous times where our actions could have drastic impacts on the surrounding community,” said Brown, who will be closing her district office, located at 143 Seven Bridge Road in East Stroudsburg, for two weeks “out of an abundance of caution.” “I have been a proponent of individual accountability, personal discipline and caution since the beginning of this health crisis, and plan to act in accordance with those sentiments through my personal experiences. While we are not obligated to disclose my husband’s health, due to my public position we have chosen to communicate openly.” Brown’s district office will continue to provide constituent services via phone, email and virtual meetings as it did throughout the lockdown. The district office has been open to the public since mid-June and requires masking or face shields, regular sanitation and social distancing.
