Governor Wolf Tests Positive for COVID-19

On Wednesday, Governor Tom Wolf announced he has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Governor is reported to be feeling in and not showing any symptoms.

The announcement was made in a press release stating,

"During a routine test yesterday, I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms and am feeling well. I am following CDC and Department of Health guidelines. Frances has been tested and, as we await the result, is quarantining at home with me.

I am continuing to serve the commonwealth and performing all of my duties remotely, as many are doing during the pandemic.

As this virus rages, my positive test is a reminder that no one is immune from COVID, that following all precautions as I have done is not a guarantee, but it is what we know to be vital to stopping the spread of the disease and so I ask all Pennsylvanians to wear a mask, stay home as much as possible, socially distance yourself from those not in your household, and, most of all, take care of each other and stay safe.”

Governor Wolf is said to be in isolation at home.
