HARRISBURG, Pa – Governor Tom Wolf said Wednesday he is showing a positive result for COVID-19 and is staying at home in isolation, the governor’s office said in a press release.
The governor made the following statement:
“During yesterday’s routine test, I found COVID-19 positive. I have no symptoms and I feel good. I follow the guidelines of the CDC and the Department of Health. Frances has been tested and as we await the result, he will be quarantined with me at home.
“I will continue to serve the community and perform all my duties remotely, as many do at the time of the epidemic.
“Because this virus is furious, my positive test reminds me that no one is protected from COVID, that following all the precautions I did is not a guarantee, but we know it is vital in stopping the spread of the disease, and that is why I ask all Pennsylvaniaans to to wear a mask as much as possible to stay at home, to socially distance themselves from those outside the household, and above all to take care of each other and stay safe.
During yesterday’s routine test, I proved positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, I feel good and I am isolated at home. I follow the guidelines of the CDC and the Department of Health. Frances has been tested and as we await the result, he will be quarantined with me at home.
