Wolf Tests Positive for COVID-19

Gov. Tom Wolf has tested positive for COVID-19. 

Wolf’s office issued a statement on Wednesday afternoon announcing that he tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday and is in isolation at home. 

“During a routine test yesterday, I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms and am feeling well,” Wolf said in a statement. “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,” Wolf continued. 

Wolf continued in his statement to remind those that “no one is immune from COVID” and urged everyone to continue to follow all precautions. 

“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,” Wolf said. 

Earlier this week, state Rep. Mike Reese (R-Westmoreland) announced that he tested positive for COVID-19, making the Westmoreland County Republican the ninth member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly to test positive for COVID-19.

    He’s either not adhering to his policies or the masks aren’t working

    This is God’s retribution for Wolf’s Corrupt vote today to support that LNG export facility. He is one sick Fossil Fuel wh0re, and the world won’t miss him if the Covid takes him off.

    #FakeNews.
    This is all part of an elaborate conspiracy by aliens to land on our flat earth. Trump told me all of it.

    You want crazy? Go look at Fetterman. That alopecia struck sasquatch thinks Weed is the most important thing in the world right now.

    Mastriano 2022.

    But if Wolf had been GOP, then he’d keep quiet and keep infecting people as going selfishly on his way. Glad he is a Dem and sane.

      I did not know the Covid is by political party. Hope for his quick recovery and will gain better understanding through this experience.

      SANE??? After he voted to allow that LNG export facility? Stop kissing Corporate backside.
