Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf revealed Wednesday that he’s got COVID-19.
Wolf announced he was positive in a statement released by his office Wednesday. He also echoed that statement on social media.
The governor said a routine test for COVID revealed he was positive for the disease caused by a coronavirus infection. Wolf said he’s not feeling any symptoms.
“I have no symptoms and am feeling well. I am following CDC and Department of Health guidelines,” Wolf says.
First Lady Frances Wolf awaits the result of her test. In the meantime, the Wolfs are isolating at home.
The governor says despite the positive test result, he’s maintaining the duties of the office and working remotely.
“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 says.
