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.
