Gov Wolf asks all PA residents to wear a mask

Harrisburg-Today Gov Wolf asked all Pennsylvania residents to wear a cloth or homemade mask when they leave their homes. Secretary of Health Dr, Rachel Levine added that the N95 masks should be reserved for health care workers. “Today I’m asking all Pennsylvanians to wear a mask anytime you leave your house, masks help prevent people from sharing illnesses,” said Wolf. He also added, that they are not foolproof, and we need to ask ourselves if we really need to leave our house, but wearing a mask will help us cut down the possibility that we might be infecting an innocent bystander. Universal masking is expected to be recommended by the CDC shortly, noted Wolf.
