First Cases of Coronavirus in Pennsylvania

This morning I’m announcing the first two confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Pennsylvania. I want to assure Pennsylvanians that we are prepared for this. There is no need to panic, but we all can and should prepare to do whatever is needed to prevent spread of this virus.

Posted by Governor Tom Wolf on Friday, March 6, 2020

Governor Tom Wolf today held a press conference Friday morning and confirmed the first two presumptive positive cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Pennsylvania. He reminded people that the state is prepared to respond to community spread of this virus.

“We anticipated this very scenario and have been preparing for Pennsylvanians to become impacted by this virus,” Governor Wolf said. “This is not the first rapidly-spreading virus we have faced in our commonwealth and it will not be the last. We are prepared to mitigate the spread of this virus.”

Gov. Wolf’s administration issued a press release with guidelines for people who are not feeling well in addition to further information on the situation.
