Gov. Wolf asks all Pennsylvanians to wear masks as coronavirus death toll tops 100, 6abc News, 3 April 2020
Gov. Tom Wolf, noting the federal government is readying guidance on the wearing of masks, urged Pennsylvanians to make their own and wear them when they go to the grocery store, pharmacy and other places where people congregate.
“Wearing a mask will help us cut down the possibility that we might be infecting an innocent bystander, like that grocery store cashier, the pharmacist, or someone stocking shelves,” he said in a video news conference. “These folks are keeping us alive by getting us the supplies we need. We owe it to them to do everything we can to keep them safe. Right now, that means wearing a mask.”
Did I say how angry I am about this? I am angry. It should have been done months ago. Instead the Surgeon General was telling us, “[Masks] are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus.” At least we can wear a scarf, which our President said was better than a mask.
