Governor Tom Wolf announced Wednesday afternoon that a routine test Tuesday indicated he is positive for Covid-19.
Wolf said he is in isolation in his home and is currently asymptomatic.
In accordance with CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines, Wolf is continuing his "duties remotely, as many are doing during the pandemic," he said in a statement.
Wolf's wife, Frances, has also been tested and will be quarantining with the governor until her results come in.
"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," said Wolf in the statement, reiterating his administration's call to slow the spread of the virus.
"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.”
