Gov. Wolf Visits WellSpan York Hospital, Thanks Staff, Discusses Mask-wearing Benefits

With a recent rise in COVID cases and subsequent additional targeted mitigation efforts put in place, Governor Tom Wolf visited WellSpan York Hospital to thank staff and emphasize why mask-wearing and social distancing are necessary and effective to fight the spread of COVID-19.

"The best way to prevent our loved ones and ourselves from suffering from COVID-19 is to take preventive measures to stop the spread," Gov. Wolf said. "That's why Dr. Levine and I made the decision to require Pennsylvanians to wear a mask in public and it's why more and more national companies are requiring you to wear a mask when you enter their businesses. They want their employees to stay safe, and they want you to stay safe."
