Gov. Tom Wolf said during a phone conference Thursday that Pennsylvania’s ‘Stay at Home’ order will not be extended to mid-May despite rumors circulating on the internet, Your Content can report. What’s more, the Pennsylvania Department of Health confirmed that there are 1,245 additional positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 27,735 as of Apr. 16.

When asked if he would follow New York Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Stay at Home’ Extension: “I don’t have any plans along those lines yet, again, that’s New York and he has to make decisions for whats best for New York,” Gov. Wolf said. “I will look for whats best for Pennsylvania, I understand and appreciate his extension to May 15th, but I have no plan and made no decision along those lines for Pennsylvania yet.”

There are 113,735 patients who have tested negative to date, according to state health officials.

“COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to rise in Pennsylvania, and even though the daily increases are not exponential, now is not the time to become complacent,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “We must continue to stay home to protect ourselves, our families, our community. If you must go out, please make as few trips as possible and wear a mask to protect not only yourself, but other people as well. We need all Pennsylvanians to continue to heed these efforts to protect our vulnerable Pennsylvanians, our health care workers and frontline responders.”
