Governor Wolf has renewed the disaster declaration again for another 90 days. Evidently there are still signs of life in Pennsylvania’s economy and the governor wants to stamp them out.
…the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be of such magnitude or severity that emergency action is necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of affected citizens in Pennsylvania.
Our compliant local news media will back him up, too. He’s also continuing his restrictions on bars and restaurants. Perhaps the governor thinks nursing home residents are getting the virus from wild COVID parties held at local diners and pubs.
This is raw politics at its worst. Remember, it’s all about the upcoming election, nothing else.
