The Wolf Administration stresses the role Pennsylvanians play in helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19:

Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
Cover any coughs or sneezes with your elbow, not your hands.
Clean surfaces frequently.
Stay home to avoid spreading COVID-19, especially if you are unwell.

They need to make it a little more serious in coudersport pa cause nobody listens nobody's staying at home everyone is out in the stores like nothing is going on. It's unreal. We need to only have a few people at a time in a store not the whole parking lot filled with customers.

Another thing that isn't helping is pretty much every factory, "essential" or not, got a waiver to reopen...Talk about having no cares about your employees health and well-being
