First Lady Frances Wolf announced Thursday that she has tested negative for COVID-19. The news of her negative test results comes a day after Gov. Tom Wolf announced that he had tested positive for the virus.

In a short statement, she said that Wolf continues to isolate at home but is asymptomatic, First Lady Wolf said before asking Pennsylvanians to take precautions.

“Tom and I are grateful for the well-wishes and support we have received,” said First Lady Wolf. “Please, on behalf of the more than 400,000 Pennsylvanians who have contracted this virus, the more than 12,000 who have died, and the healthcare and essential workers who are overwhelmed and scared, follow the direction of our doctors. Wear your masks. And, if you can, stay home.”
