Harrisburg, Pa – On Friday April 17, 2020 the Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania was interviewed live on national television about the prospects of reopening the state during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Citizens are preparing for life as usual beginning no later than May 1, however Lt. Governor John Fetterman was less optimistic.

“We are weeks away from any kind of major announcement opening, if at all,” Lt. Fetterman said of the shutdown in Pennsylvania.

Appearing in street clothing, wearing his trademark Carhartt jacket, Fetterman made the statement yesterday that he believes reopening Pennsylvania will be “directed by science and the experts,” and he says that at this time science doesn’t support reopening the economy.

    Pennsylvania was not infected as in New York and other places. Many communities have no infections. Time to open our state. Other governors are opening their respected communities. Enough is enough! We’ve NEVER closed down the economy for any other flu! This is a political hack job now to delay opening up the economy to go against our President! People of Pennsylvania have had enough!

  4. Hey Fetterman Science doesn’t support the fact that Dr Richard Levine, which goes by the name of Dr Rachel Levine is an Actual Woman. He’s a dude pretending to a girl and yet we Pennsylvanians are supposed to take you, Tom Wolf and Richard Levine seriously. Go back smoking your dope, better yet get your house in order and stop taking away our Constitutional Rights. Oh and since Tom Wolf has made wearing facemasks Mandatory will he also provide them to the citizens. I didn’t think so…

  5. They admitted everyone is most likely going to contract this virus. We stayed home so the medical personnel wouldn’t be overwhelmed. Wasn’t that the plan? Wait until the hospitals were prepared? And then we take precautions and go back to work?

  6. We’re weeks away, if at all? What the hell kind of comment is that? So our choices fellow Pennsylvaniaians are 2 weeks more of this crap….or….never! We board the joint up and we all move away.

    find a more qualified expert. We started this lockdown so we would not overwhelm our hospitals. So far our hospitals have not even come close to being overwhelmed. Our community’s are being economically and socially terribly damaged. As with any virus we need to shelter and protect the most vulnerable people amongst us. Our state budget was in sad shape prior to this event. Shutting down the State liquor stores and the revenue lost further crippled the state. I am not an economist but it seems like you have shot yourself in the foot.

  9. It seems to me that the author of this order is Dr. Levine, male or female. However, he/she is not elected official and has no authority as far as i can tell to issue any order. These orders are completely unconstitutional and will never stand up in a court of law. And what have they decided the punishment will be for offenders? Whatever that punishment might be, will be thrown out as soon as the court opens it’s doors again. I would like to think that they would not try to arrest people – that will cause civil lawsuits out the kazoo for municipalities. As a small business owner, I will be operational on May 1, 2020. They need to remember – they work for us – we don’t work for them.

  10. As directed by science? Seriously? Science started out by saying no need to wear masks- now they are essential. Hundreds of thousands will die- not accurate. “Models” have been inaccurate. The one data point that is true and trustworthy is small business are going bankrupt and the fallout will ruin many who have worked hard to build a business only to be “forced” to close.

  11. Every death is a tragedy, I don’t deny that. I do, however, question the numbers. The death rate and confirmed cases are going up in PA?

    The more you test, the numbers will go up. That’s not a death sentence. The reported deaths due to COVID-19 is false ( in my opinion). The numbers are false so the communists running PA can impose more government control.

    Meanwhile, small businesses are crumbling. That is despicable and the “leadership “ of this commonwealth is to blame. Now they want everyone to wear a mask. Bullshit

    Open PA back up. Wear the masks and social distance as needed. Government and the media needs to stop scaring people.

  12. As of April 18, there were 31,069 cases of COVID-19 virus and 836 dead in PA even with the best protocol and practices of “stay at home” and social distancing. This is fact. Removing current practices across the state will increase the risk exponentially, especially to the older population. These are statistics until they hit home to someone we love. At the same time, Pennsylvanians need to earn a living. This suggests the development of a protocol that will be sustainable and not force the state to close again. Governor Wolf announced his administration is working in earnest on a plan he hopes to present within two weeks. In the meantime, the Republican controlled PA House and Senate have passed SB 613 which addresses tax issues largely, crosses out all suggestions presented by the Democrats, and announces a plan to make a plan for opening the economy, but has ZERO guidelines. In other words, it is not a plan. NO PLAN. I read the entire bill and I suggest others do the same. It is clearly a hastily, unclear, poorly crafted piece of legislation that should be an embarrassment to the PA Senate and the PA Republican Party. Let us do this right. We are all in this together.

    We did what they asked, by sheltering place.
    We should have opened Easter Monday. Soft openings. The virus is here to stay until they find a cure or vaccine to manage it. Everyday that we don’t work is going to be the death of healthily people, financially, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Pennsylvania has drive and desire to rise up and hit this virus head on. We can maintain social distancing, no one is suggesting otherwise. We are never going back to what we used be, we are using our technology and adopted new safer policies and proceeders. We are adults. We know the risk. We can do this and do it responsible.

    They closed the businesses so quickly with no notice I wonder if they’ll find any skeletons of people who didn’t get out fast enough!

    Some time to prepare giving food purveyors to have some specials to use food on hand or giving us a day to get reading materials or movies from the library to help us through the quarantine.

  20. Tom WOLF needs to be removed from office. HE has made PENNSYLVANIA bankrupt because he has no idea about what he is doing EXCEPT trying to take our constitutional rights away. And the covid19 NUMBERS are completely made up and BULLSHIT. Tell me the last time you heard that someone died from something other then covid19. The classify all DEATHS covid19 so They can cook the numbers, to try to keep people scared about the virus. The are trying to train people to obey everything they say. New world order. This virus is no worse than any other virus. The media lies about everything to hype people up so they are scared to go outside because they might die from the virus. Yes you can die from this virus, the flu,other virus, killed in a car accident, have a heart attack, from cancer,diabetes, anoyrism, you take a risk anytime you go somewhere. It’s part of life, viruses are part of life, always have and always will. The thing the media or the so called EXPERTS don’t tell you is that your immune system needs to be in contact with other people and things so that you can be around germs and bacteria and viruses, that’s what keeps your immune system strong. Its common sense. The stay at home order, the wearing gloves and masks order will only WEAKEN your immune system. So you and everyone else can live your or their life the way you want. But I have been working through this whole thing and come in contact with different people every day. I still haven’t seen someone or know anyone or know anyone who knows someone that has this virus. The supposed tests aren’t accurate at all. The government is showing everyone how easy it is to control us and take our constitutional rights away, well I will not adhere to their mandate, I will not live in FEAR, and I will not stop fighting for mine and every AMERICAN CITIZEN RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES. GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH,BECAUSE I WILL NOT LIVE UNDER TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TRYING TO TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE OR TELLING ANYONE HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIFE. THIS IS THE USA THAT WE LIVE IN. LAND OF THE FREE AND LAND OF THE BRAVE. GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP, AMERICA AND GOD BLESS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
