Wolf said, “I’m sort of thinking” the mask-wearing order signed by his boss could be in place until there is a Chinese Wu-Flu vaccine.

Pa. Gov. Tom Wolf said Monday that an expanded mask-wearing order signed by his Health Secretary last week could be in place until there is a coronavirus vaccine.
“I’m sort of thinking this is until we get a vaccine, but I don’t have any real formal goal there,” Wolf said on a video of the news conference. “There are some places where people just wear masks, as a matter of, just people wear them. I think it might be a good idea.
