The SARS CoV 2 virus continues to spread across Pennsylvania and the nation. Following CDC guidelines handed down on Friday Governor Tom Wolf and Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine both began urging anyone heading out into public places to begin wearing masks to protect themselves from touching their faces or to prevent asymptomatic people from spreading the virus through their breath; directions for making your own mask at home can be found at the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s website.
