Gov. Tom Wolf made that announcement during a news conference on Friday morning.  One case is in Delaware county , the other case is in Wayne County in the far northeastern portion of Pennsylvania.  Both patients have been quarantined to their homes.

The Delaware County case is an adult who recently traveled to an infected area in the US, the Wayne County patient traveled to an infected country.

“In the last few hours we received confirmation of presumed – I emphasize the word presumed – positive cases of COVID-19, or coronavirus, in Pennsylvania. I’m saying presumed positive for a reason, because the results have to be confirmed by the CDC. But we have two that we have tested in Pennsylvania, so we are presuming positive,” Wolf said.

“It is critical to prepare for and respond to suspected or confirmed cases in the commonwealth and to implement measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The disaster declaration is an additional way we can be prepared,” Wolf said.

Several schools in Bucks County have closed for today to allow for a deep clean, after the possible patient attended a Bucks County event.
