Tom Wolfe, the governor of Pennsylvania, says that you are in control of how many people catch this contagious disease. He has put stay at home orders in place and stopped functions at airports, train stations, and other forms of travel in order to carry out a travel ban. Schools have been shut down to protect children and their parents could be out of a job to remain healthy. However, no matter how much action the governor takes, it is up to the citizens of Pennsylvanian to listen in order stay home and protect each other. So far, it is clear that not everyone is listening.

Populated cities like Philadelphia, Pittsburg, and Harrisburg are aware that they have very high numbers of cases. So, some citizens think that it is a good idea to go against the travel ban and commute to a city in Pennsylvania that has lower numbers, in order to keep their families safe. However, this is the exact opposite of what you should be doing to be keeping your loved ones, and your state, safe. The commute to a neighboring city or state could be very dangerous for you health whether you go by airplane, train, or a family vehicle. Please do not carry out this quarantine any longer, stay home.
