HARRISBURG (AP) – Gov. Tom Wolf wants a statewide requirement that students in classrooms wear masks as protection against the coronavirus. Wolf wrote a letter to legislative leaders saying that lawmakers should be called back to Harrisburg immediately to work on a bill to order schools and child care facilities to require masks in classrooms. Wolf says concerned parents, pediatricians, teachers, and others have been urging state officials for such a mandate. A spokesperson for the House GOP caucus says its members are opposed to voting on a statewide mask mandate.
