Gov. Tom Wolf seemingly violated his own coronavirus reopening orders on Wednesday.
The governor joined hundreds in a march against gun violence and racial injustice in Harrisburg, despite the fact that Dauphin County is still in the yellow phase, where gatherings are supposed to be limited to 25 people or less.
Wolf and Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine have held steadfast on the idea that protesting is a civic right during the global pandemic, including when groups rallied to reopen Pennsylvania faster back in May.
“The governor has always said that people have the right to protest, and to demonstrate, and the right to free speech, and so overall, we want large gatherings such as maybe a party or some type of concert or something, to be under 250 people……..But, we are not restricting people’s right to protest………There are all obviously significant social issues that are present, that people feel that they need to have a voice, and so the governor is always supportive of that and is participating.”Dr. Rachel Levine

State Sen. Doug Mastriano, a Republican, sent Wolf a letter Thursday asking what the difference was between a large gathering in the streets and one anywhere else when it comes to public health and safety concerns related to the coronavirus. He was hardly the only critic of the governor to express that sentiment on social media.
