Bob Casey, Dem senator from Pennsylvania, says antibody test shows he had coronavirus

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., revealed Friday he tested positive for coronavirus antibodies and will donate plasma to help others battling the virus.

“On Wednesday afternoon, I received the results of a COVID-19 ELISA IgG Antibody Test, which were positive,” Casey said in a statement. “This positive test means that I likely had COVID-19 at some point over the last several months and have since developed an antibody response to the virus.”

SEN. TIM KAINE AND WIFE TEST POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS ANTIBODIES

Casey’s announcement comes shortly after Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., announced this week that he and his wife also had a positive antibody test. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was the first senator who was diagnosed with COVID-19 in real-time by taking a diagnostic test.

Casey was sick earlier this spring with a low-grade fever and some mild flu-like symptoms.  After talking to his doctor, he quarantined at home in Scranton for two weeks and didn’t seek medical care since his symptoms were manageable, the senator said.

“My fever went away on its own by mid-April, and it was never recommended that I be tested for the virus,” Casey said.

But recently, Casey consulted Dr. Brian Monahan, the Capitol’s attending physician, and received the blood test to see if his mild sickness earlier this spring could have been COVID-19.

The results showed Casey had “substantial levels of COVID-19 antibody in my blood, significantly more than the amount required to qualify me as a plasma donor,” Casey said.

Casey said he’s making his first plasma donation Friday in Taylor, Penn., to help others fighting the virus.

COVID-19 has now killed more than 100,000 Americans.

The presence of antibodies for a certain disease in someone’s system is a reliable indicator that he or she has had that illness in the past. Antibodies, according to a CDC page on the coronavirus, typically “help fight off infections and usually provide protection against getting that disease again (immunity).” But it remains unclear how much immunity they provide from getting the coronavirus again.

Given the uncertainly, Casey and Kaine both said they’ll continue to follow the advice of public health experts and wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines. Meanwhile, Paul has chosen not to wear a mask, claiming immunity.

Pennsylvania lawmaker tears into GOP after colleague tests positive for coronavirus, doesn’t tell Democrats

Westlake Legal Group pennsylvania-lawmaker-tears-into-gop-after-colleague-tests-positive-for-coronavirus-doesnt-tell-democrats Pennsylvania lawmaker tears into GOP after colleague tests positive for coronavirus, doesn't tell Democrats Morgan Phillips fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/politics fnc article 1e17443c-bd3b-5ec6-8cd3-f2b43a82c65a

Pennsylvania Democrat State Rep. Brian Sims tore into his GOP colleagues after learning that the Republican speaker of the House informed his party but not Democrats that a member of his caucus tested positive for coronavirus.

“Every single day of this crisis this State Government Committee in Pennsylvania has met so that their members could line up one after one after one and explain that it was safe to go back to work,” Sims said on Facebook Live Wednesday night. “During that time period, they were testing positive. They were notifying one another. And they didn’t notify us.”

GOP state Rep. Andrew Lewis issued a statement making it known that he was the lawmaker who had tested positive, but only told the “handful” of people he had come in contact with to protect his privacy.

“I immediately began self-isolation protocol and contacted the House of Representatives, and our caucus Human Resources department. My last day in the Capitol was Thursday, May 14,” Lewis said in a statement.

STATES SEND MIXED MESSAGES ABOUT WHETHER CORONAVIRUS REBOUND COULD TRIGGER SECOND ROUND OF SHUTDOWNS 

“We worked together and followed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s workplace exposure guidelines to determine exactly who I may have been in contact with, and who I may have possibly exposed to the virus. I can confirm every member or staff member who met the criteria for exposure was immediately contacted and required to self-isolate for 14 days from their date of possible exposure.”

<a data-cke-saved-href=”https://www.foxnews.com/category/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania” href=”https://www.foxnews.com/category/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania” target=”_blank”>Pennsylvania</a> Democrat State Rep. Brian Sims tore into his GOP colleagues after learning that the Republican speaker of the House informed his party but not Democrats that a member of his caucus tested positive for coronavirus. 

But according to Sims, the Republican continued to work for at least a week following his diagnosis.

“I’m right now surrounded by members that can’t go see their kids, that are having to call their husbands, having to call their wives and saying, ‘Honey, I might have exposed you and everybody I love in the world because one of my colleagues tested positive, but he was protecting his family but not protecting mine, and Republican leadership protected him,’” Sims raged, pounding his desk.

“F–k, I’ve spent so much of my time here trying to see beyond the blind, disgusting partisanship, and now that partisanship has grown deadly,” he added.

GOP CANDIDATE BLASTS PA GOV’S ‘ABSOLUTELY ABSURD’ BENCHMARK FOR FULL REOPENING 

Sims called for a “full-blown investigation” by the attorney general and the state secretary of health to determine if it is safe for members to return to the capitol, which he demanded be “scrubbed from top to bottom.” He also called for everyone who works in the building to be tested, paid for by the Republican caucus. He called on House Speaker Mike Terzai to resign.

Lewis responded Friday by saying he was “disheartened” to see Democrats playing politics with his health. “Let me set the record straight: I would never knowingly put my colleagues or anyone else at risk. As of today, I have not stepped foot in the capitol complex since before my symptoms began two weeks ago,” Lewis wrote on Facebook.

Sims also called out Republican Rep. Russ Diamond, who self-quarantined but was not tested for COVID-19 after coming into contact with Lewis.

“Russ Diamond walked around the House floor every day without a mask on,” Sims said. “Just a little bit ago I was on the House floor, and at one point only four Republican members had their masks on. Holy shit!”

Diamond responded on Twitter: “Lefties whine because I self-quarantined but didn’t get tested after possible COVID “contact.” Confirmed by my doc: No reason for testing, even if I could get tested without symptoms. I feel like a million bucks! Well, $500k after lefties tax me.”

Still, other Democrats joined in on the outrage. Dem. leader Frank Dermody said Republicans have “attempted to make a virtue out of” not wearing masks on the House floor, even as they knew of the diagnosis.

“While we are pleased to learn that this House member seems to have recovered, it is simply unacceptable that some House Republicans knew about this for more than a week and sat on that knowledge,” Dermody said. “This attitude shows a fundamental lack of respect for fellow lawmakers.”

Republicans have made the argument that “personal responsibility to follow CDC guidelines alone was enough to protect the public,” Rep. Dan Frankel said.

“Now, we learn that they didn’t even attempt to protect their own members or the communities that their members return to,” he said. “I am horrified to learn that members of the General Assembly failed to do the right thing, at a time when so many Pennsylvanians are doing so in much more difficult situations.”

A Pennsylvania mother shared drugs with her 15-year-old son and left him to die from an overdose, police said.

Jennifer Pugliese, 49, was charged Wednesday with homicide and child endangerment nearly 11 months after her son was found dead in her Swatara Township apartment last July, PennLive.com reports.

The teen, Dean Pugliese, died from heroin toxicity and kratom toxicity, a detective wrote in an arrest report.

Kratom, a plant that grows naturally in parts of Southeast Asia, affects the same opioid brain receptors as morphine, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Investigators found heroin in an eyeglass case beneath the teen’s body when they responded to his mother’s apartment on July 3. The woman then gave “inconsistent” statements to detectives, police said.

Pugliese admitted to investigators she took her son with her to a store two days earlier to buy kratom, which she purchased to share with him, police said.

Shep’s Barber Shop, just outside Harrisburg, Pa., became the epicenter of the movement to defy Gov. Tom Wolf’s heavy-handed economic shutdown. Fighting back tears at a rally, owner Brad Shepler delivered a warning far clearer than anything the governor has said in weeks: “You need to realize, we’re all losing our rights as American citizens. And we should all be afraid of that.”

State officials threatened to revoke Shepler’s barbering license and fine him up to $10,000 per day after he reopened his business without authorization. This individual revolt — and countless others — came just days after eight Pennsylvania counties threatened to ditch Wolf’s haphazard reopening process to make their own decisions.

Meanwhile, state lawmakers have passed bill after bill to reopen critical industries and reverse Wolf’s refusal to abide by transparency measures in the state’s equivalent of the Freedom of Information Act.

JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: CORONAVIRUS SHUTDOWNS ORDERED BY GOVERNORS AND MAYORS ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL

There are common denominators in the governor’s decisions: he makes them behind closed doors, and they hurt people.

As a result, Pennsylvania is now in the throes of a second public health crisis, devastated by the predictable after-effects of mass unemployment and social isolation. Overdoses, drug-related deaths, domestic violence, domestic abuse, anxiety, depression, and suicide attempts are all spiking. Wolf’s home county has seen over three times more deaths from opioid abuse during quarantine than from COVID-19.

More from Opinion

Most tragically, Wolf refuses to come clean about Pennsylvania’s widely reported nursing home catastrophe. Nearly 70 percent of COVID-19’s death toll in Pennsylvania comes from these homes for the elderly. The Health Department, led by Secretary Rachel Levine, circulated a nursing home early response plan but never implemented it — then covered up its failure.

The governor’s lack of transparency is compounded by his top coronavirus aide’s hypocrisy. Levine, having insider access to the rising death toll, quietly transferred her elderly mother from a nursing home to a hotel — even while the health department mandated those homes accept COVID-19 patients.

Wolf campaigned promising “jobs that pay, schools that teach, and government that works.” His handling of this pandemic has produced the opposite: record unemployment, shuttered schools, and government failure.

No wonder he is one of only five governors, all Democrats, to receive an “F” for his reopening strategy, according to an analysis from the Committee to Unleash Prosperity.

The groundswell of opposition to Wolf’s repudiation of transparency is growing daily. In addition to demanding the resignation of Levine, state legislators have taken the governor to court to scrutinize the dubious waiver system he established to grant exemptions from his shutdown of so-called “non-life-sustaining” businesses.

By keeping citizens in the dark, Gov. Wolf has forced Pennsylvanians to question the motives behind his every decision.

From the beginning, his administration kept waiver records from the public, while granting them to the politically connected, like his former business, Wolf Home Products. The auditor general, a Democrat, is currently auditing the Wolf administration’s handling of the waiver process.

Wolf has also earned resentment from the press corps after treating them like infants. The governor’s press conferences are a parody: Wolf stands before an empty press briefing room as his press secretary reads him pre-screened questions. Reporters have complained that their submitted questions were altered, calling the practice “unacceptable” and “disingenuous.” And follow-up questions are strictly forbidden.

By keeping citizens in the dark, Wolf has forced Pennsylvanians to question the motives behind his every decision. The lesson is clear: Transparency is never optional — not even during a crisis.

But instead of coming clean, Wolf has called those questioning his policies “cowards” and “deserters” and threatened to withhold federal stimulus money from counties that don’t comply with his shutdown order.

Fortunately, state lawmakers are showing no signs of caving. They immediately pushed back, sending the governor another sheaf of reopening bills. Perhaps they heard the cries of an onlooker from the barber shop rally who shouted, “We will not watch our freedoms wither and die.”

Pennsylvania is showing precisely how citizens and their elected representatives can fill the leadership vacuum under a governor who has jettisoned any pretense of transparency and strayed far from his stated goals.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to confuse the June 6 anniversary of the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France in 1944 with the Dec. 7 anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941 during a livestreamed discussion with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday.

During their discussion, which was meant to mark Wolf’s endorsement of Biden’s candidacy and touched on topics like the commonwealth’s coronavirus recovery, Biden said that his home state of Delaware “declared our independence on December the 7th, by the way. And it’s not just D-Day.”

On Dec. 7, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Biden’s birth state of Pennsylvania followed suit five days later, on Dec. 12.

CNN’S DANA BASH RIDICULED FOR JOE BIDEN INTERVIEW: ‘SO MUCH FOR JOURNALISM’

“We’re an incredible, incredible country,” Biden had said earlier. “One of the things that I see, Tom — the old joke was that people used to say, ‘You know that arc that goes into Pennsylvania [is] quote-unquote in Delaware.'”

Delaware’s northern border with Pennsylvania is famously defined by a 12-mile arc extending outward from the courthouse in New Castle.

“I had somebody once say, ‘The best part of Delaware’s in Pennsylvania,'” Biden said. “It’s not, we have a whole state, but my point is, we’re very close.”

Wolf then stated that Delaware was itself once part of the Pennsylvania colony. The three counties of New Castle, Kent and Sussex later became their own entity at the time of the Revolutionary War.

Earlier in the interview, the former vice president highlighted his connection to the Keystone State, remarking that during his tenure in Congress, he was often nicknamed “Pennsylvania’s third senator.”

Biden, 77, has a history of gaffes, including the latest last week where he said during an interview with Charlamagne tha God that African-American voters “ain’t black” if they can’t decide whether to vote for him or President Trump in November.

Representatives from the Biden campaign did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment Wednesday night.

As most states move to at least partially reopen their economies and lift orders requiring people to stay at home to slow the spread of the coronavirus, they are sending mixed messages on whether or not the controversial restrictions could be fully or partially re-implemented if there is another increase of cases.

Social distancing measures and stay-at-home orders aimed at slowing the coronavirus’ spread are meant to decrease the number of people sick at any given time, thus preventing hospitals from being overwhelmed and not being able to give adequate care to all of their patients inflicted with the disease.

Outside of a few hotspots, that goal has largely been accomplished in the U.S. And states, seemingly confident that their hospitals are safe, have begun slowly lifting their lockdown orders which kept kids home from school, adults away from work and most public gathering places closed down.

But medical experts have warned that just because coronavirus cases begin decreasing does not mean they cannot spike again — either in the immediate aftermath of the lifting of states’ restrictions or later this year as the weather cools, potentially making it easier for the virus to be transmitted between people as happens with the seasonal flu.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

CORONAVIRUS IS ‘JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG,’ SAYS CHINA’S TOP BAT RESEARCHER

President Trump, for his part, has made clear he opposes any return to stay-at-home orders or re-closures of businesses.

“People say that’s a very distinct possibility,” Trump said when asked a possible second wave of infections last week. “It’s standard. And, we’re going put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country.”

States’ reopening plans differ significantly on the level of consideration they give such a possibility, and how they would deal with the problem.

Maryland and Pennsylvania, for example, specifically address the chance of a spike in cases as their coronavirus restrictions are lifted, but diverge in how much they detail a potential response.

Maryland’s plan identifies three “stop signs” that could force “the easing to slow, stop, or even be reversed.” Those include an uptick in hospitalizations or cases taking up resources at hospitals, [i]ndications that Marylanders are disregarding social distancing guidelines,” and outbreaks significant enough that contact tracing cannot keep up with the spread.

Pennsylvania has plans for “robust surveillance” that will allow the state to “determine if changes in the reopening and the easing of the restriction process must take place.” It does not define this specifically, however, beyond detailing how it will isolate and quarantine cases of the virus to “stamp out” the spread of the disease.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, on the other hand, has indicated she has does not intend to return the state’s previous strict disease-mitigation measures, saying the state would “live with” the coronavirus just as it has for “the flu and other viruses for which there is no known cure,” according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

“Our numbers are not as good as we would hope,” Ivey at a news conference on the easing of her state’s restrictions last week, according to AL.com. “But we cannot sustain a delayed way of life as we search for a vaccine. It’s not realistic to believe we’re going to keep everyone totally isolated from each other.”

Neither Alabama’s new coronavirus executive order nor its accompanying fact sheets address the potential for another wave of infections or measures the state might take if that possibility materializes.

WHITE HOUSE BARS ENTRY OF NON-US CITIZENS TRAVELING FROM BRAZIL, CITING CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS

Meanwhile, Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has kept most of her state’s strict regulations in place in an effort to stomp out the disease before any second wave can materialize.

“If we’re going to lower the chance of a second wave and continue to protect our neighbors and loved ones from the spread of this virus, we must continue to do our part by staying safer at home,” she said last week as she extended Michigan’s stay-at-home order to June 12.

And New York has a more than 150-page set of reopening guidelines that makes clear if experts see concerning trends, they can stop or reverse the reopening efforts, which are already significantly underway upstate despite how hard the disease has hit the more dense New York City area.

“Each region must appoint an oversight institution as its ‘control room’ to monitor the regional infection rate during the phased reopening. This team of local elected officials, as well as hospital and state representatives, will monitor the above metrics and other key indicators, and can slow or shut off reopening if indicators are problematic,” the guidelines read.

They continue: “The State’s public dashboard will allow regions and the public to see where regions are in meeting the metrics, and if certain areas are slipping and in need of additional actions to control the virus and protect the public’s health – a ‘circuit breaker.'”

Virginia has a detailed plan for how it will proceed with its reopening but doesn’t identify any benchmarks that could cause the state to pull back the reigns, or what officials or institutions would be responsible for making that call.

PURDUE UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT SAYS NOT REOPENING IN THE FALL WOULD BE ‘UNACCEPTABLE’

The different approaches states are taking as they navigate the unprecedented health and economic crisis that’s been thrust upon them in the first half of this year come as the World Health Organization (WHO) warned Monday that an “immediate second peak” in coronavirus cases could face nations that relax their controls on the disease’s spread too soon.

“When we speak about a second wave classically what we often mean is there will be a first wave of the disease by itself, and then it recurs months later. And that may be a reality for many countries in a number of months’ time,” WHO emergencies director Dr. Mike Ryan said, according to Reuters. “But we need also to be cognizant of the fact that the disease can jump up at any time”

“We cannot make assumptions that just because the disease is on the way down now it is going to keep going down,” Ryan continued, warning that nations should “continue to put in place the public health and social measures… [so] we don’t have an immediate second peak.”

U.S. National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci has also warned about the potential for further outbreaks that could result from a false start by states or localities lifting their coronavirus restrictions.

“If some areas – cities states or what have you – jump over those barriers, checkpoints and prematurely open up without having the capability of being able to respond effectively, and efficiently, my concern is that we will start to see little spikes that might turn into outbreaks,” he said in a Senate hearing earlier this month.

Fauci in the hearing boosted a set of guidelines the White House has released for states and localities to begin opening their economies. In order to proceed to the first of three stages, states would need to see an uninterrupted decrease in coronavirus cases over a 14-day period, but not all states that are moving to reopen have seen such a decrease.

Fauci, in the hearing on how to safely and quickly reopen the U.S. economy, warned that states jumping the gun could lead to preventable “suffering and death” and “turn the clock back” on reopening goals “instead of going forward.”

FBI joins 3-state manhunt for UConn student wanted in string of slayings, home invasion and kidnapping

The FBI has joined the massive manhunt, which is now spanning three states, for a University of Connecticut student believed to be armed with several stolen guns whom police say is connected to two homicides, a kidnapping and a home invasion.

Peter Manfredonia, 23, last seen in Stroudsburg, Pa., is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached if spotted, authorities said. Police describe him as a 6 feet, 3 inches tall white man.

His second stolen getaway car – a 2016 Black Volkswagen Jetta – was located by New Jersey State Police at a rest stop near the Pennsylvania border on Sunday.

CONNECTICUT MANHUNT UNDERWAY FOR SUSPECT IN 2 KILLINGS, ASSAULT

Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania state police, as well as local police departments in Derby and Ansonia, Conn., continue their “active and ongoing investigation.”

His kidnapping victim, the girlfriend of 23-year-old Nicholas Eisele, whom Manfredonia allegedly shot to death at his home on Roosevelt Drive in Derby, Conn., was also found with the vehicle.

Police said Eisele and Manfredonia appear to have been acquaintances.

The woman, whom authorities have not identified by name, did not appear to be harmed when troopers found her with the vehicle on Interstate 80 in Knowlton Township, Warren County.

Manfredonia, a college senior majoring in finance and mechanical engineering, kicked off his crime spree Friday. He is suspected of killing 62-year-old Ted DeMers, an artist and Marine veteran, and assaulting another man in Willington, Conn.

DeMers’ wife, Cynthia DeMers, told the Hartford Courant that the two men had been attacked after they found Manfredonia walking along a road and offered him a ride back to his motorcycle.

“It could have been anybody who offered him a ride,” she said. “It could have been any of my neighbors’ husbands. It just happened to be mine.”

DeMers was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The other man suffered severe wounds described as sword or machete wounds, Connecticut State Police said.

By Sunday morning, Connecticut Trooper Christine Jeltema said police responded to a home invasion in Willington, Conn. A man reported he had been held against his will by Manfredonia, who then left with food, a handgun, several long guns and the man’s truck, which was found abandoned at 6:45 a.m. near Osbornedale State Park in New Haven County, Conn.

“The truck found near Osbourndale State Park was believed to be operated by Manfredonia and taken in connection with the Willington crimes.  Evidence suggests that the truck became lodged on an elevated embankment at which time he abandoned it,” the Derby Police Department said in a Facebook update on Monday.

Investigators went to the Derby home of an Manfredonia acquaintance and found the man dead. He was identified Sunday afternoon as 23-year-old Nicholas Eisele. Manfredonia allegedly kidnapped Eisele’s girlfriend, stealing the couple’s vehicle to make his escape.

Local surveillance showed Manfredonia walking directly toward the Roosevelt Drive homicide scene in the early Sunday morning hours between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., according to authorities. The Roosevelt Drive location is approximately 1 mile from where his first getaway truck was found abandoned in New Haven County.

Manfredonia is a 2015 graduate of Newtown High School. He is a senior at the University of Connecticut, but has not lived on the campus in Storrs, Conn., at the time of the crimes or during recent semesters, UConn spokesperson Stephanie Reitz told WVIT.

Pennsylvania Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell called out Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf Monday on “Fox & Friends,” arguing it is “absurd” to believe the state cannot fully reopen until a “foolproof” coronavirus vaccine is available to the public.

Parnell, who is running for the House seat currently held by Democrat Conor Lamb, said business owners in the Keystone State don’t have that long to wait.

“The fact of the matter is we might not ever have a vaccine. … Pennsylvania stands on a very thin line between hope and darkness,” said Parnell, a decorated combat veteran who was wounded in Afghanistan. “We have Democrat and Republican business [owners] around here that are about to close their doors forever. We have 2.2 million people unemployed, over 30 percent of the state, and most can’t access the state’s antiquated unemployment system. It’s a disaster. We have no choice but to reopen safely.”

As he faces increasing pressure from the business community, Wolf said Thursday he does not believe the state can return to normalcy until a proven vaccine is widely available. The governor emphasized the need for widespread testing and contact tracing.

“Ultimately I think what it’s going to take for everybody to feel safe going to a Penn State game or a basketball game is that they have some confidence that they’re not going to get sick by being in close contact with somebody else,” Wolf said.

“I think that’s what it’s going to take to really get our economy back to normal, and I really think that can’t happen fully, 100 percent until we have a vaccine that is foolproof. That’s my own stance.”

PA DINER OWNERS REOPEN IN DEFIANCE OF GOVERNOR’S ORDER

Parnell said 80 percent of coronavirus deaths in the state occurred in nursing homes, and locking down the economy would not have prevented that from happening. Wolf initially said the economic shutdown was temporary to slow the spread of the virus, but Parnell pointed out that the rhetoric has gradually shifted to a vaccine now being necessary for reopening.

Earlier on “Fox & Friends” Monday, the owners of a York, Padiner that reopened in defiance of state coronavirus shutdown orders called out Democrats for going “too far” after the state temporarily revoked their license to operate.

In an interview with host Steve Doocy, Round the Clock Diner owners Dimos and Christos Sacarellos, who are father and son, said they remain open for Memorial Day customers while they appeal the order.

After a recent appearance on the show, the Sacarelloses said they received notice that their two locations had been shut down, with Christos Sacarellos calling it a “tyrannical temper tantrum” by Gov. Wolf.

Meanwhile, some Democrats in Pennsylvania are reportedly beginning to put some pressure on Wolf about the state’s reopening process two months after his office issued a stay-at-home order.

The Philadelphia Inquirer pointed to a few recent instances where Democrats seemed eager to see bigger steps in the state’s reopening, including a letter from State. Sen. Maria Collett that relayed some frustrations of residents in Montgomery County.

Tom Wolf. He said the restaurant has been following CDC guidelines, keeping customers six feet apart and can operate in a safe and responsible way.

“This was only intended to stop the curve. This is not politics now. This is going a little bit too far. Flatten the fear. Let’s get back to normal,” he added, as his father Dimos argued that Democrats have an “agenda” behind keeping businesses closed.

“[People] want to be free. Everyone, every customer comes in they thank us. Thank you for being open. ‘Thank you’ when they leave, they thank us again. It’s not about the diner. It’s about the American people. They want their freedom,” Dimos said.

Meantime, some Democrats in Pennsylvania are reportedly beginning to put some pressure on Gov. Wolf about the state’s reopening process two months after his office issued a stay-at-home order.

The Philadelphia Inquirer pointed to a few recent instances where Democrats seemed eager to see bigger steps in the state’s reopening, including a letter from State. Sen. Maria Collett that relayed some frustrations of residents in Montgomery County.

The letter last Tuesday informed Wolf that many in her county have seen little evidence that Wolf’s administration “recognizes and sympathizes with the added physical,  emotional, and financial suffering they are facing as a result of  our prolonged stay-at-home conditions, which you know.”

Wolf has maintained that his top priority is safety. However, like other states, residents have suffered financially from coronavirus guidelines. About 2 million Pennsylvania residents have lost their jobs since mid-March.

Banner planes – usually used on the Jersey Shore during the summer to advertise drink specials, pizza deals or local businesses – took a political tilt in the Wildwoods on Sunday, mocking the governors of New Jersey and Pennsylvania over their stance on beach reopenings, a report said Sunday.

TEAM TRUMP CAMPAIGNING AT BEACHES MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

Gov. Phil Murphy was cited by a banner saying, “Murphy’s mom voted for Guadagno,” NJ Advance Media reported. Murphy ran against Chris Christie’s Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno in 2017. Another banner lampooned Pennsylvania’s governor, saying, “Tom Wolf likes to color” – an apparent reference to his color-coded reopening plan. Wolf and Murphy disagree over the opening of beaches in New Jersey and Maryland.

An employee at Paramount Air Service, an aerial advertising company, confirmed to NJ Advance Media the two signs were paid for by a client to fly along the coast, but would not disclose more information.

Additional banners were flown further north, in Sea Isle City, the report said. Those signs said, “Resist Murphy,” and “Wolf is the Nerd King.”

A few businesses have garnered media attention for opening before New Jersey restrictions were lifted by the state, NJ Advance Media reported, and on Monday, a rally in Point Pleasant Beach will call for businesses deemed nonessential to reopen.
