Displeased over dangerous conduct of a defiant Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback to adhere to stay-at-home policy, Pennsylvania Governor reiterated his call for everyone to remain indoors due to the threat of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a briefing on Tuesday, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf was asked by reporters what’s his thought about Ben Roethlisberger recently getting a haircut and beard trim at a barbershop in the state.
“My concern is just a general concern,” Wolf said, not mentioning Roethlisberger by name.
“Anybody who puts himself or herself into harm’s way is something that I think we ought to try to avoid. When you go to something like a barbershop and you’re not protected, I don’t care who you are, the chances of that virus actually wreaking havoc on your life increases,” said Wolf.
“I don’t personally think any Pennsylvanian ought to take that chance. I certainly don’t want to take that chance myself,” he added.
The Steelers and Roethlisberger posted a video on social media on Monday.
It shows the quarterback throwing passes to teammates, he was injured last year and underwent elbow surgery in September.
Then the video shows Roethlisberger in a chair at a barbershop getting his beard trimmed.
According to reports, Roethlisberger went to Norman’s Cut ‘N Edge Barbershop, which is in Allegheny County.
The stay-at-home order in Pennsylvania was extended until June 4 for counties in the “red phase.”
Meanwhile, counties in the yellow phase, which includes Allegheny County, can start reopening its businesses on a limited capacity.
Hair salons are still barred from reopening for those areas in the yellow phase.
