Over two days of reporting over the weekend, Cumberland County saw 18 new COVID-19 positives, while York County saw a large spike in new cases.

In the southcentral region, Dauphin County had largely been the one seeing the highest number of new cases each day, sometimes offset by Lebanon County's new numbers. And while Dauphin County did see a rise of 37 new cases over the weekend, it was York County in the recent days that has overtaken Dauphin with the largest number of new cases.

In the state Department of Health's reporting Thursday and Friday, York County had an equal or greater number than Dauphin County's new cases, and over the weekend, it had a large spike of 67 new confirmed and probable cases. York County is currently in the green phase of Gov. Tom Wolf's reopening plan.

Though the Department of Health has not updated its long-term care facilities list in more than a week, the York Daily Record reported that two nursing homes reported more than 100 positive cases this week, which may account for the spike in the county's numbers.

Lebanon County's cases also grew by 25 in reporting on Saturday and Sunday, while Perry County saw an increase of four cases over two days to bring its total to 83 cases and five deaths.

Elsewhere in the region, Franklin County saw seven new COVID-19 positives, Adams County had five, Bedford County had three new cases and Blair County had two new cases. All other counties in the region did not report an increase in positive cases.

Over the weekend, there were 24 new deaths reported - 20 reported Saturday and four new deaths reported Sunday. In the region, the number of deaths only rose in Dauphin County (which saw two new deaths) and York County (which had one new death).

Though the beginning of the previous week had seen positive cases rise statewide by less than 400 new cases each day, the state has since seen increases of more than 400 new cases each day. Though reporting is often lower in Sunday's report due to data being collected on Saturday, there were 464 new cases statewide Sunday, and 504 new cases the day before that.
