Signage on numerous businesses in downtown Mechanicsburg ask customers to wear a mask or not enter if they may potentially be sick with Covid-19.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health reported an additional 4 cases of COVID-19 for Cumberland County in Monday's report, marking the third straight day of single-digit case counts after a run of five straight double digit days.

Monday, a typically slow reporting day coming off a weekend, featured low case count totals for the state and southcentral region.

The southcentral region reported 55 new positives in Monday's report, the lowest day for the region since July 19. York County reported 23 new cases (fourth highest total in the state Monday) and Dauphin County reported 13. They were the only two counties in the region with double-digit counts for new cases.

Statewide, the Health Department reported 384 new positives and no new deaths Monday. This is the second day since mid-March in which no additional deaths were reported by the state. That day, Aug. 3, was also a Monday.

It's also the lowest number of newly reported cases in the state since July 13, which was also a Monday. But, the case counts leading up to that Monday and the case counts following that Monday continued at a high pace.

The Department of Health noted that numbers released today do not include new cases from Philadelphia due to reporting delays. Philadelphia's current seven-day average for new cases is about 120.

In the past 14 days, 143 new cases have been reported in Cumberland County, giving the county a per capita rate of 56.44 per 100,000 people for the 14-day period. 

Cumberland County's 7-day rolling average of new cases now sits at 10.43.
