While most counties in the southcentral region are reporting a small number of new cases — including Cumberland County — York County saw another massive spike in COVID-19 cases.

Monday's report from the state Department of Health is usually small due to the data being collected on Sunday. And while the state only reported three new deaths overall and 456 new cases statewide, York County had 55 of those new cases. York County now has 1,351 confirmed and probable cases.

The state Department of Health has not updated its facility-level data for nursing homes, but the York Daily Record reported recently that two nursing homes have seen an outbreak of more than 100 cases, which could be the reason York County is seeing a spike. The department reported that in an overall look at long-term care facilities in York County, there are 10 affected facilities, 117 residents infected with the coronavirus, 16 staff infections and 18 deaths.

In comparison, Cumberland County has seen 15 facilities affected by COVID-19 with 317 residents and 71 staff infections, along with 68 deaths. Cumberland County's total cases sits at 792 positives and 61 deaths. Not all residents of long-term care facilities are considered legal residents of the county by health officials' standards of counting for COVID-19, which is why the number of deaths and potentially the number of cases don't align in the state's calculations.

Dauphin County also saw a significant rise of 48 new cases in Monday's report, just a few days after it entered the green phase. That's another rise in the number of new cases despite an otherwise slow reporting day, and the county now has 1,810 cases and 120 deaths.

Dauphin County has previously reported outbreaks at long-term care facilities, including at least one that involved aid from the Pennsylvania National Guard. The state Department of Health reported that since the pandemic began in Pennsylvania in March, Dauphin County has had nine facilities affected by COVID-19 that has involved 551 residents and 127 staff infected with the coronavirus and 97 deaths.
