In the latest report from the state Department of Health, Cumberland County saw nine new cases of COVID-19 as positive tests continued to rise for the majority of the southcentral region.

In Tuesday's report, most counties in the region, except for Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata and Mifflin counties, reported an increase in the number of coronavirus cases.

The highest increase was in Dauphin County, which saw 41 new cases tabulated from Monday's data. The county also had two new reported deaths.

For days, York County had reported the highest increases, and while it was lower than Dauphin County in Tuesday's report, the county is still seeing a larger spike than most of the region. York had 30 new confirmed and probable positives Tuesday, as well as three new reported deaths.

The state Department of Health did not update its facility-level data for nursing homes, but in an overall look across counties, Dauphin County saw an increase of four resident infections, one staff infection and two deaths at its previously reported nine affected long-term care facilities. York County has 10 affected facilities, and among those it saw an increase in eight resident cases and two staff cases.

Cumberland County's long-term care facility numbers didn't change overall, which could mean the latest increases were not located in nursing facilities. According to ZIP code level data updated Tuesday, the 17050 ZIP code in Silver Spring and Hampden townships has seen the highest increase with 12 cases since last Friday, and about half of that increase was reported in the 17055 Mechanicsburg area ZIP code and the 17257 Shippensburg ZIP code.

Lebanon County, which remains the only county in the state that is not scheduled to yet move to the green phase of Gov. Tom Wolf's reopening plan, saw 11 new positive cases, as well as one new death.

Of the region, Cumberland County had the fourth highest increase, along with Franklin County, which also saw nine new cases Tuesday.
