Covid-19 5

Numerous businesses in downtown Carlisle have signs asking people to wear a mask and not to enter if they show any symptoms of COVID-19.

An additional 23 cases of COVID-19 in Cumberland County were reported by the state Department of Health in Tuesday's report, continuing the county’s trend of rising case counts. No new deaths were reported for the county.

The county has now added an average of 17 cases per day in the past week, a trend-line that that now exceeds the previous spike in late April and early May.

Three of the last five days have seen 20 or more new cases of COVID-19 reported in the county; only 10 days of 20-plus new case reports for Cumberland County have occurred during the entire course of the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s pandemic reporting.

The rise in case counts isn't limited to Cumberland County, with 26 new cases reported Tuesday in Dauphin County, 22 in Franklin County; and 14 in York County (plus 3 additional deaths).

The Health Department has also begun reporting the positivity rate of COVID-19 tests based on the full volume of testing, with counties whose positivity rates exceed 5% being considered on a bad trend, according to the DOH.

For Cumberland County, 3.8% of all COVID-19 tests administered in the week ending July 23 came back positive. York and Dauphin, however, are edging into the danger zone with positivity rates of 5.4 and 5.3%, respectively.

The Health Department cited 14 counties with a “concerning” percentage of tests coming back positive, according to the Associated Press. Those counties are scattered throughout the state. They are Beaver, Armstrong, Franklin, Mercer, Allegheny, Lawrence, Chester, Philadelphia, Fayatte, York, Dauphin, Delaware, Bedford and Greene.

Statewide, the department reported an additional 1,120 cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday with 24 deaths, bringing Pennsylvania’s total known death toll from the pandemic to 7,146.

The Philadelphia and Pittsburgh regions accounted for 618 of Tuesday's cases (55%), 206 out of the six-county Pittsburgh region and 412 out of the four-county Philadelphia region.
