Posted

Here is a look at the numbers by county in Pennsylvania according to numbers released Sunday by the state Department of Health, including the number of cases and day-over-day change, negative tests and day-over-day change, and number of deaths with the day-over-day change.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health today confirmed 623 additional positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 62,234 in all 67 counties. It was the lowest percentage increase over the previous day, about 1 percent, since the start of the pandemic.

The state also reported only 15 new deaths, one of the lowest daily increases in weeks, for 4,418 total.

We are listing the county numbers by their Department of Health regions, to group them in the way the state is looking at them for possible reductions in restrictions from the coronavirus.
