WARREN, Pa. – Warren County was back in the double-digits for new confirmed COVID-19 cases Friday, just a day after registering the first single-digit increase in five days.
According to Saturday’s Pennsylvania Department of Health COVID-19 Dashboard data update, there were 28 new confirmed cases reported Friday. That brings the Warren County cumulative total to 362 confirmed cases, an increase of 302 confirmed cases since Oct. 31.
With Friday’s 28 cases, Warren County has a total of 90 new confirmed cases in December. It took until Nov. 24 for the county to reach 100 new confirmed cases for the month. The county had 100 more in the final week of the month. The county would reach 100 new cases through the first five days of December, if even half of the current average of 22.5 new confirmed cases per day for the month holds true.
According to the Dashboard ZIP Code data, the Warren (16365) code now has 147 cumulative confirmed cases, up 44 from Tuesday. Sugar Grove (16350) now stands at 27, up five from Tuesday. Bear Lake (16402) increased from 12 to 18, while Columbus (16405) remained at five and Russell (16345) stayed at 18.

Sheffield (16347) and Clarendon (16313) each gained a case and have 14 and 17 cumulative confirmed cases, respectively.
Irvine (16329), the last ZIP in the county to report a case, has at least one confirmed. The Dashboard does not list specific case numbers if there are between one and four cases for that code.
No new COVID deaths have been reported in the county since June 28.
The cumulative case count, up to 412 with probable cases, includes those cases the state considers “recovered.”
A case is considered recovered “if a case has not been reported as a death, and it is more than 30 days past the date of their first positive test (or onset of symptoms) then an individual is considered recovered,” according to the Department of Health.
