WARREN, Pa. – Nine new COVID-19 cases were reported in Warren County Saturday, the sixth time in the last two weeks the county has had more than five new cases.

According to updated Pennsylvania Department of Health Dashboard data, Warren County had seven new confirmed COVID-19 cases and two probable cases. That brings the county’s cumulative total to 163 cases, 141 confirmed and 22 probable.

Warren County has had 92 new cases in November so far, 81 confirmed and 11 probable.

From Monday, Nov. 16 through Saturday, Nov. 21, Warren County’s case count has increased by 52, nearly a 50 percent increase over the cumulative total case from March 24 through Nov. 15. Warren County had 40 new cases from Nov. 1 through Nov. 15.

According to the DOH COVID Dashboard ZIP code data, the Warren (16365) code has increased by 11 new cases (nine confirmed and two probable) since Wednesday.
