WARREN, Pa. – For the first time in nearly a week, Warren County had less than 10 new confirmed COVID-19 cases reported.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s COVID-19 Dashboard data update Friday, there were nine new confirmed cases reported in the county Thursday. It’s the first day with only a single-digit increase since Nov. 28.

The county has had two days in that span with more than 30 new cases, and another with 20.

Warren County’s case count has risen drastically since the start of November. There were 212 cases in that month alone, after the county had just 60 total from March through October. Through the first three days of December, there have been 63 cases.

There are 13 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, according to the dashboard. None are in the adult ICU or are on a ventilator.

June 28 remains the only date with a death reported in the county.

The cumulative case count, up to 369 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.
