WARREN, Pa. – Warren County has had at least one reported COVID-19 case through the first seven days of November, according to Pennsylvania Department of Health data.

The county’s cumulative case count has increased by 14 in that 7-day span. There are now 73 confirmed and 12 probable cases, up from 60 confirmed and 11 probable at the end of October.

Seven of the 14 cases were reported on Nov. 1 (three) and Nov. 2 (four). The 14 new cases are more than half the total for October (27).

Data for Sunday, Nov. 8, will be released during the DOH’s Monday COVID update.

The cumulative case count stretches back to March 24, when the county’s first positive case was announced. No additional cases were reported until May 12. There were two cases in May, four in June and seven in July.

The county has one reported death.

The cumulative case count 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.
