Warren County set a daily record with three new COVID-19 cases in a single day Aug. 21.

The county has already matched that total twice in September. Warren gained three new cases on both Sept. 2 and Sept. 3, with five of the six cases listed as probables.

Warren County’s cumulative case count now stands at 34, with 23 confirmed and 11 probable. There was one new confirmed positive and two probables on Sept. 2, and three probables Sept. 3.

Warren County still maintains the lowest cumulative cases per 100,000 total in the state with 86.1. McKean County (100.1) is the next lowest county.

The county’s cumulative case count also includes those cases the state considers “recovered.”

According to the Department of Health, 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.”

Warren County’s lone death was recorded on June 28.
