Pennsylvania is experiencing a resurgence of Covid-19, but numbers are still much lower than the initial wave in the spring, state officials said Monday.
The statewide positivity rate is 4.3%, and 21 counties have a positivity rate greater than 5%.
Pennsylvania reported at least 1,103 new cases Monday– the 14th consecutive day in which the state has recorded over 1,000 new cases in a single day.
At least 841 individuals are hospitalized with the virus and Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine says she expects that number to continue to rise.
Data compiled from voluntarily responses submitted to the state Covid-19 contact tracing app showed 50% of people who tested positive for Covid-19 were at a restaurant 14 days prior to experiencing symptoms.
