The state added 2,875 new cases as of midnight, bringing the statewide total to 214,871, the Pennsylvania Department of Health said in a press release.
This is the 29th time the state has reported more than 1,000 new cases of the virus in a day.

Health Secretary Rachel Levine yesterday emphasized that in-person voting remains safe, and recommended that voters bring a "Covid kit" -- a mask, a pen, and hand sanitizer -- to the polls. She said any voter under quarantine should contact Pennsylvania's Department of State to make voting arrangements.
