The state death toll is now 2,444, up 26 from 2,418 on Saturday.

“As we see the number of new COVID-19 cases continuously change across the state that does not mean we can stop practicing social distancing,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. 

“We must continue to stay home to protect ourselves, our families and our community. If you must go out, please make as few trips as possible and wear a mask to protect not only yourself, but others. We need all Pennsylvanians to continue to heed these efforts to protect our vulnerable Pennsylvanians, our health care workers and frontline responders.” 

191,374 people have tested negative for COVID-19 so far in Pennsylvania.

The 25-49 age group has been affected the most out of any demographic.

38% of the Pennsylvania cases fell within the 25-49 age range.

But most of the hospitalizations and deaths have occurred within the 65 or older age bracket.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has a digital map of all the cases across the state to get a better grasp of the density and locations of the positives.
