The Coroner’s report of deaths is an accurate report of the deaths that actually occurred within Westmoreland County, whether that be within the hospital, a nursing home, or residence. The reason the PA DOH is reporting more deaths is because under a pandemic their reporting is done via residency. Therefore even if the death occurred in a hospital or nursing home in another county, as long as that individual still maintains a street address in Westmoreland County it gets added to our County’s total.

No state is able to do that and so we will want to track the recovery from patients in the hospital, and we’re working with an organization called PHC4 to get that data - the hospital discharge data," Dr. Levine said.
The PA Department of Health has provided a map that breaks down cases by ZIP code not municipality. This may cause confusion for some Westmoreland County residents because one ZIP code can cover multiple sections of our 65 municipalities within the county. It is important to realize that principal when viewing the map and related data.

A probable case is a person who has symptoms of COVID-19 and was a close contact or otherwise linked to a confirmed case of COVID-19 but who did not have testing done. A confirmed case is a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. Both confirmed and probable cases represent the Positive Case daily update that we post. Probable cases are not tested in an effort to preserve tests for those who are demonstrating symptoms but cannot be contact traced to a confirmed positive case.
