The PA Department of Health has not released data of recovered cases. The data of new numbers should be viewed with the realization that aside from the deaths that have resulted, there have also been recoveries.
"We are not able to track recovery of the 30,000 patients or more with COVID-19 in Pennsylvania. 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.
Non-essential businesses that are still open should be reported to your local law enforcement agency’s NON-emergency number. DO NOT CALL 911 to report these businesses.
PPE supplies can be donated through Westmoreland County Department of Public Safety.
