Coronavirus

There was only one COVID-19 death statewide and 11 additional COVID-19 across Cambria, Somerset, Bedford and Blair counties in Monday’s update by the Department of Health.

Cambria County had one case removed from its total, Bedford had no new cases, Somerset added four cases and Blair added eight new cases.

When cases are removed, the health department said, it is usually because they were initially reported in the wrong county.

Reports on Mondays have included fewer cases and deaths because there is less testing done on weekends and death reports may be delayed.
