There has now been nine straight days of over 1,000 daily cases of COVID-19 for Pennsylvania.
The state’s top health official says it appears that we’re now in a fall resurgence of the coronavirus.
“We believe that we’re at the start of the fall resurgence,” Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “We have been talking about a potential fall resurgence and preparing for that for months.”
She also said that the state is in better position today to handle the virus than it was in the spring.
“We have so much more resources than we had in the past,” Levine said. “We have significantly increased testing, and we have better contact tracing. In addition our healthcare system is better prepared and we have more (personal protective equipment) than we had in the spring.”
Levine also said the state has no plans to implement any shutdown orders at this time.
“Working through containment and other efforts, we have no plans to change any of the mitigation efforts we have put in place.”
She said it’s important to continue wearing masks, washing hands, and practice social distancing.
