Health Department Director Dr. Debra Bogen Wednesday July 8, 2020 announced that a new, two-week order has been issued to stem the spread of coronavirus cases in the county. The new order rescinds the June 28 and July 2 orders and takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 10, 2020.
It has been a while since we have distributed a COVID Update from the Borough of Castle Shannon.
Due to the recent uptick in cases reported, locally, regionally, and nationwide, we are compelled to issue warnings again, to practice all the safety measures designed to keep the numbers in check.
The latest mandate from the Commonwealth level is to remind residents to wear masks when in close proximity to others, and certainly when visiting businesses. The press release is attached and the order is embedded therein.
The data reflected in these updates include information reported to the department in the past 24 hours as well as data since March 14 when the first case was reported in the county. For information relative to number of cases by date the test was taken and deaths by date of death, visit the county’s dashboard at http://alleghenycounty.us/coronavirus. It is updated each day by noon.
COVID Cases – 1,551 (+6)
This number includes 1,474 confirmed cases and 77 probable cases.
