Pennsylvania COVID-19 Early Warning Monitoring Dashboard Update for Dec. 25 - Dec. 31: Case Increases Near 40,400; Percent Positivity at 15.0% and All 67 Counties with Substantial Transmission

Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine released a weekly status update detailing the state's mitigation efforts based on the COVID-19 Early Warning Monitoring System Dashboard, highlighting a seven-day case increase of 40,407, a statewide percent positivity of 15.0% and all 67 counties with substantial transmission status.

The dashboard is designed to provide early warning signs of factors that affect the state's mitigation efforts. The data available on the early warning monitoring dashboard includes week-over-week case differences, incidence rates, test percent-positivity, and rates of hospitalizations, ventilations and emergency room visits tied to COVID-19. This week's update compares the period of December 25 - December 31 to the previous seven days, December 18 - December 24.

"Although the decrease in our statewide positivity rate is small, it is still encouraging," Gov. Wolf said. "The sacrifices Pennsylvanians took over the holidays to celebrate differently than usual and with people inside your household are signs of our continued resilience and drive to fight against COVID-19. We must continue these best practices to stay safe and keep our friends, family and loved ones safe while COVID-19 remains a threat in our communities."
