In statistics reported by the Pennsylvania Department of Health over the weekend, Greene County attributes one death to COVID-19.

Greene County’s previously-recorded COVID-19 death in early May was reclassified after the state switched to a different electronic data collection system. The new system, still in place, lists deaths by county of residence rather than the county where the death took place.

Additional details on the death in Greene, including when and where the death occurred, were not immediately available. Information released by state officials did show that the person was not a resident of a nursing home or other long-term care facility.

Washington County reported 16 new COVID-19 cases over the weekend, bringing its total number of cases since March to 747, with no additional deaths.

Greene County’s three additional cases bring the total to 108.

Fayette County recorded 21 new cases over the weekend for a total of 408.

Allegheny County’s 8,242 cases are a result of 154 new reported cases. New cases range in age from 3 weeks to 94 years with a median age of 45 years. The date of positive tests ranges from July 7 through Aug. 1.
