County Case Counts to Date
Each day the Department of Health
provides updated case, testing, and death information. Archived
information dating back to the beginning of the pandemic is also
available. Case counts are displayed by the date that the cases were
first reported to the PA-NEDSS surveillance system. Case counts by date
of report can vary significantly from day to day for a variety of
reasons. In addition to changes due to actual changes in disease
incidence, trends are strongly influenced by testing patterns (who gets
tested and why), testing availability, lab analysis backlogs, lab
reporting delays, new labs joining our electronic laboratory reporting
system, mass screenings, etc. Trends need to be sustained for seven
to 14 days before any conclusions can be made regarding the progress of
the pandemic. Source: Pennsylvania National Electronic Disease
Surveillance System (PA-NEDSS) as of 9:00 PM on 8/1/2021.

Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome Data
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) is a
condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the
heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. We
do not yet know what causes MIS-C. Many children with MIS-C had the
virus that causes COVID-19, or had been around someone with COVID-19.
