HARRISBURG- The Pennsylvania Department of Health today confirmed as of 12:00 a.m., September 7, that there are 547 additional positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 139,863.

The percentage of recovered cases today is 82 percent. Individuals who have recovered is determined using a calculation, similar to what is being done by several other states. If a case has not been reported as a death, and it is more than 30 days past the date of their first positive test (or onset of symptoms) then an individual is considered recovered.

The state DOH said in an email that a person being retested does not count as a new case, “If someone tests positive, and then has later positive tests, they are only counted as that one positive case.”

Lycoming County has had 560 positive cases to date, (528 confirmed and 32 probable), zero new today; Clinton 160 (143 confirmed and 17 probable) one new today; Sullivan ten cases (five confirmed and five probable) and Tioga 49 cases (40 confirmed and nine probable).
