Other Notes and Recommendations:

  • The significant increases in Covid-19 cases across the country continue.
  • Outbreaks appear to be driven by behaviors – people not wearing masks and not practicing social distancing. Keep in mind that we know how to limit or prevent the transmission of the Covid-19 virus. Do the right thing:
    • Be safe. Wear a mask.
    • Wherever you are, practice social distancing.
  • The simplest safety measures, no matter where you are (like 4th of July picnics), greatly decrease the chance of virus spread:
    • Practice good hygiene.
    • Wash your hands frequently, don’t touch your face, and cover coughs and sneezes.
    • Wear a mask.
    • Maintain minimum distance of 6 feet from others.
  • If you feel sick, stay home.

Note: BHS reports its data only. PA DOH data and other sources may be different due to differences in data collection and format.
