PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Allegheny County Health Department announced Thursday that there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania at this time.

Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania Department of Health says it will soon begin its own testing for the virus.

UPMC officials said on Tuesday that they have not had any cases in any of the communities they serve in New York and Maryland, or internationally.

“If that changes, we have been putting measures in place since early January to quickly respond,” UPMC Chief Quality Officer Tami Minnier said.

UPMC is in the process of developing its own testing as well.

“This is obviously a priority as we’d be able to test more quickly if we do it here within our organization,” Dr. Snyder said. “I do not have a time yet as to when that would be available. Presently, we are course collaborating with our colleagues at the Allegheny County Health Department.”

Like federal health agencies, the Allegheny County Health Department is also recommending the public to avoid all non-essential travel to China, Italy, Iran and South Korea, as well as extreme caution if traveling to Hong Kong or Japan.
