Three people are now hospitalized: two in Montgomery County and one in Monroe County.

There are no cases in Allegheny County.

“We have more people in Pennsylvania that live in the southeast and so it’s not surprising that we’ll see that,” Pa. Secretary of Health Rachel Levine said. “But we will not be surprised to see cases in other places.

“Presumptive” means the State Department of Health results are positive — but they are waiting on final confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control.


Meanwhile, in Delaware County, officials have declared a state of emergency to combat the coronavirus cases.

This is the county where the first case was confirmed last week.

Health officials there say they have the situation under control.

The state is now encouraging people to cancel events with groups of people yet.

City officials are advising people who are older and may have underlying health conditions to avoid the crowds.
