SATURDAY P.M. Update: Potter Co. Coronavirus Case Count Grows

Potter Country Today


There have been 16 more confirmed COVID-19 coronavirus cases in Potter County over the past 72 hours, increasing the total count to 134, with five COVID-related deaths. 

Nine of the cases were confirmed between Friday and Saturday. Five are residents of the Coudersport area, and one each are from the Austin, Harrison Township, Shinglehouse and Ulysses area. Active case count in Potter County — those diagnosed over the past two weeks — stands at approximately 60.

Also between Friday and Saturday, there were 61 more confirmed cases in Tioga County; 49 more cases and two more deaths in Allegany County, N.Y.; 29 more cases in Cattaraugus County, N.Y.; 9 more cases in McKean; 18 more cases in Clinton; 12 more cases in Elk; 80 more cases in Lycoming County; and one more case in Cameron Coun

ty. Entering Saturday, area numbers were as follows: Cattaraugus, 809 cases and 22 deaths; Allegany, 834 cases and 43 fatalities; Potter, 134 cases, 3 deaths; Tioga, 719 cases, 7 fatalities; McKean, 341 cases, 3 fatalities; Lycoming, 1,660 cases, 35 deaths; Cameron, 18 cases; Clinton, 508cases, 10 fatalities; and Elk, 419 cases, 3 deaths.

As Pennsylvania experiences a resurgence of COVID-19 cases, Gov. Tom Wolf this week announced four new mitigation efforts:

  •     A new masking order has been put into effect. Masks are required to be worn indoors and outdoors if you are away from your home. When outdoors, a mask must be worn if you are not able to remain physically distant (at least 6 feet away) from someone not in your household the entire time you are outdoors. When indoors, masks will now be required even if you are physically distant from members not in your household. This means that even if you are able to be 6 feet apart, you will need to wear a mask while inside if with people other than members of your household. This order applies to every indoor facility, including homes, retail establishments, gyms, doctors’ gyms, public transportation, and anywhere food is prepared, packaged or served. More details on the mask requirements, including frequently-asked questions, can be found here.
  •     Hospitals are to work through health care coalitions and other partnerships to prepare for how they will support one another in the event that a hospital becomes overwhelmed. Hospitals should also be working to move up elective procedures necessary to protect a person’s health and prepare to suspend them if our health care system becomes strained. Pennsylvania will run out of intensive care beds in December if ICU admissions continue at the current rate.
  •     Anyone who visits from another state must have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering Pennsylvania. If someone cannot get a test or chooses not to, he or she must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvanians visiting other states are required to have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to their return to the commonwealth or to quarantine for 14 days upon return to Pennsylvania. This order does not apply to people who commute to and from another state for work or medical treatment. To learn more on the new travel restrictions, click here.
  •     Colleges and universities should have adequate capacity for isolation and quarantine and should be prepared to enforce violations of established policies such as mask wearing and physical distancing. Every college and university should test all students at the beginning of each term, when returning to campus after a break and to have regular screening testing throughout the semester/term.

Meanwhile, three testing sites for the COVID-19 coronavirus remain available in Coudersport. In addition to the testing site at UPMC Cole for physician-referred patients, tests are also being administered at Buchanan Brothers Pharmacy (visit the website here or call 1-800-635-8611 to complete an eligibility assessment) and Rite Aid Pharmacy (visit the website here or call 814-274-0439).

More and more people are wearing masks, face coverings. It's obvious they dont always work.

When I go in stores of course! Never will in my own home! This is so laughable and at the same time sad that one even would suggest in your own home.

@6:08, read the guidance. Wear a mask in your home when someone that is not an immediate member of the household is there. Just like when you go to a store.

Wonder how many new cases there will be after the GT gathering??? That was stupid!

Well they should close bear and deer season, only residents of that county should be aloud to hunt. We all these people coming here from high infection areas, that be one good way to help. The count will most likely go ay up.

Can someone answer this question? When they give the total cases of covid for mckean county or potter county is that the total from the beginning or is it the total of people that now have it?

If these masks are to protect us so much. Why are nursing homes and jails full of Covid? Sounds to be like democratic control....

Do me a favor all you fake ass rural "patriots" try giving a shit about your neighbors and fellow countrymen just a wee bit. You're disgusting.

Stop blaming it on people coming from out of the area! Galeton had NO cases all the way up until 2 weeks ago and all of a sudden they have 20 cases! Know why? People let their guard down and stopped wearing masks! Masks do work if properly worn! If only one person wears a mask and the person who believes they are not sick is touching things and so on may tranmit the virus if not wearing a mask and coughs or sneezes! If the person who is wearing the mask touches where the other person did then touch their face or phone or credit card etc not realizing what they did before washing their hands or using sanitizer, just contaminated themselves with the virus! COMMON SENSE!!

See so many people with masks over their chin, 1/2 over their mouths with their big noses hanging out...I do believe wearing a mask helps prevent spreading ( a current) illness BUT (as the 'experts' initially stated) wearing masks with warm, dampness actually, attracts viruses where they multiply rapidly. These 'experts' change their narratives, constantly. Should we trust them & their shoddy tests, drugs & fast-tracked-vaccines? Nooooooo.

I'm really proud of some of you standing up and speaking out. Keep up the great work! We won't back down and won't deal with ignorance any more!
