TUESDAY P.M. Update: Twelve More Cases In Potter County

Potter County Today
February 23rd, 2021

There were 12 more COVID-19 coronavirus cases reported among Potter County residents between Sunday and Tuesday. Since the pandemic began, there have been 912 cases and 21 COVID-related deaths in the county. 

More important than historical data is the Pa. Dept. of Health (DOH) tracking of “active” cases, which at last report stood at 46 in Potter County. DOH considers a case to be active, and the victim contagious, if a positive test result occurred over the past 14 days. 

Breakdown of the active cases was as follows: Coudersport area, 27; Shinglehouse, 8; Roulette, 5; Austin, 3; Galeton, Ulysses and Sabinsville, 1 each. U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that the actual number of COVID-19 infections in a locale is likely four or more times higher than the detected cases. 

Most recently, public health officials are cautioning that new, more contagious strains of the coronavirus have been detected in a growing number of states. New variants will likely prolong the pandemic, extending health and safety restrictions and reinforcing the need for preventive measures for several months.

DOH also reported that there were 153 more COVID-19 coronavirus cases confirmed across counties bordering Potter between Sunday and Tuesday: McKean, 10 more cases and one more death; Tioga, six cases; Clinton, 15 cases; Lycoming, 61 cases and three deaths; Allegany (N.Y.), 11 cases; and Cattaraugus (N.Y.), 31 cases.

Vaccine supplies have been arriving slowly, resulting in frustration for some local residents who are unable to schedule appointments, despite being informed that they are eligible. 

Entering Tuesday, some 449 Potter County residents have received the full two-shot dosage and 518 have been given the initial dose. Over the past 48 hours, there were 15 first doses and 14 booster shots administered. 

Most of those who have been vaccinated are front-line health care providers, residents of skilled care homes, emergency responders, residents 65 and older, and others with underlying health conditions that increase their risk of contracting COVID-19. 

UPMC Cole has announced that residents age 85 and older in designated high-incidence areas are being contacted by phone to schedule appointments.

What is the "active" count for mckean county, does anyone know?

Herd immunity is 11,760. So get vaccinated when you can.

Yes... get the vaccine. It still doesn't prevent covid. It doesn't prevent you from giving it to someone else. It might lessen your symptoms. How long does it last? Is it yearly? Is it effective against the new strain? Is it more like the flu vaccine? Way to many questions unanswered. If I can still pass it onto someone and it doesn't prevent me from getting it why would I?

Please get your shots so the media has nothing to talk about and the whining stops. I do not understand why so many people believe the non-sense about getting the shot but that the so called experts are not sure if it will stop the spread of covid. that is like saying all other vaccinations are just as worthless. If you have received this vaccination you should not have to wear masks etc. If the so called experts are saying you still do this is a control measurer to keep people scared Why get the vaccine if nothing changes? When will people start thinking for themselves doing their own research on this.

8:32, One of the hallmarks of dangerously confident stupid people, is the consistent belief that they have found, through their own “research” a great solution to a very complex problem, that all the experts have somehow overlooked. So, how about, once every scientist on earth quits, we’ll come and see what you think.😉

9:35, same goes for you. Your “research” is utterly worthless to this conversation. Thanks.

Isn't this getting a little old now. Everyone will eventually be exposed to the virus unless you live under a rock. I had it I survived. Stop spreading fear and get on with your lives.

1106... your one of those sheep that wants the government to hold your hand and tell you how to live your life... you like to get on here and talk like a big smart guy but in reality you probably live off the system and looking forward to that government check... baahhhh

12:21, actually I couldn't care less about 'the government', and I don't have any fear of them at all, because I'm pretty sure they're completely ineffectual, regardless of party affiliation. Hillbilly mouth breathers, like yourself, are a much bigger threat than "the government", and that's why I call you out every chance I get. Additionally, I don't just 'talk like a big smart guy', I am a big smart guy. I definitely don't live off the system(whatever that means), and I could buy and sell your sorry ass, any day of the week and twice on Sunday. So check yourself dummy...you offer nothing positive to the conversation, as usual.😂

We all need to just do what we're told and just get our shots. We shouldn't question anything our government tells us because, after all, they're just looking out for all of us. I don't know where these conspiracy theories come from, but don't believe any of them. Our government is looking out for us. Joe Biden is a natural born leader and we should all be on our knees thanking the Lord that he is now our President.

Ok 2-24-21 4:30 You must be really out of your mind Biden has done nothing at all but sign stupid bills putting people out of work. Trump cared about America as should the stupids in the White House now they are going to ruin America so sad to. I would not listen to Biden or Harris no shot here sorry

6:05, what an interesting dichotomy; such a learned medical professional, saying such remarkably stupid shit. That’s a really head scratcher, I’d really love to learn more about you. I’m just kidding, I couldn’t care less about you. We’re done here.
