Good afternoon. Here is our latest update on covert 19 in Pennsylvania. As of 12 a.m. This morning, we have 443 new cases of Cove in 19. This spring’s our statewide total to 74,385 Pennsylvanians who have tested positive for covert 19 in all 67 counties. Tragically, 5886 deaths have now been attributed to covert 19 statewide. We are estimating that 70% of the people that have had Cove in 19 have now recovered. We are aware of now 19 confirmed cases of the pediatric condition M I S C or multi system inflammatory syndrome in Children as defined by the CDC. 15 cases remain under investigation. The Children impacted range in age from 10 months of age to 18 years of age, with a median age of nine years that they’re being cared for in our Children’s hospitals and other fantastic hospitals. In Pennsylvania today, I would like to echo Governor wolves thanks to all Pennsylvanians who have worked so hard to keep us safe. Those on the front lines and those who did their part by staying home almost overnight, our entire world changed what seemed like a mysterious far away respiratory virus. Isolated toe. One part of China quickly wrecked havoc across the globe. When this virus reached our shores, Pennsylvanians rose to the challenge. It has been difficult, and so many have lost so much. But we have saved countless lives while we wait for better testing and for the development of a safe and effective vaccine. However, as the governor was emphasizing, our work is not yet done. As our state moves towards reopening, we all need to remember to stay alert. If you feel sick, please stay home. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with covert 19 please get tested. And remember, my mass protects you and your mask protects me. And if we’re all wearing masks than the community is protected, as the governor has said, we have bought ourselves time to build up our health care capacity in our health care system, to handle a surge of critical patients and to save lives. Our work continues to protect residents, especially are vulnerable patients in long term care living facilities. Today we issued to notice for nursing homes, personal care homes and assisted living facilities that are moving to the green phase to further prevent outbreaks within these vulnerable populations. Ongoing restrictions, including a visitation, will remain in place for at least 28 days after respective facilities county goes to green. This is an important step to continue to protect those vulnerable residents. But I know it’s just really challenging both for the families who have loved ones in these facilities and for the for the patients themselves in these facilities. So we’ll be constantly working to see how we might adjust that in terms of visitation. But for now, the visitation is restricted. We are also adding a new tool to our website today for Pennsylvania residents to see how their county is doing in terms of our reopening metrics. Thes metrics include either a stable or decreasing or low confirmed case counts over the last two weeks that contacts of cases are being monitored. The contact Tracing that the governor mentioned that the positivity rate of the test for the virus itself is less than 10% in the last 14 days that hospital beds usage is 90% or lower for the regional population in the county has been and yellow for at least 14 days. It’s not a guarantee, but at least 14 days, because that’s the the possible incubation period of the virus. This tool can be found in the Pennsylvania data section of our website it health dot p a dot dove. Now here are my daily reminders. Please continue to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, so the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice. Please use hand sanitizer liberally.

Clean surfaces frequently.
