As of Monday, September 13, a total of 3,114 positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in Chester County since the beginning of the pandemic in early 2020. This is an increase of 108 cases in the past week, which is about half of the increase from the previous week. Of the 3,114 total cases, 254 are currently active, which is a decrease of seven active cases since last week. “Active” cases are determined by the amount of time since diagnosis. At 14 days out from a positive test, cases are considered inactive or recovered, and sometimes seem to cause a discrepancy between “total cases” and “active” cases. The number of inactive or recovered cases is 2,832. Total COVID-related deaths in the county have increased to 58. The county also reports 34.66% of local residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination, with 29.05% having received both doses, or series completion.
