York County confirms first two positive cases of coronavirus

Health officials have confirmed the first two cases of COVID-19 in York County.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health announced 37 new positive cases on Wednesday, bringing up the state’s total to 133.

Following the announcement, the York County Commissioners released a statement notifying the community that it will be expecting more cases as news develops.

“We encourage the public to not be alarmed by this development as we work with public health officials and community partners to control the spread,” the county Office of the Commissioners wrote in a press release on Wednesday. “These are the first confirmed cases in York County, but they will not be our last. It is a clear reminder of how important efforts to limit further spread in our community are.”

The two York County residents that tested positive are linked and are currently recovering at home and have not been hospitalized, the office said.

The county recently activated its multiagency coordination group, which the office said will operate the county’s emergency operations center to allow for a quicker response from federal, state and local agencies.
