There were only 11 new cases of COVID-19 reported for Warren County on Friday, but another three deaths were added to the tally.

The death toll rose from 65 to 68.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health reported 1,839 total cases for the county on Friday, up from 1,828 on Thursday.

Of those, 1,527 were confirmed cases and 312 were probable.

There were two more COVID-positive patients at Warren General Hospital in Friday’s data, with 25 patients. None of those were on ventilators and none were in intensive care.

At the Rouse Home, 87 of the facility’s 102 residents have recovered from COVID-19. Another 11 are negative, according to Marketing Director Kelsey Angove. Only four remain in the COVID quarantine unit.

There have been two deaths in the facility since Jan. 5.

“The Rouse Home has not had a resident or staff member test positive in over one week and we expect to have no one on our COVID unit by the end of this week,” Angove said.

At Kinzua Healthcare and Rehabilitation, there were eight cases among residents and three among caregivers as of Thursday, according to Guardian Healthcare. The facility went through round one vaccinations on Thursday, Jan. 7. The second round clinic is set for Thursday, Jan. 28.

County-wide, in the last 30 days, there have been less than 1,000 new cases. There were 888 total cases as of Dec. 16.

The department considers cases that do not result in death to be recovered after 30 days.

Warren County would have as many as 951 active cases by that calculation.

There have been 4,692.4 cases in the county per 100,000 population.

Forest County exceeded 8,000 per 100,000 in Friday’s information — with 8,003.3. That remains the third highest rate in the state behind Mifflin and Union counties.
