PENNSYLVANIA — Four more states have been added to Pennsylvania's travel quarantine list. Pennsylvanians who travel to Delaware, Iowa, Kansas, and Oklahoma should quarantine upon return, health officials said. That's in addition to the 15 states that were already on the list.
The states's travel quarantine list now includes 19 states that are currently experiencing increasing levels of COVID-19.
Travelers who visit the following states should quarantine for 14 days upon return, Pennsylvania health officials say:
Pennsylvania's coronavirus case total reached 94,689 Saturday, after the Department of Health reported 813 additional positive cases.
Infections continue to rise in the western part of the state, including in Allegheny County, where there were 215 cases reported Saturday. The state's COVID-19 death toll now stands at 6,897.
Saturday's total was slightly lower than the cases reported Friday, when 1,009 new infections were reported. However, the state health department said about 175 of the total cases reported Friday were the result of an influx of private lab results.
Despite the rise in daily infections, local authorities in suburban Philadelphia are reporting some of the lowest hospitalization rates since the onset of the pandemic. On Thursday, 31 residents were hospitalized for coronavirus in Bucks County. That's the lowest number of hospitalizations since March 31, when the number was 29.
