The Bucks County Department of Health reported 31 additional COVID-19 cases today as the county joined 10 others in moving to the yellow phase of Gov. Tom Wolf’s reopening plan.

The new numbers once again were slightly inflated by five delayed transfer cases reported from Philadelphia that occurred so long ago that they no longer are infections.

Of the other 26 infections, 10 were spread from household contacts, six from work contacts, four from pure community spread, two from healthcare settings and one from out-of-state exposure. Three are residents of long-term care facilities.

Two deaths also were reported: a 63-year-old woman and an 80-year-old man, both with underlying health conditions. A total of 471 Bucks County residents who tested positive for COVID-19 have died.

Ninety-five Bucks coronavirus patients remain hospitalized, 17 of them in critical condition and on ventilators. Of 4,939 residents who have tested positive during the pandemic, 1,904 are confirmed to have recovered.

Statistics, charts and other coronavirus-related information can be found on the county’s data portal: https://covid19-bucksgis.hub.arcgis.com.  An interactive Bucks County map showing numbers of active infections by municipality can be found here.
