The number of new COVID-19 cases seems to be on a downward trajectory in Pennsylvania, particularly in Chester County, where some ZIP Codes did not record a single new case in the last seven days, write Sean Adams and Megan Lavey-Heaton for the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
The latest numbers from the Pennsylvania Department of Health highlight the rates of COVID-19 infection for each ZIP Code for the seven days ending Jan. 20, compared to the seven days prior.
The highest percentage increase in Chester County during this period was in ZIP Code 19362 (Nottingham) and ZIP Code 19465 (Saint Peters/South Pottstown). In both places, cases increased by eight percent to reach 287 and 686, respectively.
