Why Can’t We Know Where?
There has been a lot of questions on Facebook and other avenues regarding the confirmation and location of positive cases in Tioga County. To protect privacy, the Task Force will not provide any specific information regarding positive COVID-19 cases in Tioga County.
In addition, the Task Force will only update the number of positive cases in Tioga County (or any county) after that information has been confirmed by the appropriate state department of health.
We understand that during these challenging times, everyone is looking for real-time and very specific information. The Task Force is committed to the accurate and timely reporting of information, but only after confirmation with the appropriate state agency. We are also very committed to respecting the privacy of all Tioga County residents and therefore will only be reporting on the number of cases in Tioga County and not the specific borough or township affected.
As the number of positive cases in Tioga County and the surrounding counties increase, we continue to encourage all residents to take this very seriously and observe the social distancing protocols and general guidance for Pennsylvanians to:
- stay home as much as possible
- shop once per week instead of daily
- refrain from non-essential travel
- do not host or attend gatherings of people
We understand as the number of positive cases increase, so will the apprehension of Tioga County residents. Pulling together as a community and following the advice of the Task Force, the PA Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention will ensure that we are and will remain well prepared win the war against the virus.
