Pennsylvania’s acting Secretary of Health Keara Klinepeter visited the State’s COVID-19 testing site in Centre County today.
The acting Secretary of Health says she was impressed by what she saw at the testing site which is currently held at the county refuse and recycling authority’s Interpretive Center.
As cases of the Omicron variant have continued to rise throughout the region over the last few weeks, covid testing has also seen a significant increase.
Testing is scheduled to remain at the county refuse and recycling authority’s interpretive center from 10-7 daily until at least January 29th.
“We have seen a slight decrease in the seven-day moving average, but it is too soon to tell if we’re truly at a peak. I think we are probably getting close to the peak if we’re not at it yet but I think there is still a lot of work to be done because there is a two week lag between case counts peaking and hospitalizations peaking, and then deaths peaking after that, and so even if we are at the peak by way of case counts, there’s still a lot of work to do.”
