Westmoreland County saw 14 new cases of covid-19 as of Sunday, but no new deaths related to the virus, data provided by state and local officials show.
The county’s total number of covid-19 cases reached 374 on Sunday, up from the 360 cases reported on Saturday.

According to state numbers, roughly 41% of Westmoreland’s covid-19 cases, as well as all deaths reported by the state, can be attributed to nursing and personal care homes.
As of Sunday, 19 nursing home deaths had been reported, and 125 residents and 28 employees across six different facilities had tested positive for the virus in the county, state data show.
