HARRISBURG (KDKA) — The Pennsylvania Department of Health is reporting 580 new Coronavirus cases and 45 additional deaths.
This brings the statewide total to 1,203,443 cases and 27,259 total COVID-19 related deaths since the pandemic began.
There are 989 people across the state in the hospital with COVID-19, and 248 patients are in ICUs.
The state says 10,619,481 total vaccine doses have been administered and 4,722,449 people are fully vaccinated. So far, 54.4% of Pennsylvanians age 18 and older are fully vaccinated, and 58.5% of Pennsylvania’s entire population has received a first dose.
Pennsylvania is adopting the CDC’s newly relaxed mask-wearing guidelines, meaning fully vaccinated people don’t have to wear masks in most places.
The Department of Health says the mask mandate will be lifted on June 28, or even sooner if 70% of adults are fully vaccinated before then.
