The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now consider Allegheny County to be in the “low” level of community COVID-19 activity. The CDC bases that characterization on a review of new hospital admissions and inpatient beds occupied due to COVID-19, and new cases over seven days.

For the week of March 1 through 7, the county Health Department reported 698 new COVID-19 infections, 89 hospitalizations and 8 deaths.
