Bucks County health officials confirmed 82 new positives of coronavirus Monday, bringing the total to 4,003. 52 of those new cases are attributed to long term care facilities.
Additionally, 20 patients who died of Covid were reported Monday. 17 of them were residents at these facilities. Of the 332 total deaths in Bucks, only 58 have been people outside of long term care facilities.
Neshaminy Manor, the county-run Nursing home, has reported 35 residents have died since the beginning of the outbreak. After mass testing at Neshaminy Manor, 82 residents tested positive and 141 tested negative. Only eight of those who tested positive have made full recoveries.
Among the wider community, 1,071 people have made full recoveries so far.
The number of cases attributed to community spread remains low as well with less than eight Monday.
Bucks is currently waiting on an answer from the Wolf Administration on whether the county will be allowed the reopen earlier than June 4. Their bid hinges on Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine accepting the argument to consider cases at long term care facilities separately from the rest of the general public.
