COVID-19 cases continue to fall in Philadelphia

COVID-19 cases are down in Philadelphia, and people want to know when the city will loosen restrictions like in New Jersey and Delaware.

The Philadelphia Health Department has indicated that masks will last indefinitely.

Below the height of the omicron variant in early January, health officials reported a positivity rate of 38 percent, which is about 2,600 new cases a day.

Currently, the city says they see fewer than 200 cases a day.

Despite the encouraging numbers, health officials are taking a slower approach to easing mandates.

We contacted the city’s health department, who referred us to the health commissioner briefing on Wednesdayand says they plan to take measurements that guide their decisions.
