Berks County Commissioners Warned Of Increase In COVID-19 Positivity Tests


The director of the Berks County Department of Emergency Services says Berks County has close to five-percent positivity rate on all testing that gets done. He adds that number is skewed due to testing at nursing homes. When looking at first-time testing being done on people not feeling well, or those exposed to someone with COVID-19, Gottschall said the positivity rate is closer to ten percent. Commissioner Christian Leinbach says the data from contact tracing reveals that the trend for positive cases tends to be among high school and college students.
