The Pennsylvania Department of Health isn't providing identifying information on confirmed cases, except noting if the person is a child, due in part to the increasing volume of positive tests statewide.

However, some local organizations have reported cases, and those reports are listed here.

The number of reports may not match the number of cases because of the state's time frame — its midday counts show positive tests as of midnight — or because the state reports cases by the person's county of residence, even if possible exposures happened elsewhere.

Thursday, April 9, 2020: 35 new cases here, total 596; deaths rise to 33 per Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni.

Wednesday, April 8, 2020: 71 new cases here, total 561; deaths rise two to 16 per state Department of Health.

Tuesday, April 7, 2020: 82 new cases here, total 490; deaths rise three to 14 per state Department of Health.

Monday, April 6, 2020: 37 new cases here, total 408; state department of health's tally of deaths rises 3 to 11; county coroner said Sunday that the total was 13. The numbers may not match due to the state counting positive tests and deaths as of midnight or because the state reports cases by the person's county of residence, not death.

Sunday, April 5, 2020: 80 new cases here, total 371: 7 new deaths, total 13

Monday, March 23, 2020: No new cases here, total 5. [The department has generally said in the past that it attributes cases to the county where a person lives and such readjustments are due to receiving more information about a case.]
