HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania health officials are taking a deep dive into areas where COVID-19 cases are ticking up and threatening to undo months of progress against the disease.

The state's health secretary, Dr. Rachel Levine, said Friday the increases may be due to reopening that's been occurring as well as increased testing.

Levine also says the state will be allowing Lebanon County, the 67th and final county, to move from the yellow phase to the less restrictive green phase on July 3.

The Health Department said Friday there are 600 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the state, the highest total since June 13, pushing the overall total to 84,370.

There were 22 more deaths reported to make 6,579 total.
