HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP)-- Pennsylvania is reporting its highest number of confirmed coronavirus infections in more than five months.

The Department of Health said Thursday that another 1,376 people tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. It was the second consecutive day that new infections rose above 1,300. Thursday’s statewide case count was the highest since April 30, when Pennsylvania recorded 1,397 new infections.

Health officials cite increased spread among college and university students. The governor is expressing concern but says the state is in a much better position now to handle the influx than it was at the beginning of the pandemic.
