11 New PA Coronavirus Cases Traced To Jersey Shore Gatherings

Nearly a dozen new coronavirus cases in Pennsylvania have been traced to the Jersey Shore, according to state health officials.

Of the 33 new COVID-19 cases, 11 of them traced to a person who spread the virus at recent beach house gatherings at the Jersey Shore over the past two weeks, the Bucks County Department of Health said in a news release Saturday.

Additional cases tied to the family member are expected, said Dr. David Damsker, director of the Bucks County Health Department.

"This is exactly why we can’t let our guard down now, even if it feels 'safe' to be at the beach," Damsker said.

"One unlucky exposure can lead to a large cascade of cases down the line. We want everyone to enjoy the warmer weather and have fun, but let’s keep in mind that COVID is still circulating in the community at baseline levels."

Health officials did not say where at the Jersey Shore the gatherings occurred, noting only that department relies on voluntary reporting.
