Today, August 6, we are caring for 11 COVID positive inpatients at Mount Nittany Medical Center, ranging in age from 42 to 88. In July, we had 37 COVID positive admissions at the Medical Center with an average daily census of 6. Since July 23, our average daily census has steadily increased to 10. 

By comparison, in June, 40 COVID positive patients were admitted with an average daily census of 7. 

"We are concerned that we continue to see a steady increase in the number of people hospitalized for COVID,  up to a daily average of 10 COVID positive inpatients over the last two weeks. The vast majority of people who have been hospitalized at the Medical Center for COVID are not fully vaccinated. The COVID vaccine is highly effective and our best defense to return to normal activities. In addition, we strongly encourage everyone to exercise behaviors to stay safe, including masking, physical distancing, and cleaning your hands often," said Dr. Tiffany Cabibbo, Chief Nursing Officer and Executive Vice President, Patient Care Services, Mount Nittany Health.

You do not need to be a Mount Nittany Health patient to request a vaccine, and there is no out-of-pocket cost for the vaccine. We will contact you with your appointment date and time.

Since December, Mount Nittany Health has vaccinated more than 45,000 people against COVID.
