Lancaster County has reported a total of 30,973 cases of COVID-19 and 232 deaths since the start of the pandemic.

The health department reported that 162,999 people have received at least one dose of a vaccine. 

Vaccination efforts have shifted from large-scale operations to targeted clinics, including clinics for high school students across the county last week.
