That includes 3,031 individuals now hospitalized with COVID-19, including 678 patients in intensive care units. Meanwhile, the department of health confirmed as of early Wednesday, there were 5,012 additional positive cases of COVID-19 across the state, bringing the Pennsylvania total to 1,491,146. On Sept. 22, Stutzman said he and Indiana Regional Medical Center were requesting the deployment of Pennsylvania National Guard units at IRMC’s emergency rooms in White Township and its IRMC at Chestnut Ridge center in Burrell Township to bolster the hospital’s ability to do COVID testing.

However, Stutzman went on, “the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is reporting that Indiana County has seen a 10.71 percent increase in (intensive care unit) admissions (and in the past week) a 120 percent in the number of COVID-related deaths in Indiana County.” The ICEMA director said state figures show an 11.3 percent decrease in positive case rates and 4.35 percent decrease in hospital admissions within Indiana County.

Across the commonwealth, Gov. Tom Wolf said Wednesday 70 percent of Pennsylvanians aged 18 and older are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. While Indiana County and the rest of the commonwealth remain at a high level of community transmission of COVID-19, the number of tests per day seems to have slipped, from about 120 tests a day to 96 as of Wednesday.

In other COVID-19-related developments Wednesday, at the request of the Indiana County Office of Planning and Development, the commissioners approved: • A proclamation designating October as National Community Planning Month. County Deputy Planning Director Josh Krug said this year’s theme of “Planning is Essential to Recovery” highlights how planning and planners can lead communities to equitable, resilient and long-lasting recovery from the effects of the pandemic. Upcoming clinics are slated on Tuesday and Oct. 26, each from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the KCAC, while IRMC again will set up shop for a 5 to 7 p.m. clinic Oct. 21 at the next Downtown Indiana Third Thursday event at IRMC Park along North Seventh Street in Indiana.

Also, Stutzman said, IRMC has resumed its weekly COVID-19 vaccination clinics, moved from the hospital grounds to the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex a few blocks away on the Indiana University of Pennsylvania campus. They’re still seeking the help but it’s no longer in the form of military reservists. Stutzman said the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and DOH immediately provided other options to IRMC to address the certification levels of the personnel the hospital was seeking.
