The Department of Public Health confirmed two additional fatalities in Philadelphia. This brings the number of residents who have succumbed to the virus in Philadelphia to 1,631. Of the 1,631 total deaths, 835 (51%) were long-term care facility residents.

The Department of Public Health noted continued progress in congregate settings, including nursing homes and the Department of Prisons. Current and cumulative totals of both symptomatic and asymptomatic positive cases in Philadelphia prisons are now posted on the testing and data page of the City’s COVID-19 website.

Trash and Recycling Pickup Delayed: Due to increased tonnage and severe weather, trash and recycling collections will be one day behind this week through Saturday, July 18. The Streets Department has been challenged with maintaining trash and recycling collections on a consistent schedule as it continues to see an increase in tonnage curbside. With more residents staying home during the pandemic, trash that is ordinarily generated and collected at businesses, restaurants, schools, and offices is now being collected at the curb by the Department. This, along with the torrential rains of last week has resulted in collection delays.
