In the weekly report, Burks had minus 138 cases in the week ending Thursday and the week ending February 11, with a positive rate of 7.6%, the lowest in almost three months.

Adjacent counties Lebanon and Scuccal have higher rates. The top 10 counties on that indicator are all more rural counties.
The densely populated Philadelphia and Delaware counties have been strangled in first and second place for several months, but are out of the top 25 in terms of cases per 100,000 meters.
In the neighboring Chester County, which has more than 100,000 residents than Burkes, the pandemic rate per 100,000 is less than 5,700 in the bottom 25 of the state. Prices for all counties adjacent to Chester are much higher.
