According to the Delaware County COVID-19 map, Chester jumped from 201 cases on May 1 (0.57% of population) to 246 cases today, May 7 (0.73%). The number of deaths rose to 7.

We’ve slid ahead of Marple (232) and Nether Providence (195); soon to bypass Haverford Township (252); staring down Yeadon (270); and still way behind the county leader Upper Darby (747).

Stay Home. Stay Safe.
