The first patient from Wayne County who tested positive for the coronavirus is now on the mend.
HONESDALE, Pa. — Scott Walck of Lake Ariel found himself to be a statistic in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic in Pennsylvania. He was the first positive case in Wayne County and originally spent nine days being treated for COVID-19 at Wayne Memorial Hospital.
