County health officials warn that infections are trending upward, approaching 10% positivity rate

County Facebook page will resume public comments

COVID cases are continuing to trend upward with 520 new COVID cases reported since last Monday’s update. Sadly, another resident has passed. In line with NYSDOH, we are asking hospitals to let us know if COVID positive patients are admitted due to COVID or with COVID. Some patients are admitted for COVID reasons or because of COVID complications (due to COVID), while others may be admitted for non-COVID reasons, but have tested positive for COVID (with COVID).

You can see this added element on the hospitalized line of the graphic.

We would like to reopen commenting by the public so that people can interact again. We will give this a trial period. If there are a lot of comments spreading misinformation, using inappropriate or aggressive langue, or verbally attacking others, we will have to disable comments again. Please be kind, courteous, and caring towards each other. Let this be a forum for legitimate discussions and questions.
