There are 36 new cases to report since our update Friday morning: 24 on Friday, 6 on Saturday, and 6 on Sunday. Twenty-four of the cases had known contact with someone who tested positive. We are seeing a lot of cases linked to gatherings of family and friends. Additionally, there are 30 recoveries to report. The dashboard can be found at https://arcg.is/1r1SzS. As an update on COVID-19 vaccine availability, New York State announced individuals in Phase 1B can begin being scheduled for vaccination starting today. However, we are waiting on confirmation from NYS regarding how many doses of vaccine they will be sending to our County this week. We will post clinic dates and times and information on how to register once we know how many doses we will be receiving. Thank you for your patience.
Active deemed positive
Our updates only include individuals who have been tested for COVID-19. There are almost certainly other people with COVID-19 in the community who haven’t been tested and have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. That’s why it is important we all continue to wear masks, social distance, wash our hands often, and monitor ourselves for any symptoms of COVID-19.
The State’s data includes all positive results that are initially sent to us at Schuyler County Public Health. Sometimes, test results are sent to us and we end up finding out the person does not reside in Schuyler County, so we transfer them to the appropriate county or state. This can also happen the other way with our residents results going to a different county and that county’s health department having to forward them to us. The State’s numbers do not get adjusted for these transfers – they just report the total number of positive results sent to each county each day.
