COVID-19 Update

The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. Since yesterday, there has been one new confirmed case of COVID-19 and one more recovery, keeping the number of active cases in the county at 34. The number of deaths and the number of people hospitalized with the virus remain the same as yesterday.
As of 3 p.m. on June 11, 2020:
  • Columbia County has had 37 residents that have passed away from COVID-19.
  • Columbia County has received a total of 6,888 PCR [diagnostic] test results with 408 confirmed cases.
  • There are 34 active cases of COVID-19 in Columbia County.
  • 337 of the 408 cases have recovered from COVID-19
  • 11 of the positive cases are hospitalized, none of those hospitalized are in the ICU
  • We've received 1,897 antibody results, of which 157 were positive.
In his press briefing today, Governor Andrew Cuomo reported that New York has started reopening, but, unlike what is happening in other states, the number of new cases of the virus continues to go down.

That success is attributed to New Yorkers' behavior. 

Do your part. Wear a mask. Stay six feet away from others.
