COVID-19 Update

The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. Since yesterday, there has been another death from COVID-19. There have also been 48 new cases, increasing the number of active cases now being reported by 28 to 423. (From this, we can surmise that nineteen more people are now considered to be recovering.) There are three fewer county residents in mandatory quarantine today than yesterday. Nine more county residents are hospitalized with the virus today than yesterday, and one more is in the ICU. 

The New York Forward dashboard is reporting a positivity rate for Columbia County yesterday of 5.6 percent and a seven-day average of 7.7 percent. By comparison, the daily positivity rate for the Capital Region is 7.9 percent and the seven-day average is 7.5 percent.
