COVID-19 Update

The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. Since yesterday, there have been ten new cases of COVID-19. The number of active cases being reported today is nine fewer than yesterday, from which it can be inferred that nineteen more county residents are now considered to be recovering from the virus. The number of county residents in mandatory quarantine is four fewer today than yesterday, but the number hospitalized and in the ICU remains the same. There has not been a death from COVID-19 in Columbia County since yesterday.  

The New York Forward dashboard is reporting a positivity rate for Columbia County yesterday of 3.8 percent and a seven-day average of 2.4 percent. By comparison, the daily positivity rate for the Capital Region is 3.0 percent and the seven-day average is 2.4 percent.

  1. Carole, given the huge number of "visitors" (an assumption based only on personal observation) in Hudson, one would assume that the Health Department is tracking covid cases of non-residents. It would seem a worthy question to our local Health Department.
