COVID-19 Update

It's almost 6:30 p.m., and the Columbia County Department of Health has not released any numbers for today. At this point, it's not likely they will. So today, Gossips publishes instead this excerpt from Governor Andrew Cuomo's NYS Coronavirus Update:
As of 11 a.m. this morning, 69.2 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose, per the CDC. Once we reach 70 percent, and we are close, most remaining COVID restrictions will be lifted. Over the past 24 hours, 104,488 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 19,820,785 total doses with 60.3 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker
If you click on the link to the Vaccine Tracker, you will find this information about Columbia County.

These numbers put us about two percentage points behind the rest of the state in the race to achieve herd immunity.
