Flu

Oneida County added one case of coronavirus Monday afternoon, bringing their total up to 38.

According to the office of County Executive Anthony Picente, there are now eight patients hospitalized with the disease, with two of those victims receiving treatment outside the county.

Since testing began, Oneida County has recorded 290 negative results out of 568 total tested. 278 people remain under mandatory quarantine, while another 234 have been placed under pre-cautionary quarantine.

In addition, 442 have been discharged from both mandatory and pre-cautionary quarantine since testing began.

Lewis County remained at two cases as of the latest updates Monday from public health. Their first two cases were recorded over the weekend - two elderly people who both attended a social event within 14 days of symptom onset, according to Public Health Director Ashley Waite.

Both victims remain in negative pressure isolation rooms at Lewis County General Hospital, meaning the air is continuously filtered out and prevented from spreading throughout the rest of the building.

Jefferson County now has a dozen confirmed cases, while St. Lawrence County has recently bloomed a cluster of cases involving students at SUNY Potsdam.

As of the latest numbers Monday afternoon, New York is leading the nation with 66,500 COVID-19 cases.
