“On our call with local hospital systems this morning, it was shared that bed capacity is running low due to COVID-19 admissions in the area,” said Darlene Smith, Steuben County Public Health Director. “We currently have Steuben positives in their 30s to their 90s who are hospitalized. It is so important to limit social gatherings at this time, because these events lend to spread more readily. You could be lucky and not feel too ill with COVID-19, or you could end up in the hospital at any age – none of us know which way COVID could impact you specifically. Utilize all prevention strategies so that our hospitals are available for those who need care, COVID-related or otherwise.”

Wayne County

697 positive cases have been confirmed as of Friday. 106 cases are active, and 13 are in the hospital.

As of Thursday, 85 of the cases are in skilled nursing or adult care facilities. The DeMay Living Center in Newark has reported dozens of cases in residents and staff members recently.

12 people have died after testing positive for COVID-19. The county did not offer a location or gender for the patients who died.

579 of the cases have resolved.

As of Friday, 27,721 tests have been conducted; 27,024 have come back negative.

Wayne County Public Health officials say a number of cases have been traced to people not wearing masks or who have taken part in large, non-distanced gatherings. They are strongly recommending social distancing in public by remaining six feet or more apart, wearing a mask in public places, washing hands and using hand sanitizer frequently, and avoiding going to large gathering.

Wyoming County

327 people have tested positive for coronavirus as of Friday afternoon.

Of those 327 patients, 83 are from the county’s northwest quadrant (Attica, Bennington, Orangeville and Sheldon), 56 are from the southwest quadrant (Arcade, Eagle, Java, Wethersfield), 41 are from the southeast quadrant (Castile, Gainesville, Genesee Falls and Pike), and 105 are from the northeast quadrant (Covington, Middlebury, Perry and Warsaw).

42 of the patients are at New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision facilities.

Five people died of the virus – all of whom lived in the northeast quadrant.

233 of the 327 patients in the county have recovered.

213 are in mandatory quarantine, and 47 are in mandatory isolation. Of tests conducted in the county, 27,546 have come back negative.

Yates County

294 cases have been confirmed as of Friday afternoon. Two patients are currently hospitalized. 182 people are under quarantine.

Seven people have died.

253 people have recovered.

Deborah Minor, Yates County Public Health Director, is urging people to use cloth face coverings when they are going out in public, but reminds people that it is not a substitute for social distancing.

“These coverings help to slow the spread, primarily by reducing the risk of someone giving the virus to others – especially when that someone may have the virus but does not know it,” Minor said.
