County Executive Ryan McMahon tweeted that 22 of the 57 cases stem from at-home tests. Wednesday’s caseload is the lowest the county has seen since August 3, 2021. 45 residents are currently in the hospital with COVID and three of those patients are in the ICU, according to McMahon.  

“Amazing progress with 7-day average at 11 cases per 100k population,” McMahon tweeted

He also added that there were no new deaths to report. 

Meanwhile, Governor Kathy Hochul updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19 Wednesday.

“We must keep our guard up and utilize the tools we have at our disposal to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe and healthy,” Governor Hochul said. “Get vaccinated and boosted, get tested especially if you are experiencing symptoms, and stay home if you’re not feeling well. If you do test positive, talk to your doctor about available treatments.”

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:    

  • Cases Per 100k – 40.59

** Due to the test reporting policy change by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and several other factors, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data — not percent positivity.   

The Health Electronic Response Data System is a NYS DOH data source that collects confirmed daily death data as reported by hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities only.     

Important Note: Effective Monday, April 4, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is no longer requiring testing facilities that use COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to report negative results. As a result, New York State’s percent positive metric will be computed using only lab-reported PCR results. Positive antigen tests will still be reported to New York State and reporting of new daily cases and cases per 100k will continue to include both PCR and antigen tests. Due to this change and other factors, including changes in testing practices, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data — not percent positivity.   

  • Total deaths reported to and compiled by the CDC – 71,670

This daily COVID-19 provisional death certificate data reported by NYS DOH and NYC to the CDC includes those who died in any location, including hospitals, nursing homes, adult care facilities, at home, in hospice and other settings.
