(WSYR-TV) — Onondaga County released its three-day COVID numbers Monday with 226 people testing positive. 

County Executive Ryan McMahon tweeted that 75 of the positive results stemmed from at-home tests. 49 residents are in Onondaga County hospitals with COVID-19 and four of those patients are in the Intensive Care Unit, according to McMahon. 

He also noted that one man in his 70s passed away over the weekend, but there was no word on if he had any preexisting conditions. 

NewsChannel 9 spoke with Dr. Stephen Thomas again but this time he tells his personal story of having COVID-19. You can watch the interview in the video player below:

Meanwhile, the state numbers continue to slow as well. Hospitalization numbers are the lowest for the state since May 12.

“While numbers are heading in the right direction, we must remain vigilant against this virus and continue boosting our preparedness for any potential surges later this year,” Governor Hochul said. “I encourage all New Yorkers to make use of the tools we have available to us to keep each other safe and healthy. Be sure to keep up to date with vaccinations and booster doses in order to protect yourself and those around you from serious illness and hospitalization. Test often, especially if you are experiencing symptoms, and talk to your doctor about available treatments if you test positive.”

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:    

  • Cases Per 100k – 20.11

** 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.
