ONONDAGA COUNTY (WSYR-TV) — One week out of the Thanksgiving holiday and Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon believes we are feeling the effects of residents visiting with loved ones. 

McMahon announced Thursday that three residents passed away because of COVID-19. A man in his 50s and two women in their 70s and 80s; there was no word on whether or not any of them had underlying conditions. 

“We are seeing the impacts of Thanksgiving and will likely see a surge in cases over the next few days. It is critical we stay at home when sick and test, get vaccinated and your booster shot. Our actions today will have and impact 7-10 days from now. Lets nip this uptick.”

The encouragement to get vaccinated comes as 75% of those in the ICU in Onondaga County are unvaccinated, according to McMahon. 

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

“We are carefully monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and the emergence of the Omicron variant, which was detected in a visitor to New York City. Let me be clear: this is not cause for alarm,” Governor Hochul said. “I want all New Yorkers to know that their state government is prepared for this. Thanks to the life-saving tools at our disposal, like vaccines and boosters, we have the tools in our arsenal to fight this pandemic. I urge every New Yorker to take the necessary steps to keep themselves and their communities safe: get vaccinated, get boosted and wear a mask.”
