CENTRAL NEW YORK (WSYR-TV) — With some states setting new records for coronavirus cases and congress back to working on ways to help those financially impacted by the pandemic, we’re checking What’s Going Around in Central New York and COVID-19 is not on the list.
At Pediatric Associates in Camillus, there is a fever going around, but it doesn’t have any other symptoms. It is probably caused by a virus.
