1,115 COVID-19 cases as More are Tested, Opening Car Dealerships?: Onondaga County Executive Daily Briefing 5-5-20

The county has quickly moved to assure those in senior living facilities and nursing homes that testing is available which generated more tests and as we’ve been warned – more cases. On a positive note our hospitalizations are trending downward. According to County Executive J. Ryan McMahon ,“We have seen what this virus is doing to our community, to our vulnerable. We have lost more neighbors; we have had three neighbors leave us over the last 24 hours they were all males. One, Caucasian in his 90’s, African-American in his 80’s and another in his 60’s. We’ve lost 40 people to COVID-19 29 Caucasian, 7 African Americans and 4 of another race, 22 female and 18 males”

The county executive took time to extend his condolences and asks the community to think about, not only those lost to the pandemic, but those who can’t properly grieve, mourn and heal the way they would normally do. As he continues the numbers are updated, “Our hospitalizations are down to 47 today, 10% of our active cases, so we have 47 individuals in the hospital.  We have people who are 13 critical, 3% of our active cases. Out of those in the hospital; 24 Caucasian, 12 African American, 7 of another race and 4 individuals that declined to share race information.”

There was also some movement towards re-opening Car Dealerships as McMahon continues, “We have to find balance, with our economic interests and our public health. We’ll continue to find that balance but part of that is moving forward loosening up regulations that makes sense. Auto sales is our number one driver of sales tax for Onondaga county, the region and New York state.”

The briefing included several locations that had employees test positive to the COVID-19 virus.
