920 total cases as Senior Facilities are added: County Executive Ryan McMahon’s COVID-19 Daily Briefing 4-30-20

Due to increased efforts to proactive testing by Onondaga County, going into senior living centers has caused an expected increase in our COVID-19 positive numbers. 44 new infections were discovered in recent testing.  According to Onondaga County Executive J. Ryan McMahon, “With all these actions, we will have more cases” emphasizing that the infections in senior centers did not represent as large a risk if this had been community spread. 70 percent of those with active cases are from senior living centers “These are situations that are already contained and quarantined,” McMahon said.

“It’s sobering, when you see how many people have it, whether they’re asymptomatic or not,” McMahon said, noting that the majority are now in small pockets of the community — among the most vulnerable populations.

There have been close to 900 tests at the Walmart testing site, with infection rates lower than the other testing facilities. Overall, Onondaga County has tested more than 3 percent of its residents.

Good news is we met the criteria for hospitals to resume elective surgeries. It was also noted that there are some individuals that can’t wear masks due to underlying health issues. Extending Child Care program through May 31st.  Free slots for essential employees.
