Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon’s Daily COVID-19 Briefing – April 22, 2020 ‘Time and our health are the two greatest things that we all have’


The good news is we no longer are being asked to voluntarily shelter-in-place. We are reminded that we should still curtail travel.

Test, trace and isolate; appears to be the next step, in our community-wide effort to control the spread of COVID-19. According to Onondaga County Executive J. Ryan McMahon, community spread of the disease/COVID-19 is down, the fight is being taken to where there are possible hot spots.

There may be pockets of coronavirus in senior living facilities, apartment buildings, basically where people are densely populated.  Nursing home employees have been utilizing the new testing facility at Walmart East Syracuse. As more aggressive, broader testing is conducted the numbers are expected to rise. Previously, a person had to show symptoms in order to receive a COVID-19 test.

Both Onondaga County Executive J. Ryan McMahon and Gov. Andrew Cuomo have approved of the test, trace and isolate model. That means testing larger numbers of people to find positive cases. The Health Department will trace their contacts and isolate those people in an effort to stop the spread of the virus.
