The Onondaga County Health Department has received notification of a confirmed COVID-19 death, the third in Onondaga County. “Our deepest condolences to the family of this individual, as a community we must do everything it takes to prevent the spread of COVID-19” said Dr. Indu Gupta, Onondaga County Commissioner of Health. “This individual was a male, in their eighties and with significant underlying health conditions and was hospitalized.

Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
Dr. Gupta stated that “there are now cases in our community that are results of community spread. These cases are people who’ve received a positive diagnosis without having knowledge of a direct contact with an infected person or travel to an affected area. This should be cause for great concern and should emphasize the continued for strict social distancing and staying home when sick.” The public needs to step up and protect not just themselves, but others in our community who are most vulnerable to getting severely ill.
