JAMESTOWN – No new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Chautauqua County on Tuesday, officials say thanks to in part by social distancing efforts.
Currently, there are 24 confirmed cases of the virus, with three cases active and 18 patients fully recovered. Three people have died from complications of the virus.
“The threat of this virus is still very severe for Chautauqua County,” said Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel. “It is necessary that Chautauqua County remain proactive and fully prepared to deal with its effects, and I ask all County citizens and visitors to venture out only for essential business. I also ask that we all “DO THE FIVE” to help stop the spread of the coronavirus: (1) HANDS – wash them often; (2) ELBOW – cough into it; (3) FACE – don’t touch it; (4) FEET – stay more than six feet apart; and (5) FEEL SICK? – stay home.”
As of 4:30 p.m. the Cattaraugus County online case tracker map lists a total of 26 confirmed cases, 21 of them active with five fully recovered.
