Supervisor’s Message – January Town Board Meeting

As the daily report shows, while the number of hospitalizations are at the same levels as last year and deaths are less frequent, the infection level is 3 times higher. Test positivity hit 20% this week and that is way underreported as most testing is now done with home kits and not reported.

 As such,  we will go remote for our January Board Meeting, Tuesday night Janaury 18th at 6:30.  We are pushing presentations and plans as much as possible to later meetings in February and March so folks can attend in person, we hope.  At the Jaunary Meeting, we wil go through our annual reorganization and appointments. Zoom details can be had by emailing [email protected]

From “Gossips of Rivertown
The Columbia County Department of Health released its numbers at 4:00 p.m. today, and they are stunning. Since yesterday, there have been 212 new cases of COVID-19. The number of active cases being reported today is just 33 more than yesterday, from which it can be inferred that, since yesterday, 179 county residents have recovered from the virus. There are 2 more county residents hospitalized today than yesterday, 1 of whom is in the ICU. There has not been a death from COVID-19 in Columbia County since Thursday.

The New York Forward dashboard is reporting a positivity rate for Columbia County today of 14.9 percent and a seven-day average of 21.0 percent. By comparison, the daily positivity rate for the Capital Region is 17.0 percent and the seven-day average is 18.2 percent.

A year ago today, the CCDOH reported 65 new cases of COVID-19. The total number of cases was 2,414, and the number of active cases was 387. There were 660 county residents in mandatory quarantine, 26 were hospitalized, and 3 were in the ICU. The total number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 at this time last year was 54.
