COVID-19 update: Orleans County’s seven-day moving average among state’s highest | Public service news

ALBION — As New York’s COVID-19 numbers rise, Orleans County has reported the highest seven-day moving average in the state.

The seven-day moving average of positive results in Orleans County was 11.9 percent from Sunday, according to the state’s COVID-19 dashboard. It also reported a seven-day average of 92.2 cases per 100,000 people ranked second statewide behind Washington County.

By comparison, the statewide seven-day moving average was 3.3 percent on Sunday, with a seven-day average of 27.8 cases per 100,000 people.

The rest of the GLOW region also remained relatively high, including:

N Genesee County’s seven-day moving average was 9 percent Sunday, with a seven-day average of 69.1 cases per 100,000 people.

N Wyoming County’s seven-day moving average was 9.2 percent Sunday, with a seven-day average of 59.5 cases per 100,000 people.

N Livingston County’s seven-day moving average was 8.6 percent on Sunday, with a seven-day average of 68.9 cases per 100,000 people.

Those numbers relate to area health officials.

“As the colder weather and winter holidays are bringing more people indoors, now is a great time to get your COVID-19 vaccination — including pediatric vaccines and booster doses for those who qualify,” said Jennifer Rodriguez, public health director of Livingston County.

Rodriguez reminds residents that the pandemic is not over yet.

“The health and safety of our community is paramount and we need to remain vigilant more than ever,” she said. “If you qualify, you’ll get a booster because the vaccine’s efficacy declines after six months.”

Livingston County is hosting its first COVID-19 vaccination clinics for children ages 5 to 11 this week.

The clinics come when the county sees the number of active cases surpassing 200. The 204 active cases as of Monday is three times the number of cases in Livingston County compared to the same time last year, according to the provincial health ministry.

The increase is the result of “more things open to full capacity, increased testing efforts for oversight of schools and unvaccinated staff,” Rodriguez said.

Two first-dose Pfizer vaccine clinics for children ages 5 to 11 are scheduled for this week. The first is scheduled to take place from 3-5pm on November 18 at the county’s Murray Hill Campus at 2 Murray Hill Drive, Mount Morris. The second clinic is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon on Nov. 20 at Dansville High School, 282 Main St., Dansville.

The clinics are by appointment only. Go to https://tinyurl.com/ydtyjenn to register.
