Nine new COVID-19 cases, mostly associated with long-term care. We now can confirm 3 additional deaths from Elm Manor over the weekend. The number of recoveries has also increased today. (Updated 5/26/2020)

May 23, 2020 

A little good news today! We are starting to see more recoveries. Recoveries should increase throughout the week. Tomorrow (5/24/2020), is 10 days after Ontario County had a large case spike (22 cases on 5/24/2020). Per the NYSDOH protocol, to be released from isolation a resident must have these three elements; a time period of 10 days after testing positive, no fever for 3 days (no fever reducers) and improving symptoms. In some COVID-10 positive patients this can take a very long time depending on how sick they were.

We are now using NYSDOH’s negative test numbers. They do not send the number of negatives to Local Health Departments on the weekend. You may see a spike in negative test results on Tuesday.

The GIS map is updated on Monday-Friday and it will be updated on Tuesday because of the Memorial Day holiday. (Updated 5/23/2020)

May 22, 2020 

Please note that we had three new cases today. Of the three new cases we are working with our nurses to isolate a physical address in Ontario County as indicated in the GIS map. We are also actively investigating any long term care affiliations with two of the cases as indicated by the green bar on the graph. Unfortunately, an Elm Manor resident that had tested positive for COVID-19 has passed. We extend our condolences to the resident’s family and the Elm Manor employees.

Please remember that due to the holiday weekend the graph and map will be updated on 5/25/2020. The updated data will continue to be available every afternoon. (Updated 5/22/2020)

May 20, 2020 

Please note that today we had 1 positive COVID-19 case that we transferred to another county Health Department. (Decreasing our total to 162 at the beginning of the day. Plus, the 10 new ones today =172.) Unfortunately, we also had one death associated with Elm Manor to report.
