The Cattaraugus County Health Department confirmed two additional cases of the coronavirus Sunday, bringing the county’s total to 129, according to a press release issued by the department.
The 128th case is a woman who lives in the southeast quadrant of the county. The woman reported no significant travel history and denies having any contact with a known COVID-19 positive individual. The woman was tested for COVID-19 on Saturday as part of a pre-op exam for an upcoming surgical procedure. Her positive test result came back Sunday.
The 129th confirmed case is a male who lives in the southwest quadrant of the county. The man recently arrived in the area from California, one of the states on New York’s restricted travel list. The man was admitted to a hospital after developing a fever, cough and vomiting. The man was tested for COVID-19 on Sunday and revived his positive test result soon after.
The department has begun thorough contact tracing on the individuals.
There are 14 active COVID-19 cases in the county; 111 individuals have recovered; four have died.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo issued an executive order on June 24 that requires individuals traveling to New York from states with high COVID-19 rates to quarantine for 14 days. The quarantine applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
