A woman vacationing in Indiana and a man who visited Ohio are the 108th and 109th confirmed COVID-19 cases.
The Cattaraugus County Health Department announced both cases Monday night.
The woman was tested for COVID-19 in Indiana on June 28, and her test results came back positive on July 2, according to a press release from the department. She is a direct contact of a known positive COVID-19 person but is asymptomatic. She lives in the northwest quadrant of the county and is still vacationing in Indiana, according to the press release.
The man who tested positive lives in the southeast quadrant of the county. After returning from Ohio, he developed a fever, a sore throat and fatigue. He was tested for COVID-19 on July 7 and the results came back positive on Monday.
The health department has begun thorough contact tracing investigations for individuals that each resident has been in contact with and for places each has visited.
The two new cases bring the department's active positive COVID-19 caseload to nine. Ninety-six county residents have recovered from COVID-19, and 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. At the time the positive tests were confirmed, neither Indiana nor Ohio was among the 19 states on the NYS quarantine list. Ohio was added Wednesday.
