WARREN COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Warren County Health Services reported three new Warren County resident COVID-19 cases as of Sunday morning, with one additional recovery.
Warren County Administrator Ryan Moore pointed out that Warren County has seen an increase in cases where the source of the infection has been impossible to trace.
“The increase of cases like these is troubling and coincides with schools reopening for classroom learning,” Moore said. “School officials are doing the best they can and they’re working very hard at it, but schools present difficult challenges because kids are often asymptomatic. They, their parents and their teachers often have no way of knowing they are carrying the virus until they infect somebody else who is more vulnerable to the virus.”
