ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Albany County Executive Dan McCoy said Wednesday morning that there are 142 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the county. There are 557 people on mandatory quarantine. He also said the number of precautionary quarantines should drop Thursday as 400 students from Farnsworth Elementary come off quarantine. He said none of the students have tested positive.
McCoy said that there are 10 people in the hospital and two people in the ICU.
He went on to say that the number of positive cases reported will go down but that is because of a lack of test kits not because fewer people are getting it. He continues to urge people to practice social distancing and limit travel.
