WARREN COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Warren County Public Health confirmed nine new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, as well as seven recoveries.

As of Tuesday, the county was monitoring 94 active coronavirus cases.

One resident was hospitalized as of Tuesday, considered moderately ill. One other patient is also considered moderately ill, but is not in the hospital.

In a post on their website, the district said that the positive case was connected to Queensbury High School, and was in the building as recently as March 1. Those who were in close contact with the individual are being contacted as contact tracing proceeds.

On the vaccine front, Warren County is expecting a shipment of 1,170 doses later this week or early next week, all intended for those ages 65 and older. The county continues to work with individual medical providers on getting doses to the right people, including those with comorbidities.

The county also announced this week a new waiting list system for those ages 65 and up looking to get vaccinated. Within the first day, over 600 people signed up.
