WARREN COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Warren County Health Services regrets to report an additional COVID-19 death involving a Warren County resident. This individual was in their 40s, lived at home, and did not have a history of significant health issues before contracting COVID-19.

“Our thoughts and prayers to those who have lost loved ones during this pandemic,” said Rachel Seeber, Chairwoman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors. “Sadly we have seen in recent months that COVID-19 does not just affect older people.”

Warren County Health Services reported 31 additional COVID-19 cases on Sunday, along with 41 recoveries. Health Services is monitoring 296 active COVID cases as of Sunday, 284 of them involving mild illness.

Health Services reports ten are hospitalized, unchanged from Saturday. Two are in critical condition and eight others have a moderate illness. Two are moderately ill outside of the hospital. Twenty of Sunday’s new cases involved the community spread of COVID-19 and eleven involved residents of a nursing home.

Health Services reports the surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks continues to stem from Delta variant exposures in workplaces, households, youth sports, and indoor events. 23 of Sunday’s cases involved individuals who had been fully vaccinated. Cumulatively as of Sunday, 735 of 44,110 fully vaccinated Warren County residents have tested positive for COVID-19.

To date, 690 of 735 had a mild illness, while 30 became moderately ill, two seriously ill, and two critically ill. Eleven passed away, all of them elderly with extensive health issues, five (5) of them at one nursing home.
