Warren County

Warren County, along with others across the Capital Region, are exploring a regional approach to addressing medical examiner concerns, as uncertainty continues over where the county’s forensic autopsies will take place.

WARREN COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Warren County has reported 31 new COVID-19 cases and 16 recoveries since Tuesday. There are currently 263 active cases in the county.

Of the new cases, five had been on Warren County public school campuses. More information on the school cases can be found on New York State’s School COVID-19 Report Card website.

The county said the surge in COVID cases in recent weeks appears to stem from workplace contacts, household contacts, youth sports and indoor events. Warren County Health Services asks that event organizers incorporate COVID-related precautions into their plans.

Fourteen of Wednesday’s cases involved individuals who had been fully vaccinated. As of Wednesday, 588 of 43,810 fully vaccinated Warren County residents have tested positive for COVID.

Warren County recommends residents:

  • Get a COVID-19 vaccination
  • Do not go to work or school if feeling any symptoms of illness, and self-quarantine until getting a COVID test
  • Wear a mask and face covering in public indoor places
  • Those who are not vaccinated, including children under the age of 12, should wear masks in all public indoor settings
  • Wash hands frequently and maintain social distance
  • If diagnosed with COVID-19, please consult a physician or urgent care center to discuss treatment
