Onondaga County Sees Slight Uptick In COVID Cases

Syracuse, N.Y. - Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon offering a briefing today says that the county has seen a slight uptick in cases recently.

He said the positivity rate is up to 1.2%, there are 582 active cases and there are 100 new cases. He said 34 people are in the hospital with 4 in ICU. Sadly a 54-year-old man died over the weekend.

McMahon said they expect to see an increase in positive cases over the next 7-10 days due to Spring Break and Easter holiday.

He urged those coming back from Spring Break to get tested, especially if they haven't been vaccinated yet.

He also said the county will provide 1,500 doses of vaccine to Syracuse University for a clinic to be held on campus this week and they are talking to SUNY ESF, Onondaga Community College, and Le Moyne College about how the county can help them get their students vaccinated.
