OSWEGO COUNTY – According to the Oswego County Health Department, there have been a total of 744 additional cases of COVID-19 (data from April 11 to April 17), and two more COVID-19 related deaths have been reported.

“Every death is an unfortunate development in our ongoing efforts to fight this virus,” said Oswego County Public Health Director Jiancheng Huang. “I would like to express our sincere condolences to the families and friends of these individuals.”

Huang said that although the seven-day accumulated positive case count is lower this week, compared to last week, new case counts still remain high. 

“In addition, hospitalization data shows that most of the new hospitalizations are people aged 65 and above,” he added. “We need to continue to promote vaccinations to protect our most vulnerable populations. Last week, 312 residents received their vaccination, up from 228 the week before. This is a step in the right direction.”

The following report reflects data collected from Monday, April 11 through Sunday, April 17: 

  • Number of lab/provider tests: 3,425
  • Number of lab/provider positive cases: 577
  • Percentage of lab/provider positive cases: 16.85%
  • Number of at-home positive test results: 167

An additional 18 Oswego County residents were hospitalized due to COVID-19 between Sunday, April 3 and Saturday, April 9, according to the hospitalization report received by the Oswego County Health Department. New hospitalization numbers are not part of a running total of hospitalizations. For hospitalization details such as age groups and vaccination status, go to the Oswego County COVID-19 Dashboard at https://oswegogis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/dashboards/3fd162cd12264b418dc03bdebd7f5300.

Oswego County’s COVID-19 community level remains ‘high,’ according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At this level, the CDC and NYSDOH recommend that people wear a mask indoors in public spaces and keep their COVID-19 vaccines up to date. They should also get tested if they experience symptoms and, if they are at a high risk for severe illness, should take additional precautions, such as avoiding poorly ventilated or crowded spaces.

The Oswego County Health Department holds COVID-19 vaccination clinics every Tuesday and Wednesday. Vaccines are also available at local pharmacies and health care provider offices. Face masks are required at all clinics and at-home COVID-19 test kits will be distributed to those getting vaccinated at a County clinic while supplies last. 

To reduce wait times at the County’s vaccination clinics, residents are strongly encouraged to go to health.oswegocounty.com/vaccines to make an appointment.

Oswego County developed a portal for residents to report positive at-home COVID-19 test results, exposure to the virus and get the necessary isolation/quarantine paperwork for schools and employers. Go to https://health.oswegocounty.com/COVID-19 and click on the appropriate link. 

Test results received from doctor’s offices, pharmacies and other testing sites DO NOT need to be self-reported. However, if isolation orders are needed for school, employers or other reasons, people can request these documents using the portal’s “Report a Positive (Laboratory) Test” option.  

The health department encourages residents who test positive to immediately notify any close contacts. The close contact should then go to the State’s website at https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/new-york-state-contact-tracing to find out if they meet the criteria for quarantine. If they do, they should report the exposure on the County Health Department’s online portal.
