RE: Increase in Allegany County Positive COVID-19 cases
DATE: May 4, 2021
News Release:
The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) is seeing a small increase of COVID-19 positive cases. April 30 saw 18 new positive cases, May 1 had 15 new positive cases, and May 2 had 17 new positive cases for a total of 50 new positive COVID-19 cases in a 3-day period. We are also seeing an increase in positive cases in a younger population including cases severe enough to be hospitalized.

As COVID-19 moves into the second year we must remain diligent and continue to wear a mask, social distance, wash hands often, and get a COVID-19 vaccine. This increase of positive COVID-19 cases has been attributed to spread through family members and family gatherings. As the weather is getting warmer, summer events are being scheduled, people are traveling again, and businesses are opening up. We are asking County residents to help us stop the spread of COVID-19. ACDOH is asking County residents to continue having small events with those in your household. Here are some activities you might want to consider to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Allegany County:
• Get everyone, who is age 16 and over, in your household vaccinated.
• Encourage your extended family, co-workers, friends, neighbors, and those in your community to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
• Get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you have Moderna or Pfizer.
• Remember you need 14 days after your last COVID-19 vaccination to have full vaccine coverage.
• Attend outdoor events remembering to wear your mask and keep a social distance, especially if unvaccinated.
• Continue to use social media to contact family and friends that do not live in your household.
• Have a virtual dinner and share recipes with friends and family so everyone can enjoy their favorites.
• Shopping online rather than in-person or using a curbside pick-up.
• Watching sports events, parades and movies from home.
• Remember if anyone has symptoms of COVID-19 or comes in contact with a positive case, they should isolate and get tested for COVID.
• Always remember, when shopping in a store, to wear a mask covering your nose and mouth, keep a social distance of six feet, use hand sanitizer, and try to shop when the stores are not as busy.
All of these suggestions will help protect your family, relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers, the elderly, and staff and students in your local school. If you have general COVID-19 questions, you may also call the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 for more information.

https://www.alleganyco.com/news/community/acdoh-provides-an-update-on-covid-19-quarantine-procedures/

The New York State Department of Health has issued update to the health advisory for quarantine. This guidance update aligns with the New York State Travel Advisory that went into effect on April 10, 2021, and aligns with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements and recommendations for domestic and international travel released April 2, 2021.

Quarantine Requirements:
Fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID-19 who are asymptomatic (having no symptoms of COVID-19) do not need to quarantine after exposure to COVID-19.

Fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID-19 who have COVID-19 symptoms must isolate themselves, talk to their healthcare provider about concerns, and be tested for COVID-19.

Recently recovered individuals exposed to COVID-19 who are asymptomatic (having no symptoms of COVID-19), who have been recently diagnosed with laboratory confirmed COVID-19, and have since recovered, are not required to retest and quarantine provided the new exposure is within 3 months after the date of symptom onset from the initial COVID-19 infection or date of first positive diagnostic test if asymptomatic during illness.

Individuals who are neither fully vaccinated nor recently recovered and are exposed to COVID-19:
• Individuals who have been exposed to someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19, who are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from COVID-19 in the previous 3 months, are required to quarantine for 10 days after exposure.
• Testing is not required to end quarantine if no symptoms have been reported during the quarantine period. However, a test should be sought immediately if any symptoms develop during the 14 days after exposure.
The Allegany County Department of Health will continue to identify individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19. Contract tracing interviews now include questions about vaccination status and previous COVID infection. Contact tracers may validate reports of vaccination status in NYSIIS or CIR, the statewide immunization registry, during the interview. Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to quarantine after exposure.

This guidance applies only to asymptomatic individuals who have been exposed to COVID-19 and who have not tested positive as a result of a recent exposure. Consistent with ongoing NYSDOH requirements, individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate.
