COVID-19 Surge in County
Health Department Updates Data and Encourages Vaccination
Updates to Contact Tracing, Isolation and Quarantine Protocols Announced
MAYVILLE, N.Y.: – The Chautauqua County Health Department (CCHD) is providing an update on COVID-19 data for the week ending November 20. Chautauqua County is currently experiencing increased rates of COVID-19, including hospitalizations and the highest rates of infections among school-aged children to date.
“The Delta strain of the coronavirus is very contagious and is especially making those unvaccinated very, very ill,” said Christine Schuyler, County Public Health Director. “I’m saddened and frustrated to see so many people struggling to breathe, hospitalized, going on ventilators, and many survivors left dealing with long-term health impacts. If you are not vaccinated, you are really taking a chance.”
