BREAKING: A one-day record of 268 Sullivan County residents tested positive for COVID on Wednesday.
The data was released by Governor Kathy Hochul this afternoon as the state also broke its single-day record for new positives.
Since the pandemic began, 12,011 residents have tested positive out of a County population of 78,624.
At 3 pm today, the County also revealed:
--a record 1,259 active cases. smashing the previous record of 942 cases on December 29, 2021.
--a record 2,104 residents who are quarantined/isolated, surpassing 1,710 locals quarantined/isolated as of yesterday.
There are currently 23 residents hospitalized, including one in the intensive care unit and on a ventilator.
Meanwhile, Garnet Health/Harris reported that, as of Wednesday, 77 of 85 staffed acute care beds were occupied. (That's a big improvement since December 27 when 84 of the 85 acute care beds were occupied, but that could change rapidly with the record number of new cases).
Ten of 11 staffed beds in the Intensive Care Unit also had patients as of yesterday.
However, five staffed acute care beds at Garnet Health/Callicoon were not occupied as of yesterday, according to state data.
