Albany County's 64 new COVID-19 cases touted as good news

Nov 16, 2020 6:15 am
The local COVID-19 news is so bad, that when Albany County announced 64 new cases Nov. 15, it was considered good news by the Times Union. That's because 64 was fewer than half the 147 cases that Albany County announced the day before. Meanwhile, Ulster and Dutchess counties announced the highest levels of coronavirus infection in five months, the Daily Freeman reports. A high school student in the Cairo-Durham school tested positive, but school officials are not halting in-person learning. More other schools are, such as the College of Saint Rose, which is going remote Nov. 17. The Town of Nassau, the Village of Chatham, and Columbia County all closed their municipal buildings to the public last week. Rensselaer County confirmed one new death and 15 new COVID-19 cases on Nov. 15, with the ages of the patients ranging from 10 months to 84 years old. Rensselaer County is also dealing with nursing home employee shortages, the Times Union reports. Besides shutting down bars, restaurants, and gyms to in-person business after 10 p.m., state officials are doing little to slow the ever-expanding spread of the disease in New York.
