Contact tracing on positive cases is ongoing to identify close contacts, including household members, employers and others the individual may have come in contact with during the infectious period. 

Test kits are in short supply and labs are backlogged – Wyoming County residents should continue to stay home as much as possible and practice social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Call your healthcare provider for advice and avoid the Emergency Room unless your symptoms are severe.
