Wyoming County Says: 'Metrics Decreasing as January Ends'
Covid-19 Update Offers Contrasting Report: '8 coronavirus-related deaths
in Wyoming and Genesee counties'


Eight COVID-19 related deaths were reported over a one-week period in Wyoming and Genesee counties. Five were reported in Wyoming County — a rare jump in the county that had seen no such deaths for the past few weeks. The county, however, is otherwise experiencing a decrease in daily case reports, officials said in their weekly update. They described it as a positive sign and urged people to continue precautions.

“Please continue with protective measures that will allow these declines to continue and protect our most vulnerable residents,” the officials said. To keep workplaces and schools open, Wyoming County officials recommend wearing a mask when indoors or at crowded outdoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status. They are also asking people to stay home when sick and get tested if they suspect COVID-19.

Area residents are also reminded to isolate if they test positive and let their close contacts know they may have been exposed. Here’s a county-by-county look at the most recent data:
