ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Officials announced Monday afternoon there are now eight COVID-19 deaths in Monroe County and 257 confirmed cases.
Of the 257 confirmed cases, 42 are hospitalized and 25 of those patients are receiving treatment in an Intensive Care Unit.
At this time, officials say there are 490 under mandatory quarantine. To date, 76 people have been resolved and released from isolation.
Department of health officials say deaths, and those who have resolved, will still be counted in the total case count.
A statement from health officials said, “Monroe County continues to ask residents to stay home and practice social distancing. We should all assume that we have been exposed to COVID-19, even if we do not have recognizable symptoms, and could be spreading the virus to people who are vulnerable to more severe symptoms.”
A Johns Hopkins University professor and her graduate student have created an interactive map to capture all confirmed COVID-19 cases, fatalities and recoveries.
