ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Officials from the Monroe County Department of Health reported 300 new COVID-19 cases on Monday.

Officials also reported no new deaths, keeping the county’s total at 802 to date.

Monroe County is now averaging 460 new cases per day over the past week and the seven-day rolling average positivity rate is now 6.6%, the lowest number reported since December 3 (6.61%).

Health officials say 774 people in the Finger Lakes region are hospitalized with the virus, including 148 who are being treated in an ICU.

According to the health department, the region has 33% available hospital capacity, and 23% available ICU capacity.

According to the state’s surge and flex plan, if a region’s available hospital capacity trends to 10 percent, it would initiate a red zone designation which would effectively shut down all non-essential businesses.

Also Monday, Monroe County officials say the county would no longer be scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments due to limited supply.
