24 Year Old Covid Positive Hornell Man, Has Died, 201 New Cases

The Steuben County Public Health Department received notification of two COVID-related deaths. This brings the total number of COVID deaths in Steuben County to 262.

One individual was a male resident of the City of Hornell who died at the age of 24 and one was a male resident of the Town of Erwin who died at the age of 62.

201 more have tested positive for COVID since Monday’s update. Sadly, 2 more Steuben residents have passed. Thankfully, 149 more have recovered.

Vaccines, including booster shots, and masking are the best defense against the current surge. Current reports indicate that the Omicron variant is highly contagious. Masking cuts down on the amount of virus that you could be directly exposed to and vaccines and boosters work to prepare your body for how to respond to and fight against the virus if you are exposed.
Get vaccinated or boosted at our clinic on Friday from 10 am – 2 pm at the Civil Defense Center in Bath by registering at www.steubencony.org/covid or walking in during clinic hours, or find another clinic at www.vaccines.gov. Friday’s clinic is our last clinic currently scheduled for this year.
