Feb 3, 2021 – Allegany Co Reports One Death And 20 New Cases

A 75-year-old male is the 54th Allegany County resident to pass way as a result of COVID-19.

The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) is sad to report to our residents and community there has been one additional COVID-19 related death bringing our total to 54. He was a 75-year-old male who developed complications due to COVID-19 and was unable to overcome his illness despite aggressive medical treatment. We extend our deepest condolences to the gentleman’s family, and we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.

It is imperative that Allegany County residents continue to wear a mask, follow social/physical distancing protocols when possible, and wash your hands often to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

If you have general COVID-19 questions, you may also call the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 for more information.

As of 3:10 p.m. on February 3, Allegany County’s statistics are as follows:

Effective later today, the Allegany County Department of Health will begin reporting statistics via a County Dashboard at https://arcg.is/0KGnyu. While we will continue to send press releases with the daily statistics for approximately a week, we are transitioning to this means of reporting in an effort to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information in conjunction with the NYSDOH statistics as some entities report directly to New York State and not to the County Health Department. You will notice that some statistics will migrate to the NYS reported numbers (to include deaths, tests administered, etc.) in an effort to mitigate discrepancies between data sets.*
