Effective February 3, 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 through February 10, 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.
