State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie didn’t attend yesterday’s State of the State address, as he’s quarantining in his Albany home after testing positive for COVID-19. He says he is symptom-free and urged unvaccinated New Yorkers to get the shot.
The county’s COVID-19 death count since Monday is up four to 1,024. The number of active COVID cases has ballooned from 8,645 to 14,175, and the number of residents in the hospital with confirmed cases of coronavirus is up from 77 to 124, a jump of 47.
