The Allegany County Health Department is reporting an additional death and 28 new cases in the county since Monday. This brings the cumulative case count to 164 deaths, and 5,799 positive cases. The county is now well below the number of cases per 100,000 population; the county’s figure is at 46.46, while the state number is 53.39. The positivity rate is now at 6.92 per cent, while the statewide average is 8.53. On Monday, the health department announced availability of more than 1,000 initial appointments for those age 75 and older to receive COVID-19 vaccination. Those appointments filled up very quickly, and on Tuesday evening a notice was posted that no more appointments were currently available. The health department will add appointment dates as more vaccine is received, so the public is urged to pay attention to local media, social media, and the health department website for announcements regarding appointment availability.
