Two more cases of COVID-19 confirmed in Oneida County
The Oneida County Health Department (OCHD) has received notification a second and third person in Oneida County have been diagnosed with novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19). The individuals are in their 60's and 80's and are unrelated to each other or the first case of COVID-19 diagnosed on Friday, March 27. The individuals are currently in isolation. County health officials are working to determine how the individuals may have become infected and are contacting others with whom the positive cases had close contact with.

With the two additional cases identified, it is reasonable to believe that there is now community spread of the virus in Oneida County. The term "community spread" means there is no known source of the disease, such as a recent contact with an infected person or travel from an area with a high number of cases.
