Nassau County Executive Laura Curran has released the following update to residents in regards to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic
“Nassau County’s COVID-19 positivity is 6.1%, with 812 out of 13,231 tests reporting positive. Nassau’s 7 day average is 5.93%. There are 568 COVID-19 patients hospitalized in Nassau County, with 65 in ICU and 33 intubated. Sad to report that we’ve lost four residents to COVID-19.
“The risk of contracting COVID in Nassau County is higher than it has been in months, which calls for increased vigilance from all of us. I know how difficult it is to forgo New Year’s traditions, but we only need to keep it small a little bit longer. Together, we keep each other safe, avoid lockdowns, and build momentum for a strong recovery in 2021.”
