Cayuga County sees testing lag as PPE, cotton swabs remain difficult to keep in stock

Throughout the region public health officials have said testing remains a big challenge.

While Governor Andrew Cuomo has said that testing levels are rising across the state – they aren’t rising fast enough for some communities.

The Auburn Citizen reports that Cayuga County is one of those places. They say around 9 people per thousand are being tested at the moment, due to a lack of PPE and cotton swabs.

The Governor set a goal of 30 people per thousand.

Over the weekend, Governor Cuomo announced a buying consortium to help purchasing equipment and supplies. Several states are now involved in that process.
