At least two people who have tested positive for coronavirus were at a popular summer gathering spot on Skaneateles Lake on July 4th, according to Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon.
McMahon, in a tweet, encouraged those who were at the Cove on Skaneateles Lake on July 4th to get a coronavirus test because of the confirmed cases.
Onondaga County recorded 29 new coronavirus cases on Saturday along with 34 Wednesday but just 19 Friday.
Two people died on Friday. The county reported no new deaths Saturday.
Busy day dealing with Covid 19. So if you were at the Cove(Skaneateles Lake) it is a good idea to get a test. We have had two confirmed cases from July 4th. Very thourough contact tracing, but this virus is in multiple social circles and many people are testing asymptomatic.
