Editor’s Note: Each day health departments around the region are publishing updates to their websites, social media platforms, and sharing ‘situational’ data with local media. In an effort to bring all of that information together under one roof – we’ll be publishing daily ‘situational updates’. They will appear near the top of our homepage, and will be indexed at our own COVID-19 dashboard, which can be found by visiting www.fingerlakes1.com/coronavirus. Note that for counties that do not publish written updates – we will summarize the visual reports they share on those platforms or with local media.
This is your situational update for Friday, December 18th. Take a look at what local health officials are saying in your county as the day progresses. Each county issues updates at different times of day. However, all of the counties we’re tracking are publishing daily updates.
