COVID and the Greater Ithaca Area, August 23rd

The count of new COVID cases in Tompkins County climbed 50% last week, from 71 to 107. The Tompkins County Health Department reported that 80 of 87 COVID samples tested were the more contagious Delta variant. New cases in New York State overall leapt from 23,386 in the week ending August 7th to 29,232. That’s bad, but it’s about a 25% week over week increase, rather than the 70% of a month ago.
