COVID-19 hospitalizations on the decline in Albany County


COVID-19-related hospitalizations are at their lowest number in Albany County since December 12, according to the county.

New COVID-19 figures released Wednesday show 50 county residents hospitalized with virus-related conditions, down a net of six from Tuesday. Intensive care hospitalizations are also down from Tuesday, dropping two to a total of eight.

There were 83 new positive cases reported Tuesday, with the county’s seven-day average of new cases dropping to 87.

“It’s always a great day when I don’t have to report any new COVID deaths in Albany County,” County Executive Dan McCoy said. “With our infection rate still falling as well, I’m hopeful this trend will continue and we can continue to move Albany County forward.”

The county is asking people who test positive using at-home kits to submit those results on their website through this online link.
