TESTING TALLY

500+ YESTERDAY

By JIM KEVLIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

COOPERSTOWN – More than 500 people experiencing cold- or flu-like symptoms called Bassett Healthcare Network’s Coronavirus Hotline yesterday, spokesman Karen Huxtable-Hooker reports.

With 200 each calling Saturday and Sunday and people continuing to call today, that likely pushes the number over 1,000.  The spokesman didn’t immediately have numbers on how many of those people were then referred to testing.
