COOPERSTOWN – A man who caught COVID-19 from someone who tested positive following the outbreak at the Copper Fox in Oneonta has died after a month in the hospital, according to Heidi Bond, Otsego County Public Health Director.
“This person didn’t go to the bar, but they contracted the disease through secondary spread from someone who did,” she said.
COOPERSTOWN – Thirty people tested positive for COVID-19 today, setting a new record for the number of cases reported in one day, according to Heidi Bond, county public health director.
Additionally, a fifth person has been hospitalized with the virus, bringing the county’s total to five, up one from last week.
The spike comes less than a week after the county Public Health Department reported a record-setting 18 cases in one day , prompting the Oneonta School District to go remote after students tested positive.
COOPERSTOWN – Four people have been hospitalized as COVID-19 numbers rise throughout the county, bringing the total number of infections to 90.
One of those hospitalized, Bond said, is a resident of a group home, where outbreaks began two weeks ago, although the others are not related to any particular cluster.
In the last two days, 29 cases have been reported, with 20 of those stemming from an outbreak at the Copper Fox. A similar exposure has been reported at the Beer Barrel, 19 ½ Fonda Ave in Oneonta, with Bond warning patrons that if you were at the Beer Barrel Nov 15-16, they need to quarantine and monitor symtoms fror 14 days..
