Six new individuals have been placed on precautionary quarantine due to travel from restricted states.

Two people in the community are under mandatory isolation, 37 people are under mandatory community quarantine, and 106 people in precautionary community quarantine. The number of recoveries remain the same at 230.

The Livingston County Department of Public Health reported one new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Thursday, bringing the county’s total to 211.

The county did report two recoveries on Friday, bringing its total to 187.

The county has 16 actives cases.

The active cases include 10 in Geneseo, three in Mount Morris, and one each in Avon, Dansville and Livonia.

SUNY Geneseo reported eight active cases within the college community, which may include students and staff. The college has 20 students in quarantine, according to its COVID-19 dashboard.

Two college cases have recovered since Sept. 1.

An individual in quarantine may have had close contact with a positive individual and is in quarantine to keep away from others until a positive or negative for COVID-19 determination can be made.

The county Department of Health does not break out data specific to local colleges and universities, as it does for nursing homes within the county. The department has previously advised that data on its COVID-19 tracking map may not match data from local colleges and universities. The county reports a positive case based on where a student is residing. If the student returns home to isolate outside of Livingston County, it is counted as a positive case in that county. If the student remains in Livingston County, it is counted as a case in Livingston County.

Livingston County has administered 23,724 tests for COVID-19, with 23,513 negative results, according to the county’s COVID-19 tracking map. That has resulted in an infection rate among those tested of 0.89 percent.

The county has had eight deaths attributed to COVID-19.
