Here’s a county-by-county look at the data:

One new case of COVID-19 in Livingston County was reported by the Livingston County Department of Public Health, bringing its total to 203.
The health department is reporting 10 active cases, including five in Geneseo. The new case was a Geneseo resident, according to the county’s COVID-19 data tracking map.
The other active cases include two each in Dansville and Mount Morris and one in Livonia.
SUNY Geneseo, which reports data separately from Livingston County, said Tuesday it had seven active cases with seven students in isolation. An additional nine students were in quarantine.
A person is placed in isolation because they have tested positive for COVID-19. 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.
SUNY Geneseo updates a COVID-19 dashboard every business day on its website, Geneseo.edu.
The county department of health previously advised that data on its COVID-19 tracking map may not match data from local colleges and universities as 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.
The county has had 185 recoveries. The county has also had eight deaths attributed to COVID-19.
Nearly 22,800 tests for COVID-19 have been conducted among Livingston County residents. The 22,783 tests have returned 22,580 negative results, representing an infection rate among those tested of about 0.89 percent.
