MAYVILLE, N.Y. — The Chautauqua County Department of Health is reporting 53 new cases of COVID-19 in the county, the majority of them at an assisted living facility in Jamestown.
Forty-five cases were reported at the Tanglewood Manor from this weekend. Forty-three are residents and two are staff members.
Chautauqua County Public Health Director Christine Schuyler says most patients have either no symptoms or mild symptoms. However, a few did have moderate symptoms.
Eight of those residents from Tanglewood Manor were hospitalized for COVID-19 related illnesses. Once they are treated and able to be discharged from the hospital, they will return to the facility with a specialized unit for COVID cases.
Two residents from Memory Garden, also managed by the Tanglewood Group, are also hospitalized.
“There is community spread,” said Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel during a press conference.
