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.

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.
