Broome County sees a decline in coronavirus cases; the health department shares why

first_img(WBNG) — Broome County Health Department Director Rebecca Kaufman suggests the decline of cases could be due to more people following stay-at-home orders. The growing number of cases was cited as a result of community spread. In recent weeks, many local restaurants have turned to take-out and delivery options in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus. To see Broome County’s current numbers, visit their COVID-19 tracker. “It’s reducing density of people, it’s making sure you’re with a small group of people, not large gatherings. The more you can stay at home, the more we can do to level out the cases,” said Kaufman. Just over a week ago, Broome County Executive Jason Garnar called for all county residents to stay at home amid a rising number of cases in the area. Even with the declining cases, Kaufman says we are not out of the woods just yet. last_img
