COVID hospitalizations double in Chautauqua County | News, Sports, Jobs

Kaleida Health updates visitor guidelines for non-COVID patients

In addition to hospitalizations, the county said it’s seeing the highest rates of infections among school-aged children to date. “The Delta strain of the coronavirus is very contagious and is especially making those unvaccinated very, very ill,” said Christine Schuyler, County Public Health Director. “I’m saddened and frustrated to see so many people struggling to breathe, hospitalized, going on ventilators, and many survivors left dealing with long-term health impacts. If you are not vaccinated, you are really taking a chance.” As Sunday, 59.9% of the county’s total population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine; 53.9% were fully vaccinated. The rates are 68.1% and 62% for those 12 and older; 69.9% and 63.6% for those 18 and older; and 91.7% and 81.2% for those 65 and older, respectively.

“Our county is approaching that peak this week,” the health department said in a news release. On Jan. 13 of this year, there were 57 people with the virus in the hospital in the county, the highest during the pandemic.

From Nov. 14 to Nov. 20, the county recorded 663 new cases of the virus and four new deaths. The county Health Department on Wednesday released its latest COVID statistics, noting that 50 people were hospitalized as of Tuesday. There were 23 people hospitalized in stats released last week.
