County Executive McCoy Provides an Update on COVID-19

Post Date:04/12/2020 1:11 pm

Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy announced today that as of this morning, there are now 453 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Albany County. Additionally, there are now 638 people under mandatory quarantine and 74 people under precautionary quarantine. The death toll for the county stands at twelve.

With 40 people now hospitalized, the hospitalization rate for Albany County stands at 8.8%. Thirteen of those individuals are now in Intensive Care Units (ICU). 

County Executive McCoy also reminds everyone that the Albany County Rail Trail is open but to remember to keep everyone safe, people must follow the CDC guidelines to protect yourself and others by staying six feet apart. 

Citing recent studies that demonstrate many people who are carrying COVID-19 do not showing any symptoms, the New York State Department of Health has issued new guidance that supports the use of “cloth face coverings” when out in public and social distancing can be difficult. That includes in essential business places like grocery stores, pharmacies and hardware stores. Coverings should fit tightly across an individual’s face and cover their nose and mouth.

For those who are experiencing stress, anxiety or even depression during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, County Executive McCoy also announced that the County Mental Health Support Line has expanded its hours and is now available seven days a week from 8am to 8pm. Residents can access that line at (518) 269-6634. The County Executive is also offering videos on coping, AAU martial arts, exercise and more. Anyone experiencing a psychiatric emergency should still call the Albany County Mobile Crisis Team at (518) 549–6500.

Daily briefings are recorded and may be seen with slides on, the County’s Facebook page, public access channels—Open Stage Media in Schenectady and Channel Albany in the city of Albany and on Capitol OTB—Channel 1250 Spectrum and Channel 467 on Fios.

For all COVID-19 questions and concerns, residents are encouraged to use United Way’s 2-1-1 hotline as well as the State Department of Health’s hot line at 888-364-3065.
