To give you an idea how quickly it’s spreading right now, it took a little over 3 months… from March 27th until July 1st before Cattaraugus County reported 94 cases of COVID-19.
Now, that’s been matched in just two days with 52 cases reported Tuesday.
The 42 new cases brings the total in Cattaraugus county over the 700 mark, with 727 cases reported since the pandemic began.
246 of those cases have been contracted by people who were 30 or younger.
The vast majority, almost 64 percent, have been in the southeast part of the county.
Gov. Cuomo will defer a $25,000 pay raise scheduled for next year and is asking other statewide officials to do the same as New York faces a growing budget deficit.
Cuomo said Wednesday that he will forgo the salary increase, which would have upped his pay from $225,000 to $250,000.
