Warren County Health Services had one new case of COVID-19 to report among Warren County residents as of Monday morning. This person had travelled to Warren County from a state that is on New York's travel advisory list, quarantined as the travel advisory requires, and sought a COVID-19 test as a precaution.

Warren County Health Services also confirmed a recovery of a previously diagnosed COVID-19 patient.

Health Services is currently monitoring eight (8) active cases, with no hospitalizations.

An important update on COVID-19 test results: Warren County Health Services Director Ginelle Jones said increased lag time in receiving test results has been occurring in recent weeks because of COVID case increases in other parts of the country. So anyone who feels ill should self-quarantine until they get their test results.

"Anyone with symptoms should contact their medical provider, get tested, assume they are positive, and stay home and self-quarantine until test results are received," Jones said.

COVID-19 symptoms can include fever, cough, loss of sense of smell or taste, fatigue, headache and chills. For more information, go to: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html
