    A rise in COVID-19 cases in Dutchess County has largely been traced back to a residential facility which has been placed under a temporary quarantine. The latest information from the Dutchess County Department of Health found that there are currently 138 active COVID-19 cases, 48 of which are in Beacon, by far the most in the county. According to Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, the bulk of those new cases have been linked to the Hedgewood Home for Adults assisted living facility in Beacon. The facility accounted for at least 30 of the new cases, which were directly tied to the facility. In response, the county’s Department of Behavioral and Community Health has issued an order requiring residents in the facility to quarantine, as well as any staff members who test positive. “Our job as individual members of this community remains unchanged,” Beacon Mayor Lee Kyriacou stated while addressing the...
    The latest weekly COVID-19 outbreaks report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment includes almost forty new entries, the highest number in over four months. Many are linked to child-care centers, schools and colleges, as exemplified by flare-ups at four separate Greek houses affiliated with the University of Denver. Still, the most jaw-dropping statistic involves the University of Colorado Boulder, site of previous outbreaks at dormitories, as well as multiple fraternities and sororities there — so many that on September 22, CU instruction temporarily transitioned from in-person teaching to remote learning for at least two weeks. According to CDPHE data shared on September 23, the number of students and staffers who've likely contracted the novel coronavirus now tops 1,300. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two...
    9BOUDLER, Colo. (CBS4) – The University of Colorado Boulder is now the site of Colorado’s largest active coronavirus outbreak. The number are staggering compared to other outbreaks across the state. (credit: CBS) The university has more than 1,200 confirmed cases. Most are students but a dozen staff members have also tested positive. The school officially switched to remote learning for all students on Wednesday as a response to get the number of COVID-19 cases under control. CU said it wanted to step up prevention, including working the city of Boulder to cut down potential parties. As of Sept. 21, 14 students were cited for “serious public health violations” some of which were associated with large gatherings. As more than 250 students moved into isolation on campus, some parents raised concerns about the lack of monitoring and guidance. CU has more confirmed cases than the next two largest outbreaks combines. The...

    SAN ANTONIO – As the coronavirus pandemic persists, so does the desire for a return to normalcy. Many college students in the San Antonio area have decided to attend classes on campus. About a month into the fall semester, school officials say they’re keeping a close eye on the situation to make sure the COVID-19 numbers stay as low as possible. “We require everyone who is coming onto one of our campuses to check in with an app every day. It gives you a list of symptoms that you would pick from, and it tells you whether you are allowed to come to campus or not,” said Anne Gomez, chief communications officer at Our Lady of the Lake University.

    BISMRCK, N.D. (AP) — Daily coronavirus data in North Dakota set four records on Friday, as active cases of COVID-19 neared 3,000, deaths continued to mount in Burleigh County, and the state issued an emergency call for volunteer staffing at long-term care facilities that are seeing a surge in cases.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The University of Memphis athletic department said Wednesday night that it has conducted over 3,500 COVID-19 tests and has had 81 positive results, with 46 being considered active. Earlier Wednesday, the Shelby County Health Department said there were 42 active cases in a cluster in the athletic department. “Due to privacy concerns, names will not be released, and impacted sports will not be identified,” the university said in statement. “ However, a recent report that attributed 42 current cases to the football program is significantly overstated.” The 16th-ranked Tigers have paused all football activities. Officials hope to resume Saturday, a day after a previously scheduled game against Houston that was postponed last week by the American Athletic Conference. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.

    By ANDREW DeMILLO, Associated Press LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas on Friday reported a new daily record for confirmed coronavirus cases, surpassing the one-day record increase set a week ago. The Department of Health reported 1,107 people tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19, bringing the state's total confirmed cases since the pandemic began to 67,911. The state reported an additional 78 people were positive through antigen testing. The increase comes after four straight days of less than 400 new cases. Gov. Asa Hutchinson said he's not considering new restrictions, but said the state may look at action in other areas such as contact tracing if it continues seeing multiple days of cases exceeding 1,000. “You don't want to take action broadly in terms of restrictions and businesses if they're not related to an increase in cases," Hutchinson said. Colleges and universities remained a major driver of the...
    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas reported nearly 1,300 active coronavirus cases at its colleges and universities Thursday, as well as 525 in its public schools.

    By MARGARET STAFFORD, Associated Press LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) — Meatpacking plants and correctional facilities continue to be the main sites of active COVID-19 clusters in Kansas, with each reporting thousands of cases, according to data released Wednesday by the state health department. It was the first time the Kansas Department of Health and environment publicized specific active COVID-19 clusters. The state identified 117 active clusters, involving 5,099 cases, 192 hospitalizations and 63 deaths. The information was released hours after several large Kansas business groups released a letter to Gov. Laura Kelly asking her not to identify specific clusters, saying it could harm businesses as they try to recover from the pandemic. “We are unsure what the benefit of this disclosure offers, other than a public shaming of businesses where an outbreak occurs,” Kansas Chamber President and CEO Alan Cobb said in the letter. The letter was signed by the Chamber,...

A spokesperson for SMU said the school requested the quarantine of members of Sigma Chi who live at the fraternity house.

The chapter organization is providing additional information to the fraternity members. The University’s contact tracers are in the process of confirming numbers of positive cases and people who may have come into close contact with the infected individuals,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

    Josep María Aguiló FOLLOW Palma de Mallorca Updated: 08/25/2020 11:24 PM Save The Ministry of Health of the Balearic Government has reported this Tuesday that in the last twenty-four hours they have been notified 908 new positive cases of coronavirus in the Archipelago compared to yesterday. In the last two weeks, the infections had remained, on average, somewhat above 200 new cases per day, which a priori seemed to mean that this Tuesday there would have been an exponential growth of Covid-19 infections in the Islands. However, official sources from the Ministry of Health have clarified that the high total figure provided this Tuesday includes cases that had not yet been accounted for in previous days, so the real number of new infections compared to yesterday would be significantly lower than the 908 cases reported this Tuesday. In any case, even taking into account this circumstance of numerical lag,...
    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The number of new coronavirus cases reported in South Dakota on Tuesday dipped to 80 after a surge over the weekend. But the Department of Health reported test results for only 216 people, and 37% of the test results were positive. That's a sign that there may be more infections than test results are showing. It's also one of the lowest numbers for daily tests reported in the last several months. The number of active infections decreased statewide, but it is still at one of its highest points since the Department of Health started posting the number. There are currently 1,530 people with active infections. A total of 11,505 people have tested positive for COVID-19 statewide. About 85% of those people have fully recovered, while 161 have died.

    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The first state reports of COVID-19 cases connected to child care facilities show combined active cases across the largest counties in North Texas are in the single digits. Total cases in any one facility have been limited to 10 or less and cases among employees have been nearly double those among children. The daily reporting from Texas Health and Human Services comes as school districts continue to consider reopening plans and families debate education options. The data relies on child care facilities to self-report cases and does not provide information on total enrollment or employment numbers to determine the infection rate. In Tarrant Count though, Kara Waddell, the President and CEO of Child Care Associations, said she believes the data is accurate locally. Waddell said the organization, which has provided guidance to county officials on child care issues during the pandemic, has offered free cleaning services...

    CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming has reported 61 confirmed cases of the coronavirus on Thursday, officials said. The university tested more than 10,000 students and staffers ahead of the fall semester, which is scheduled to begin on Monday.

    There are many notable aspects in the latest report about COVID-19 outbreaks from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The number of incidents has now surpassed 500, the volume of new entries demonstrates that better case counts and hospitalization totals have not yet translated to a big dip in site-based explosions of the novel coronavirus, and the presence of three religious facilities on the roster raises fresh questions about the safety of in-person services. But arguably the most notable developments involve outbreaks at a trio of locations, including Boulder's iconic Pasta Jay's restaurant, that have already suffered one — proof that making it through such a terrifying episode hardly guarantees that more won't follow. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or the like are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with...

    The latest outbreak report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment documents hard hits by COVID-19 at Colorado State University. A campus fraternity house has been declared an outbreak, as has the entire CSU athletics program, with the school's football program instituting a two-week practice pause as a result.

    Active church outbreaks of COVID-19 in West Virginia expanded from four counties Friday to seven counties Monday, and they account for 75 confirmed cases, Gov. Jim Justice said. Church is the ideal setting to spread the coronavirus, and worshipers should social distance from people who are not in their immediate family, said Justice, who also reminded residents the law requires them to wear a face mask during indoor worship services. Many elderly people attend church services and ignoring the guidelines could result in their deaths, he said. “I know these things are really difficult to do,” Justice said in a statement. “But, for right now, they have to be done because, if we don’t, all we’re going to do is lose more people. We could very well lose a lot of our grandmothers and grandfathers – people who have so much wisdom to still continue to pass on...
    Ashmus (CDCR photo)  Another California death row inmate has died from what appears to be complications of the coronavirus amid an outbreak sweeping through San Quentin State Prison, authorities said Monday. Troy Ashmus, 58, died Monday, according to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Ashmus was the seventh death row prisoner and the 13th overall at San Quentin to die from confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infections. Ashmus was sent to death row in 1986. He was convicted of raping 7-year-old Marcella Davis, who had biked to a Sacramento park in May 1984. Plastic bags, cellophane and the girl’s own shorts were shoved down her throat, prosecutors said.

Houston's Harris County — the most populous county in Texas — has been the hardest-hit in the Lone Star State.

    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — The city of Chattanooga plans to keep testing local wastewater for the prevalence of COVID-19 into 2021 after a study in May that showed thousands more cases of the virus than what was reported by local health officials, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported. Throughout May, the city’s wastewater treatment center sent samples to Massachusetts-based Biobot. At first, Biobot did not detect any coronavirus traces, despite several dozen cases in the community. Then on May 26, Biobot projected 12,500 coronavirus infections in the county. At the time, the Hamilton County Health Department was reporting 717 infections. Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said that confirms what experts already know about the virus — "that we really have more infections than we think.” But he said not all of those projected cases may be people with active infections. “People can, even...

There were more than 45 new cases reported in Ulster County between Thursday, July 2, and Sunday, July 5, prompting Ryan to issue warning to his constituents that the fight isn’t over. According to Ryan, the spike is being attributed to graduation parties, a manufacturing facility, an apple orchard, and a softball team. “We need to recognize that we are still engaged in the fight against COVID-19,” Ryan said. “Now is not the time to let our guard down. “As we see cases continue to rise, we must double down on safety precautions which we know work—wearing masks, social distancing, and washing our hands—and continue to keep them up,” he continued. “We each have a part to play in ensuring the...
