JEFFERSON COUNTY, N.Y. (WWTI) — On Tuesday, mandatory COVID-19 isolations increased by 30 due to new cases.
This was confirmed by Jefferson County Public Health in a daily COVID-19 update which also reported 35 new cases.

The number of positive tests represents unduplicated cases. If an individual recovers and later tests positive again, the number of positive cases won’t increase to reflect that case.
A duplicate case affects the number of recovered cases reported, as that number would decrease if someone retests positive. That case would be added to the number of hospitalized cases or those in mandatory isolation, depending on their situation.
