Poloncarz noted that some of the individuals in the county who have died from COVID-19 are in their 30s and 40s.

“Just because you are young, doesn’t mean you are not vulnerable,” Poloncarz said.

Yesterday, Catholic Health announced that 17 patients and residents at Father Baker Manor in Orchard Park have tested positive for COVID-19. The number is now 39, Poloncarz said.

He added that the county is concerned about the more than 130 patients at the manor, some of who are in their 80s and 90s, and said the county is working with Catholic Health on treatment and containment.

Tomorrow, Erie County will add a zip code feature to its COVID-19 map. So far, the largest cluster of cases includes people in Cheektowaga and Buffalo’s east side.
