WAMPSVILLE, N.Y. – Madison County officials held a press conference Friday to discuss coronavirus numbers and the county’s plan for the near future.

According to Madison County Health Director Eric Faisst, there have been more than 1,100 people tested as of Friday, with 126 testing positive overall.

There have been five coronavirus-related deaths in the county since March.

Officials say with only 15 active cases in the county as of Friday, they are looking to move forward with reopening and getting people back to work. The county also lifted a voluntary stay-at-home order earlier this week.

“Our active case numbers are on the decline and plateau and we are seeing more people recover from this horrible virus, and that is why yesterday we lifted the voluntary stay at home orders. We asked residents to alternate days going out for necessary items we also lifted that,” said John Becker, chairman of the county board of supervisors.

Faisst says beginning next week, Madison County hospitals will be doing elective surgeries and the county highway department will start working again.
