UTICA, N.Y. – Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente announced nine new cases of coronavirus during his briefing Wednesday, bringing the county total to 55.

So far, 651 people have been tested, and 383 have returned negative results. There are still 213 results pending.

The county has 358 people in mandatory quarantine and 270 people in precautionary quarantine. There have been 545 people discharged from quarantine as of April 1.

During the conference, Picente also said Utica College is making room at Burrstone House for first responders in need of temporary housing. Any emergency workers who’d like more information should call 315-792-3472 or email: emermgt@utica.edu.

Another college looking to help in the fight against coronavirus is SUNY Polytechnic Institute. The county has teamed up with SUNY Poly to fund the production of 3D printed manufacturing parts for face shields that will be used by local health care workers.

According to Picente, the face masks are being printed all day, every day in the printing labs at the college’s Center for Global Advanced Manufacturing. The college expects to produce 80 face shields each day.
