UTICA, N.Y. – More than 100 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Oneida County, according to County Executive Anthony Picente and the county health department.

Picente announced 10 new cases, bringing the total to 105. Of those people, 19 have recovered from the virus.

There are 653 people who have tested negative with 206 results still pending.

There are now 14 people hospitalized within the county, and one person still being treated outside of Oneida County. Picente says there are also 28 people currently in the hospital receiving treatment and awaiting test results.

There are 640 people in isolation with 308 in mandatory quarantine.

Picente is also ordering all visitors to county buildings to wear face masks or other coverings to help prevent the spread of the virus. This comes after CDC guidance last week advising people to wear masks or cover their faces in public whenever possible.

After complaints of mass gatherings and businesses allegedly not following state mandates on social distancing, Picente says the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office will now be enforcing the guidelines at essential businesses.

The county already has a list of offending businesses from New Hartford, New York Mills and Trenton. Picente says they will get a warning first, then a second notice could result in fines or revocation of health and alcohol permits.

“These businesses know who they are," said Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol. “There’s no one who can deny they don’t know what’s happening across the country and around the globe today. This is important, but me having to send a detail out to do surveillance on businesses that are harming the public by staying open, our resources can be better spent.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in his press conference Monday that violation fines were increased from $500 to $1,000.
