NIAGARA COUNTY, N.Y. (WKBW) — Niagara County officials are providing daily updates on confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the county.
As of May 26, there were a total of 1,004 confirmed cases in the county. A total of 59 people have died, 636 people have recovered.
The Niagara County Public Health Director says the county "would continue to reach out to those who came in close, direct contact with a positive case..." but, "will no longer be doing full-scale community contact tracing as it has little to no clinical value at this point."
