Wyoming County Community Health System received notice from the New York State Department of Health that two residents of the Skilled Nursing Facility in Warsaw have tested positive for COVID-19. The source of the infections has not been determined.

Officials say the residents have been cared for in isolation since being tested. With assistance from state health department epidemiology staff, the health system is assisting efforts to trace the contact the patients may have had with staff and visitors.

Officials say staff members are being health screened  prior to their shifts, and they are taking aggressive infection control measures and are using personal protective equipment.

Enhanced visitor restrictions have been in place since last Wednesday and officials are asking concerned family members to not visit the facility, as it works to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The number for more information is 585-786-8940, ext 4701.
