    Thanks for giving information as to the location of the one person (the inmate) and no details, once again, about anyone else. To just keep telling the community about positive tests, without more specific information, is adding to the fear factor. People need to be better informed.

    Breaking News. 10 people in Allegany County twisted their ankle yesterday. 3 were teenagers. 4 were from local nursing homes. None required hospitalization.

    Welch’s, only way FSU students are counted In our group is if they’re from Allegany County. They may be included in the counts but not all of them that test positive would be.

    @ Jim…. I’m just going to assume that all 10 of those falls in Allegany County were COVID related.
