The Allegany County Health Department has reported four additional confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Allegany County, bringing the total to 63. The new cases include one staff member and one resident at a nursing facility with previously reported cases as well as an individual who was recently released from that nursing home.  In an unrelated case, a female in her 60s has tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating at home.

The health department also reported that one of the previously identified coronavirus cases at the nursing home has died.  The resident was a female in her 90s. This is the second COVID-19-related death to occur in Allegany County and the third attributed to the county by the state data. The third individual was a former Allegany resident who was living in a Carroll County nursing home at the time of his illness.
