CANTON — St. Lawrence County Public Health Director Dana O. McGuire announced Sunday that the number of positive COVID-19 cases in St. Lawrence County has risen to 13.
The first case was reported Wednesday, and the number has been rising steadily since.
The biggest jump occurred Saturday when five tests were returned positive for a total of 11 cases.
As of Saturday, only two counties in the state — both in the Finger Lakes region — are without positive tests results.
Ms. McGuire reported last week that tests results were being returned faster than at first when it was taking as much as seven days for tests to be processed.
Ms. McGuire also reported the disease has spread throughout the county with positive results in Massena, North Lawrence, Ogdensburg, Potsdam and St. Regis Falls.
