Livingston County is continuing to see an increase in COVID-19 cases and officials there currently are seeing a positivity rate of around 30%.

Steve Schieber, chief executive officer for Saint Luke’s Health System’s critical access region, said medical officials are aware the county has a high rate of cases. According to the Livingston County Health Department, 99.4% of those who tested positive in the recent surge of cases were not vaccinated.

Schieber said lower vaccination rates and lack of diligence in using masks have put the county at risk. He said people should get vaccinated and follow protocol to keep the hospital census low and protect the community.
