MALONE — The number of active COVID-19 cases in Franklin County continued its up-and-down pattern Friday, with the number falling to three from four reported Thursday.

But all three cases were new positive test results, County Manager Donna Kissane said in her daily briefing email.

That number remained static through the weekend.

The number of active cases has fluctuated for a week, with six cases at the start of last weekend –– the highest number since June 17. The number fell to five by the end of the weekend, went back up to six on Tuesday, then fell to two on Wednesday. It climbed back to four on Thursday before dropping to three on Friday.

Kissane has repeatedly noted that the numbers are very fluid and can change quickly.

The “3 positive results yesterday and several positive results in the past few weeks have shown mild or no symptoms which leads to the importance of: Socially Distance, Wash Hands, Mask up….keep our community safe!” Kissane wrote in her email.

The number of people listed in quarantine or isolation rose by 20 to 79 Saturday after remaining at 59 for much of the week, having fallen from 60 in Tuesday’s report. That number remained the same Sunday

A total of 11,376 tests have been administered in the county. Of that number, 11,346 have come back negative and 27 of the 30 people who have tested positive have recovered.
