"Individuals currently being monitored" by the Cortland County Health Department fall into the following categories:
"Current Positives" include individuals who tested positive and are currently under a public health order for mandatory isolation in Cortland County.
"Recovered Cases" include the number of positive cases who completed mandatory isolation in Cortland County and have been released.
Cortland County residents who are experiencing coronavirus symptoms need to call their doctor, who will coordinate any necessary testing. If you are instructed by a medical professional to get tested, follow their instructions for a sample collection and then go directly to your home and DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HOME, and isolate yourself from your household to the extent possible until you receive results from your provider. The provider who orders the test will be who contacts you with the result; it could take up to a week or more to get results.
