Two new COVID-19 related deaths in Columbia County


December 10, 2020

DAYTON— On Tuesday of this week, Columbia County Public Health Administrator, Martha Lanman, confirmed two more deaths in men over the age of fifty. This brings the total to four, including a death reported earlier in November and one in July.

There were fifteen positive cases and one test awaiting results on Tuesday morning. Forty-seven people have recovered from COVID-19 since March.

Dayton School District Superintendent Guy Strot posted on the District website over the weekend that Dayton Schools would need to stay in remote learning for the week of Dec. 7 because of an uptick in COVID-19 cases in the county.

“We sincerely hope the cases go down and allow us to return to in-person learning for the following week,” he said.
