There are 24 new cases of coronavirus in Albany County since Wednesday. One of those new cases is a 2-month-old child.  

The total number of cases in the county is now 166.


County Health Commissioner Dr. Elizabeth Whalen says she's been told supplies are currently adequate at Albany Medical Center. She adds that they're actively planning for the surge of patients.

The Albany County Health Department also wants to hear from anyone who was at the Victory Bible Church on Hackett Boulevard in Albany, Sunday March 15 because of what's described as an exposure to coronavirus.

If you were at the church that afternoon, you should contact the health department and quarantine at home until March 29.
