Orange County followed neighboring Ulster County's lead in producing a map of where positive cases of coronavirus have been documented in the region. On Thursday evening, Ulster announced an interactive map of where COVID-19 cases originated in the county. On Friday evening, Orange County followed suit with a map of originating cases by town in its county with the hope of better informing the public.

"Many residents of Orange County have expressed that a town by town breakdown of cases of COVID-19, similar to what our neighboring counties have provided, would be appreciated," the county said in its Facebook posting. "We want to urge all residents that this virus is widespread throughout the County. We encourage everyone to continue to stay home, practice social distancing if you must be out, and only leave home if absolutely necessary."
