"There are people that have COVID-19 that are not reflected in lab-confirmed case numbers. They may have not been tested yet, could be awaiting lab results, or are asymptomatic yet contagious.

Officials say they will update case totals every morning.
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro says Dutchess County will provide residents with similar information later this week.
