In Columbia County, the Health Department is tracking a coronavirus outbreak at a fruit farm in the Hudson area.

The Health Department says 10 migrant workers tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, and contact tracing is now underway.

Health officials say those workers are in quarantine, plus 10 others are also in quarantine because of the close contact they had with the workers who have coronavirus. Nearly 90 workers at the farm have now been tested for coronavirus between Thursday and Friday, and results are pending.

The Health Department says this outbreak is confined to the fruit farm and a home where the workers live together and there is no danger to the public.
