ALBANY – Three more people have died in the Hudson Valley from COVID-19 as the number of new cases of the virus declines dramatically, the State Health Department reported on Tuesday.

There was one death each in Greene, Orange and Ulster counties on Friday, the last date for which statistics were gathered because of the holiday weekend.

New cases of the virus, which had reached close to 2,000 in one day not that long ago, declined to 426 at last count.

Vaccinations and being outdoors in the warm spring weather may be among the factors in reducing new cases.
