ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. — Erie County restaurants could receive a visit from a county health and safety inspector sometime soon as Covid-19 infection rates continue to decline.

This week, the county reported 45 new Covid cases for the week ending June 19, a 59% decrease from the previous week and the lowest recorded weekly total since the start of the pandemic.
