Yesterday, the statewide COVID-19 positivity rate dropped below 1.5% for the first time since October 28.
Cortland County reports just 49 active case, including two people in the hospital.
Over 40-percent of residents are at least halfway through their vaccination series.
Another first-dose Moderna clinic is planned for Wednesday (May 5) for anyone 18 and up at the SUNY Cortland ice arena.
Participants must register ahead of time. Slots are available between 12:30-2:30 pm.
More than 1-in-3 state residents are fully immunized.
Starting today, home-catered events can resume above the current gathering limit of 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors.
Each must be staffed by a licensed caterer and have permission from their respective locality or municipality.
SUNY campuses — including Cortland and TC3 — will adopt the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance easing outdoor mask requirements for vaccinated individuals.
Students, faculty, and staff who are at least two weeks after their final dose of any vaccine regimen can now gather without a mask, except when in certain crowded settings and venues.
This takes effect immediately for the final weeks of the spring semester and any upcoming summer classes on campus.
