The CDC reported that Cortland County’s community level is now high as positive cases continue to rise.

No action is required as of this time; however, the CDC encourages the public to utilize mitigation strategies used throughout the pandemic to slow the spread of COVID-19. These strategies include:

  • Getting and staying up to date with the COVID-19 vaccine
  • Test when feeling symptoms or after an exposure
  • Wearing a well-fitted mask regardless of vaccination status, especially in public indoor areas
  • Avoid crowded and poorly ventilated areas
  • Wash hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer when the former is not available

The CDC also reminds the public if you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, follow these steps regardless of vaccination status:

  • Isolate for a minimum of 5 days, with day 0 being the day you exhibited symptoms or were tested
  • Wear a well-fitted mask when out the home during the day 6 through 10
  • Notify anyone you were in close contact within 2 days of the day you exhibited symptoms or were tested
  • If symptoms don’t improve, continue to isolate and speak to your health care provider about available treatment options
  • If your employer of school requires documentation, Affirmation of Isolation Forms can be found at Cortland-Co.org that can be filled out by yourself
