Superintendents Ask For COVID Exit Strategy


New York Governor Kathy Hochul has extended the Disaster Emergency in the State of New York through March 16, 2022. She reports New York State is #1 among large states for the percentage of 12-17 year old’s who are fully vaccinated.

Superintendents of Cincinnatus, Cortland, Homer, Marathon and McGraw schools are among two dozen from Central New York that sent a letter to the Governor asking about her strategy on ending COVID mitigation. Read that-masks on students.

State Health reports Cortland County had 15 new COVID cases on Tuesday. The county says 6 people were in the hospital as of Monday. The percentage of children 5-11 who are vaccinated in our county is stagnant at 24.6%. There are no clinics scheduled.

More COVID-19 test kits are available for Homer residents. The Village and Town will distribute a thousand of them Thursday 4-6 pm in a drive through at the Town Hall.

The Town of Truxton will distribute its COVID test kits…decided at a town board meeting last night.

Marathon Schools are offering COVID test kits to parents, so the kids can be checked that first Monday back to school after spring break.

As a reminder – The SUNY Cortland COVID state test site remains open weekdays 8:30 to 4 at the Chugger Davis Building. Appointments are encouraged.

If you’re headed to any of the Turning Stone bars, beginning Friday, you will no longer need to show proof of vaccination. For a show, you will.
