“Today’s numbers reflect some positive cases associated with students returning to Oneida County from SUNY Oneonta,” said County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. “As that situation rapidly evolves, I am urging any student, staff or faculty member from SUNY Oneonta who resides in Oneida County to quarantine for 14 days upon returning home. It is paramount that we remain hypervigilant in our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, especially as we head into a holiday weekend in which gatherings are likely to occur. Our county case numbers and hospitalizations have hit all-time lows, and as students return to our colleges, high schools, middle schools and elementary schools, we cannot afford to become complacent. Only by working together to make intelligent, responsible decisions will we keep this community safe and on the path to recovery.”
