    Has anyone asked why these 14 cases have not been reported to the Dept. Of Health COVID-19 tracker? According to them only 1 positive has been confirmed in Otsego county since August 21. Is it just sloppy record keeping or we’re just assuming the diagnosis? Nobody has been reported hospitalize…. proving once again that…. At least for the young, this is nothing to panic about.

    So SUNY did not follow the request of the mayor to warn the returning students. Who would have guessed this would happen?

    Oh,my, gosh!! Is this what it takes to dig into the powers that be brain’s? We have opened too soon!!!!!!!! Not only did our Colleges opening bring cases, but, spread the cases to our town which has been on the right track to avoiding higher numbers. This must be taken seriously by ALL. Wear masks, avoid gatherings. Protect yourself and others.
