Chamber Chief To Students:

Follow Health, Safety Rules

Chamber President Barbara Ann Heegan

ONEONTA – Otsego Chamber of Commerce President Barbara Ann Heegan a few minutes ago issued a plea to SUNY Oneonta students who remain in the community: “Do your part.”

“Use good judgment,” she wrote in an “Open Letter to the Community” provided exclusively to  “Follow local, state and federal health and safety guidelines, including the wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing. Be responsible, respectful and kind to one another. These efforts will bring the business community and college students closer and enable us to remain one of the best college communities.”

The letter was issued after Heegan attended this evening’s Oneonta Control Group meeting, a clearinghouse for COVID-19 issues, where apparently lapses in isolation and quarantining were discussed.

    As a resident who lives in the area , shops there and eats there, I am very discouraged and disappointed by the apparent lack of commitment by the university and specifically the school administration to run the schools opening in a morally, responsible informed fashion . The school has put not only its own county ,but also Delaware and Ulster in jeopardy. It has demonstrated to the students morally bankrupt and irresponsible behavior.
    Shame on the school administration for failing in a primary lesson – teaching students by example.
