Health Department: Possible COVID Exposure At Cooperstown Legion

40 Cases So Far This Weekend

COVID Strikes

American Legion

COOPERSTOWN – Just two weeks after Governor Cuomo praised Cooperstown for having the lowest rate of COVID-19 in the state, Heidi Bond, Otsego County Public Health director, has warned of potential exposure at the village’s American Legion.

According to Bond, anyone who was at the Legion between Nov. 25-30 needs to monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19 after at least one case was traced back to the bar.

County-wide, there were 40 cases reported over the past two days, with 26 on Friday and 14 reported today. 16 cases were reported on Thursday, and 13 people are currently been hospitalized, a new record. Earlier this week, the record of hospitalizations was 11.

    I hope I don’t read any more comments claiming that “you can’t control a virus.” All it takes is following the rules—wearing a mask, avoiding gatherings, and for above all, believing—and caring— that your actions affect other people.
