ONEONTA – With 18 cases of COVID-19 reported today, Otsego County Public Health director Heidi Bond has warned that, with the exception of the college-based outbreaks, today’s total marks the highest number of single-day cases in the community since the pandemic began in March.

Bond said that the health department is working to determine if there is a cluster, but that the cases are spread throughout the county.

Following reports of a staff member at the Oneonta Middle School testing positive, all classes in the district have gone remote until Monday, Nov. 30, according to the district website. Several staff members are close contacts of two additional cases, and are under precautionary quarantine.
