With the Governor’s recent designation of Elmira as an Orange Zone* we are reducing our Headquarters hours on Sundays to 2:00 to 4:00 PM. Check this website regularly for any changes to the schedule.
We urge everyone to adhere to the CDC recommendations of social distancing (keeping 6′ from others); wearing a face covering; and washing hands or using hand sanitizer regularly.
Be safe, people. We need each and every one of you.
* An Orange Zone area is implemented independently as a focus area based on the following metrics: Geographic area has 7-day rolling average positivity above 4.5% for 10 days AND Geographic area has 15 or more new daily cases per 100,000 residents on 7-day average.
The purpose of an Orange Buffer Zone is to 1) restrict activity to prevent further spread from Red Zone area; 2) provide a defined geographic area where metrics can be monitored daily to ensure COVID is not spreading beyond the Red Zone.
