#UpstateStrong ... See MoreSee Less

This morning, a caravan of 12 vehicles with 25 nurses from Upstate Medical Center left Upstate Hospital at 8am traveling to New York City and downstate to aid with the efforts involving the Covid-19 Virus. The caravan was escorted from the hospital on Interstate 81 by the Upstate Hospital Police and other law enforcement agencies from Onondaga County to the county line where Cortland County Sheriff’s Deputies picked up the escort through Cortland County. Multiple Law Enforcement, Fire Departments and Emergency Medical Service personnel showed their support at various locations throughout the county, including at the Homer exit (exit 12) where officers from the Homer Police Department and SUNY Cortland University Police along with fire fighters from the Homer, Cortland and Cortlandville Fire Department and medical personnel from TLC Ambulance expressed their gratitude towards these brave nurses as they passed by in the escort. Officers from the Homer Police and Cortland Police assisted with the escort through the county.

We appreciate not only these nurses, who volunteered to leave their families to go help people in need, but all the health professionals for their courage during these times. Thank you!!!!!

The Police Department wants to remind the members of our community that we should all be practicing social distancing and attempting to keep our social circles as small as possible.

While we are seeing 90% of people making the sacrifice to do this. There are still some in our community who are disregarding these guidelines.

We would like to remind the public that New York Executive Order 202.10 bans the non-essential gathering of individuals of any size for any reason. This includes parties, celebrations or other social events.

Under the New York State Executive Law any person who knowingly violates these regulations could be charged with a misdemeanor and face additional civil action.

In addition, the CDC now recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

The COVID-19 outbreak is expected to worsen over the coming weeks.

Please do your part.
