Officials: Schools in Cayuga County can resume in-person learning next week

The leader of the Cayuga County Legislature says schools can reopen this coming week – if they choose.

Legislature Chair Aileen McNabb-Coleman and Public Health Director Kathleen Cuddy had recommended that all schools in Cayuga County utilize remote-only instruction until the third week of January.

“The delay of over two weeks has allowed Cayuga County Health Department to monitor case increases and exposure,” McNabb-Coleman said in a statement. “Based on the latest information provided by Director Cuddy, it is clear we are experiencing a decline in the number of positive COVID-19 cases in our community. Therefore I will not be making a recommendation to postpone in-person learning.”

Next week, schools in Cayuga can resume in-person learning.

She encouraged residents to continue doing their part to practice social distancing and stay healthy to prevent the spread of the virus.
