A Note of Caution

As the Finger Lakes region moves into phase 3 of the reopening, I want urge you all to be cautious. Although all the indicators in our area are moving in the right direction, the nation is seeing some surges in states that reopened “early” and “quickly.” The number of cases has topped 2 million. Locally, the percentage of positive tests has been at an all time low since the beginning of the pandemic. Monday 1%, Tuesday 0.3% and Wednesday 1.1%. There has been a slight, possibly not significant, uptick in the rate of postive tests across the state. Hopefully, this is not a new trend. But, as we continue to move through the reopening with more potential contacts with others, please be careful.
