EDITORIAL: COVID ALSO GOES BACK TO SCHOOL
If the first few days of school are any indication, Covid-19 infections will continue to haunt our communities and school districts.
We learned a few minutes ago from Fallsburg Central School District Superintendent Ivan Katz that the community is now bracing for additional positive cases, as nearly 100 people came into primary contact with three students who tested positive last week and over the weekend.
Monticello and Liberty also have reported Covid cases since school opened.
Three Sullivan residents have died from Covid in September alone as 10 residents are currently hospitalized with two in the ICU and one of them on a ventilator.
Tomorrow, the County Legislature has a meeting. The agenda MUST include a serious, in-depth discussion about Covid-19 with the leaders using the opportunity to remind people that vaccines are safe and available.
