Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) prioritizes the health, safety, and well-being of the communities we serve. Even if you are not concerned about your own health, we ask that you be mindful of your neighbors who may be stressed by the situation and worried about loved ones. Taking action now through social distancing to limit contact with one another may seem like extraordinary measures, but this strategy mitigates the spread of the virus and reduces the burden on our healthcare system as seen in the graph attached.

Before attending public spaces, please ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Have you traveled internationally in the last 14 days?
  2. Have you been in contact with someone who has traveled in the last 14 days?
  3. Do you feel ill or have a fever?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, please stay home and contact your healthcare provider.
