Executive Order: Licensed Childcare Centers

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

County Administrator Jason Molino signed an Executive Order on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 requiring all licensed childcare centers in Tompkins County to close Wednesday, March 18 to April 13, 2020. This decision was made in collaboration with the Tompkins County Health Department, Child Development Council, Human Services Coalition, and other community partners.

This action was taken to promote social distancing of individuals and protect those who are at higher risk in our community. Those at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 include older adults, those who are immune-compromised, or have a chronic medical condition, especially heart or lung disease, and diabetes.

Community members should continue to take these steps to slow the spread of disease: stay home if you are sick, cover your cough and sneeze, and wash your hands well and often. If you develop symptoms of illness including fever, cough, or trouble breathing, call your healthcare provider before you go to the office.

Stay informed. Get updated information on COVID-19 at the Tompkins County Health Department website. Call 211 Tompkins/Cortland for general questions about COVID-19. A hotline is available for New Yorkers to call for information about COVID-19: 1-888-364-3065.
