COVID-19 Update

Message from James Seeley, Executive Director Warren County Interim Director Essex County Cornell Cooperative Extension

Dear volunteers, community members, partners and supporters,

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren and Essex Counties has spent the past few weeks learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its devastating impact. Our thoughts are with those who have been directly affected and we aim to support those who are at the forefront of the battle to contain this virus.

CCE prioritizes the health, safety and well-being of the communities we serve. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, and due to an abundance of caution, all on-site and off-site programs, workshops & 4-H activities (including 4-H Club meetings) are cancelled effective immediately until further notice.

In addition, our offices will be closed to the public, including our volunteers, beginning at noon on Wednesday, March 18, again, until further notice.

Please be assured we are committed to supporting our communities through this very difficult time and encourage you to visit our website regularly for up-to-date information including links to relevant websites.
