Today Governor Cuomo announced all New York State schools will be closed until April 15th at which point the matter will be reevaluated. It is important now more than ever to stay vigilant and STAY HOME. If you do have to go out, don't touch common surfaces (credit card reader, doors, countertops, shopping carts). Wash you hands for 20 seconds. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow.Twenty-six positive cases is two more than yesterday.
