April 2021: COVID-19 is still here. For farms, storage facilities and packing houses, if you need any face masks or hand sanitizer please let me know as I still have some available. Beth
Vaccinations are become widely available. Please follow the Wayne County Public Health Facebbook page for pop up clinics and the NYS Vaccination Registration Site for an appointment. If you are a farm employee or owner, you can schedule self and employee vaccinations through Finger Lakes Community Health. Let me know if you have any questions, Beth
The best up to date site on COVID-19 research, testing, vaccination, rates is the Cornell Food Institute website. Although the information is geared toward food manufacturing, it provides the best information to protect yourself and your employees. The website has links to all the resources available at the state and national levels. You can access that website here.
If you are a twitter follower, stay abreast of events and be aware of new resources is to follow

You can find other ag recordings on production practices, etc on the Ag Specialist Teams website.
