The board reports, "Delaware County, as part of the Southern Tier has made great strides in the fight against COVID-19. We have kept the number of active cases flat through the recent reopening. This has been in large part due to the efforts of all Delaware County residents to comply with the social distancing standards and wearing
face coverings while in public. We have worked hard to get to this point and want to ensure we do not slide backwards with a resurgence of the virus that would force the closing of businesses and community operations again."
