NEWS RELEASE
12/16/21


The Chemung County Health Department is alerting the public that due to the recent increase in the number of COVID-19 positive cases, there will be delays in case investigation and contact tracing.

We are working diligently to contact each positive case and their close contacts. In the meantime we ask you:

  • Stay home if you are experiencing symptoms and reach out to your healthcare provider for testing
  • Follow directions from your healthcare provider if you are awaiting test results
  • Stay home if you test positive and await a phone call from CCHD
  • Isolate away from other family members and do not go into public spaces if you have received a positive test result
  • Answer the phone, even if you do not recognize the caller on the caller ID; it may be a case investigator attempting to reach you

We thank you in advance for your patience.

Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season,

The staff of the Chemung County Health Department
