Chenango, Delaware, and Otsego County are forgoing contact tracing and instead concentrating on helping people get vaccinated and tested for COVID as needed. Otsego DOH has also stopped reporting active case numbers since they feel that they can no longer accurately report.

Delaware County is about to get a helping hand from New York State after being one of six counties across the state to receive additional assistance from the New York State Department of Health in providing access to COVID vaccines.
