Belmont, NY – Are you looking for a COVID-19 vaccine or a COVID-19 test? The Allegany County Department
of Health would like to help.

1. Check the Allegany County website at www.alleganyco.com if you have access to the internet. On the main
page, you will find a blue box titled Quick Links and COVID-19 Information including COVID-19 vaccination
clinic dates and links to register for an appointment.

2. If you are looking for a COVID-19 vaccine, go to the county website using the information above,
www.vaccinefinder.org, or www.vaccinehound.org. These websites will help you find a vaccination by location,
type of vaccine, or within the time frame you need.

  • No access to the internet – call one of our local pharmacies to see if they have vaccine (Walgreens, Fishers
    Pharmacy in Wellsville, Alfred Pharmacy in Alfred, Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, Wegmans, etc.)

3. If you are looking for a COVID-19 test, go to https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/find-test-site-near-you and
search by your zip code to find a testing site near you. You should wait 3-5 days before being tested for COVID-
19 after you are in contact with someone who is COVID-19 positive and do not have any symptoms. There may
be an out of pocket cost; please be sure to ask these questions. Always call first, DO NOT just show up.

  • If you do not have access to the internet, call New York State Department of Health at -1-888-364-3065
    to find a COVID-19 testing site near you.
  • Call your health care provider, local pharmacy, or visit the site above to find a COVID-19 test site near
    you. Remember to discuss insurance coverage or out of pocket cost for the test, especially if you do not
    have symptoms. Ask about the type of COVID-19 test you need for travel, school, worksite, etc. to make
    sure you get the test you need (Antigen, Molecular, PCR)
  • Purchase an over-the-counter COVID-19 test kit at a local pharmacy or retail store. Make sure it has
    FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) printed on the packaging. Prices range from $24 for 2 kits to
    $125 or more depending on the type of kit.

    • If you test positive on a home test kit, make sure to notify the Allegany County Department of
      Health and your health care provider.

If you need additional assistance, please contact the Allegany County Department of Health by email at
healthinfo@alleganyco.com or by calling 585-268-9250. We are experiencing a large number of COVID-19 calls each day.

Increase in Number of Positive COVID-19 Cases in Allegany County

09 02 21 ACDOH Increase In Number Of COVID Positives In Allegany County

There has been a recent increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases in Allegany County. Allegany
County has gone from a substantial (orange) COVID community transmission rate to a high (red) transmission
rate. From Wednesday, August 25, 2021, to Tuesday, August 31, 2021, Allegany County reported 58 positive
COVID cases or a rate of 125.84 positive cases per 100,000 population. Allegany County Department of Health
(ACDOH) Public Health Director Tyler Shaw reports, “The positivity rate not only effects the individual and
possibly their families but also has second and third order effects within our communities for schools, businesses,
hospitals, and nursing homes.”

Many factors are possible causes to the increase in positive cases including larger gatherings throughout the
summer, travel outside of our state and area, COVID variants, not enough population vaccinated for COVID-19,
reopening of events and festivals, as well as more people returning to this County for vacations, to visit family,
work and school, and overall a more relaxed attitude about COVID-19.

Allegany County has only 40.9 percent of our total eligible population fully vaccinated according to the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of August 31, 2021. Increasing the number of County residents who
are vaccinated will help to lower the COVID community transmission rate and help to combat future variants.
For individuals that are vaccinated, there is a decreased risk of being hospitalized. Getting vaccinated protects
others in your household and your community. Vaccinations are still available; go to www.vaccinefinder.org,
www.vaccinehound.org, or call the Allegany County Department of Health at 585-268-9250 for help finding a
vaccine.

According to James Helms, CEO at UR Jones Memorial Hospital, hospitalizations for COVID-19 at Jones have
definitely been increasing. “At this point, 26 percent of the current inpatients admitted to our hospital are COVID
positive and all but one was unvaccinated,” he said. “We are going to double the COVID positive admissions
today given the patients we have seen in our emergency room, adding potentially four more. Please help our staff
be available to help you by getting vaccinated.”

For the nursing staff, providing the care that COVID-19 patients require takes more time than other patients. “Not
just because of the level of care, but it also takes time to don and doff the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
before going into the room to provide that care.”

With the upcoming Labor Day weekend, the Allegany County Department of Health highly recommends that residents of the County take precautions. When traveling or attending parties or other large social gatherings, remember to wash your hands and use hand sanitizer in addition to wearing a mask, especially when social distancing cannot be maintained. When attending events or gatherings this weekend, choose those that are outside and limit time spent with those that are unvaccinated.

These precautions, in combination with getting vaccinated, are the best way to provide layered protection from COVID-19. You can call the Allegany County Department of Health at 585-268-9250 to register for an upcoming vaccination clinic.

Remember, if you are feeling ill or having any symptoms, a test may be necessary in order to collect close contact information. Please reach out to your primary care provider, check for testing sites by visiting this site: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/find-test-site-near-you, or contact the Allegany County Department of Health if you do not have a primary care provider.

FDA Authorizes Additional Vaccine Dose for Certain Immune Compromised Individuals

08 18 21 ACDOH Additional Dose Of COVID Vaccine

The FDA has recently authorized an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine for certain immune compromised
individuals. This amendment applies only to Moderna and Pfizer vaccine, not Johnson & Johnson. The additional
dose should be administered at least 28 days after the completion of the primary two dose series. People with
immunocompromised conditions include:

  • Active or recent treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
  • Receipt of solid-organ or recent hematopoietic stem cell transplants
  • Severe primary immunodeficiency including asplenia and renal disease
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids, alkylating agents, antimetabolites, tumor-necrosis (TNF)
    blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory

The FDA and CDC authorized the additional third dose because immunocompromised people are more likely to
have breakthrough cases, accounting for 44 percent of hospitalized breakthrough cases in the US. Lower vaccine
effectiveness was another reason with 59-72 percent effectiveness among immunocompromised people vs. 90-94
percent among non-immune compromised people after the second dose.

Emerging data suggests that an additional dose will enhance overall vaccine effectiveness in immune
compromised individuals. This is different from a booster dose, which is needed when the initial vaccine series
is effective, but immunity may wane over time. The FDA and CDC have not yet established a timeline for a
COVID-19 booster shot and information on that will be coming soon.

For more information regarding whether or not you are immunocompromised, please speak with your Primary
Care Physician or search online for “general best practices for vaccination of people with altered
immunocompetence.” The Allegany County Department of Health will release more information when we have
vaccination clinics available for the additional third dose for immunocompromised individuals.

Substantial Transmission Rates in Allegany County

08 13 21 ACDOH Substantial Transmission Rates

Allegany County has gone from a moderate rate of COVID transmission to a substantial rate. Substantial rate of
COVID transmission means there is 50 to 100 cases per 100,000, or a positivity rate between 8 percent and 10
percent. Substantial Transmission of COVID rates in Allegany County for Thursday, August 5, 2021, to
Wednesday, August 11, 2021, were 26 positive cases of COVID or a rate of 56.41 positive cases per 100,000
population.

The majority of positive cases in Allegany County have been household transmissions. This means one or more
people in the household are positive and pass COVID on to others in the household. Allegany County residents
living in a household with a positive case should, if possible, practice social distancing, wear a mask, use a
different bathroom, and clean and sanitize after the person in isolation.

The CDC recommendations for individuals in communities with substantial transmission rates are to follow
healthy hygiene practices, stay at home when sick, practice physical distancing to lower the risk of disease spread,
and wear a mask (especially when physical distancing cannot be maintained).

Allegany County School Districts will be recommended to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) and New York State Education Department (NYSED) guidelines this fall.

Please share the information with family and friends. For COVID-19 questions, please call the Allegany County
Department of Health at 585-268-9250.

Vaccination Rates in Allegany County

07 29 21 ACDOH Vaccination Rates

As of July 27, 2021 Allegany County has a vaccination rate of 38.3%. The overall vaccination rate in the United States is 56.9%, and for New York State, it is 62.4%. Lower vaccination rates in a community mean that Covid-19 can spread more easily, and those communities are more vulnerable to variants and surges in COVID-19 cases, especially with the more contagious Delta Variant.

Becoming fully vaccinated has been shown to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death; it also helps reduce the spread of the virus in communities. Unvaccinated individuals should consider getting vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. This is urgent because the highest spread of cases and severe symptoms is happening in places with low vaccination rates.

According to the CDC, if you are vaccinated, your risk of infection is about 3.5 times lower, your risk of getting ill from COVID-19 is over 8 times lower, and your risk of hospitalization or death is 25 times lower.

It’s important to remember that even though there have been recent increases in cases, those cases are experiencing less severe symptoms and across the country deaths are down 70% from last summer. This is further proof that becoming fully vaccinated is the best thing you can do to protect yourself, your community, and those around you.

The vaccination rates throughout Allegany County range from 15.7% to 99% based on Zip Codes. More information can be found online at https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/vaccination-rates-zip-code.

Please continue to wash your hands and wear a mask if you are unvaccinated to keep you and your family healthy. Please call me at 585-268-9437 to register for a vaccine, check our website for upcoming clinics, or call your local pharmacy or Primary Physician for information on getting the vaccine.

National Immunization Awareness Month-Let’s Get Back on Track

07 21 21 ACODH National Immunization Month 2021 Article

During COVID-19 many of us fell behind on doctor visits, physicals, health screenings, and immunizations.  Let us help you get back on track!

August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). During NIAM, the Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) encourages you to talk to your healthcare professional to ensure you, your child, and your family are up to date on recommended vaccines.  Consider putting vaccinations at the top of your back to school checklist.

Parents have the power to protect their children from 14 serious and sometimes deadly diseases, including measles, before they turn 2 years old. When children are not vaccinated, they are at increased risk and can spread diseases to others in their family and community. This includes babies who are too young to be fully vaccinated and people with weakened immune systems due to cancer and other health conditions.

Some vaccine-preventable diseases, like chickenpox and pertussis (whooping cough), remain common in the United States. Since 2010, the CDC saw between 10,000 and 50,000 cases of whooping cough each year in the United States. The deaths related to whooping cough each year occur in young babies. The most common diseases are not as prevalent in this country because of vaccinations. The 2019 measles outbreak is a key reminder of how quickly diseases can spread when children aren’t vaccinated.  Some infections that are prevented by preteen vaccines, like HPV which can lead to serious health problems later in life. Over 34,000 men and women in the United States are diagnosed with cancers caused by HPV each year.

For school age children, parents should remember compliance with New York State immunization requirements is mandatory for school enrollment. School age children need boosters for four vaccines between the ages of 4 to 6 (DTaP-diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis; chickenpox, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and polio. Older children, like preteens and teens, need Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), meningococcal conjugate, and HPV (human papillomavirus) is recommended when they are age 11 to 12.  A yearly flu vaccine is recommended for all children 6 months and older. Please frequent the Allegany County Department of Health website page for a comprehensive list of vaccination clinics.

Child off to college or their chosen career?  Parents of young adults should send them off to the future fully protected by making sure they are up to date on all vaccines recommended for them.  Even healthy young adults need protection from diseases like the flu, whooping cough, meningitis, and HPV.

Remember, adults need vaccines too.  This is the perfect opportunity to make sure adults are protected against diseases like flu, whooping cough, tetanus, shingles, and pneumonia. The specific vaccines adults need are determined by factors such as age, lifestyle, pre-existing health conditions, locations of travel, and previous vaccines.  All adults should talk to their healthcare providers about which vaccines are right for them.

No one wants to pass on a serious illness to someone they care about, so take charge of your health and help protect those around you by asking about vaccines at your next doctor’s visit. National Immunization Awareness Month provides an opportunity to remind Allegany County residents about the importance of vaccinations and for all ages to “catch-up” on their vaccinations.

Get Vaccinated To Protect Yourself from COVID-19  

07 14 21 ACDOH Protection From COVID

The Allegany County Department of Health has recently seen an increase of three COVID-19 cases this week. This is an expected uptick following the July 4 gatherings after having only two cases in the previous two weeks. Further information will be released next week on Monday.

With the new cases, it is a good time to remind everyone that COVID-19 is still a risk.  Remember, COVID-19 spreads person to person with close contact primarily through respiratory droplets.  Getting yourself and encouraging your family members to get vaccinated will help prevent catching and possibly spreading the virus. No vaccine is 100 percent effective, but the COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to decrease the rate of hospitalizations and severe symptoms if you are vaccinated compared to those who are unvaccinated.

Another concern are variants of COVID-19. The most contagious right now is the Delta variant. The WHO estimates the Delta variant is 55 percent more transmissible than the Alpha variant, which was itself around 50 percent more transmissible than the original virus that causes COVID-19. The Allegany County Department of Health has not identified any cases of the Delta variant to date. However, the Delta variant is likely circulating within our community, and all of the vaccine research so far has shown some promise for protection against the variants.

Please continue to wash your hands and wear a mask if you are unvaccinated to keep you and your family healthy.

The best way to prevent COVID-19 is by getting vaccinated. Please call 585-268-9250, option 4, to register. You can also find the link on the Allegany County Department of Health Facebook Page or alleganyco.com website under County Government Notices / Press Releases to register for a time that works for you.

Help Children Return Safely to School – Get Caught Up on Recommended Vaccines

06 22 21 ACDOH Childhood Call To Action

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many children have fallen behind on receiving recommended vaccines. The CDC data shows an overall drop of 14 percent in vaccinations with the measles vaccination rates declining about 20 percent.  We all want our kids to be safe and protected from preventable diseases. With the school year coming to an end, it is important to start to think about next school year and the required immunizations that your child may need in order to attend daycare and PreK-12. The best way to make sure your child is up to date with their vaccinations is to check with your Healthcare Provider, Pediatrician, or the Allegany County Department of Health.  Please see the attached routine immunization schedule for the Allegany County Department of Health.

In addition to regular vaccinations, parents and legal guardians of any New Yorker, ages 12-17, can enter their student who has received at least their first Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine dose, for a chance to win a four-year, full-ride scholarship (including tuition, room-and-board, and expenses) to any NYS public college or university (SUNY or CUNY). Currently, the only vaccine approved under an Emergency Use Authorization for individuals age 12-17 is Pfizer.  The Allegany County Department of Health will be hosting a Pfizer Vaccination Clinic on Friday July 9, 2021, at the County Office Building in Belmont from 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Routine immunization schedule for Allegany County Department of Health:

All clinic times offering the back to school vaccines are 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and are located in Belmont at the County Office Building.

Be A Part of New York’s Safe Reopening with Excelsior Pass

06 21 21 ACDOH COVID Excelsior Pass

Excelsior Pass is a free, fast, and secure way to present digital proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results. The pass will support a safe reopening of New York so businesses and venues can validate your pass to ensure you meet vaccination or testing requirements before entry. New York State residents who received their vaccine or a negative test in NYS can go to epass.ny.gov to get their pass for free, or download the Excelsior Pass Wallet app to their phone and follow the instructions to retrieve.

Participation is voluntary, your privacy is protected, and there is no health information shared. Think of it as a mobile airline boarding pass, but for your vaccine. You don’t need a smart phone; Excelsior Pass will work with any type of phone or you can print it out. The pass is good for 365 days, starting the 15th day after your final dose. If you have your pass from receiving a negative test result, it is good for three days from a PCR and 6 hours from an Antigen test. If your test has expired, you need to get a new test; and if your expiration date on your vaccination has expired, then redo your Excelsior Pass for the most up to date expiration date.

Currently the Excelsior Pass is only available to individuals who were vaccinated or had a negative test in the State of New York. If you are a New York State resident but were vaccinated outside of New York, then you can contact your NYS healthcare provider directly to input your vaccine information into the secure New York databases. You will then be able to retrieve your Excelsior Pass from epass.ny.gov at any time.

For more information about the Excelsior Pass and how it works you can go online to:  https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/excelsior-pass

The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH), CA BOCES, and Allegany County Schools are working together to offer Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to students age 12 and up in each of the twelve Allegany County public school districts including the Belmont BOCES site.  The first dose will be offered on either Wednesday, May 26, or Thursday, May 27.  A plan is in the works to vaccinate students at schools located near each other on the same day using several teams of ACDOH staff.

Do you have a student age 12 and up?  Check their back pack and take home folder for more information.  Here is what you are looking for:

  • Guidance for COVID-19 Vaccine Access for Persons age 12 to 17
  • Safety and Effectiveness Q & A
  • Vaccine Consent Form
  • Pfizer Fact Sheet

These forms are also available to print from the Allegany County website at : https://www.alleganyco.com/coronavirus/covid-19-vaccine-information/student-vaccination-forms/

Parents don’t miss your opportunity to have your student(s) age 12 and up vaccinated for COVID-19 at their school.  Participating schools will be sending home a packet including a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine fact sheet, a registration form, and a vaccine consent form.

Watch for the packets at the end of this week.  Turnaround time is quick; if you are interested, get the forms completed and back to school on Monday, May 24.  Schools will be giving the ACDOH a count on Tuesday.  Make sure you have your paperwork turned in to be counted.  Schools that do not have enough interest may not be added to the schedule on these two days.

Remember if your student(s) has dose one of Pfizer on May 26 or May 27, they will need the second dose in 21 days.  ACDOH will arrange with the schools to return for the second dose on Wednesday, June 16, or Thursday, June 17.

Allegany County Seeing an Increase in COVID-19 Positive Cases

05 17 21 ACDOH Allegany County COVID 19 Positive Cases

The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) has seen a small increase in COVID-19 positive cases: from May 10  through May 17 there was a total of 62 cases; from May 2 to May 9 a total of 49 cases; and as previously reported 50 cases during the 3-day period from April 30 to May 2.

We are also seeing an increase in positive cases in a younger population. Allegany County statistics show the 20-29 age group has the highest number of COVID-19 positive cases (669 total cases as of May 9); the second group is age 50-59 (479) and the third group is age 10-19 (449).  The overall increase in positive COVID-19 cases has been attributed to contact with a positive case in the household, family gatherings, and contact to a positive case at school including sports teams. The largest increases in cases continue to be within the largest populated areas of the county.

ACDOH has completed one community COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Friendship at the American Legion and vaccinated 23 individuals.  Thank you to the Friendship American Legion for hosting the clinic. The next community clinics will be in Bolivar Fire Hall on May 19 and Belfast Town/Fire Hall on May 26.

We are asking county residents to help us stop the spread of COVID-19:

  • Remain diligent and continue to wear a mask, social distance, wash hands often and get a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Get everyone, who is age 12 and over, in your household vaccinated.
  • Encourage your extended family, co-workers, friends, neighbors and those in your community to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Remember to get your second dose if you have Moderna or Pfizer vaccine.
  • Remember you need 14 days after your last COVID-19 vaccination to have full vaccine coverage.

If you have general COVID-19 questions or need a COVID-19 vaccination, call the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 and press #4.

COVID-19 Positive Cases on the Rise

05 04 21 ACDOH COVID 19 Positive Cases Increasing

The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) is seeing a small increase of COVID-19 positive cases. April 30 saw 18 new positive cases, May 1 had 15 new positive cases, and May 2 had 17 new positive cases for a total of 50 new positive COVID-19 cases in a 3-day period. We are also seeing an increase in positive cases in a younger population including cases severe enough to be hospitalized.

As COVID-19 moves into the second year we must remain diligent and continue to wear a mask, social distance, wash hands often, and get a COVID-19 vaccine. This increase of positive COVID-19 cases has been attributed to spread through family members and family gatherings.  As the weather is getting warmer, summer events are being scheduled, people are traveling again, and businesses are opening up. We are asking County residents to help us stop the spread of COVID-19.  ACDOH is asking County residents to continue having small events with those in your household. Here are some activities you might want to consider to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Allegany County:

  • Get everyone, who is age 16 and over, in your household vaccinated.
  • Encourage your extended family, co-workers, friends, neighbors, and those in your community to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you have Moderna or Pfizer.
  • Remember you need 14 days after your last COVID-19 vaccination to have full vaccine coverage.
  • Attend outdoor events remembering to wear your mask and keep a social distance, especially if unvaccinated.

ACDOH Provides an Update on COVID-19 Quarantine Procedures

05 03 21 ACDOH Health Advisory Updates For Quarantine

The New York State Department of Health has issued update to the health advisory for quarantine. This guidance update aligns with the New York State Travel Advisory that went into effect on April 10, 2021, and aligns with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements and recommendations for domestic and international travel released April 2, 2021.

Quarantine Requirements:

Fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID-19 who are asymptomatic (having no symptoms of COVID-19) do not need to quarantine after exposure to COVID-19.

Fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID-19 who have COVID-19 symptoms must isolate themselves, talk to their healthcare provider about concerns, and be tested for COVID-19.

Recently recovered individuals exposed to COVID-19 who are asymptomatic (having no symptoms of COVID-19), who have been recently diagnosed with laboratory confirmed COVID-19, and have since recovered, are not required to retest and quarantine provided the new exposure is within 3 months after the date of symptom onset from the initial COVID-19 infection or date of first positive diagnostic test if asymptomatic during illness.

Individuals who are neither fully vaccinated nor recently recovered and are exposed to COVID-19:

  • Individuals who have been exposed to someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19, who are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from COVID-19 in the previous 3 months, are required to quarantine for 10 days after exposure.
  • Testing is not required to end quarantine if no symptoms have been reported during the quarantine period. However, a test should be sought immediately if any symptoms develop during the 14 days after exposure.

The Allegany County Department of Health will continue to identify individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19. Contract tracing interviews now include questions about vaccination status and previous COVID infection. Contact tracers may validate reports of vaccination status in NYSIIS or CIR, the statewide immunization registry, during the interview. Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to quarantine after exposure.

This guidance applies only to asymptomatic individuals who have been exposed to COVID-19 and who have not tested positive as a result of a recent exposure. Consistent with ongoing NYSDOH requirements, individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate.

COVID-19 travel advisory from the New York State Department of Health is available at https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory

Additional information is available on the New York State Department of Health website at https://www.health.ny.gov/

Update on Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine

04 26 21 ACDOH 2nd Update J & J COVID Vaccine

On April 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine out of an abundance of caution, which New York State followed.

On April 23, following a thorough safety review, the CDC and FDA lifted the recommended pause on the J&J vaccine and said that the United States can resume use of the vaccine for adults. New York State’s independent Clinical Advisory Task Force additionally reviewed the data and also recommended that the use of the J&J vaccine can resume. Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker issued a statement saying, “The data has shown the vaccine’s known benefits far outweigh the potential and extremely rare risks.” We will continue to communicate regular updates, and we urge anyone with questions about the COVID-19 vaccines to speak with their healthcare provider.

The Allegany County Department of Health will continue to provide updates as they are made available from New York State, the CDC, or the FDA.

Update on Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine

04 14 21 ACDOH Update On J&J Vaccine

The New York State Department of Health has released the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued statements for individuals receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine:

  • For people who got the J & J COVID-19 vaccine more than a month ago, the risk to them is very low at this time.
  • For people who recently got the J & J COVID-19 vaccine-within the last few weeks-they should be aware of any symptoms.
    • If you have received the J & J COVID-19 vaccine and develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath, you should contact your healthcare provider and seek medical treatment.
  • Importantly, there are three vaccines available. We are not seeing these events with the other two vaccines (Moderna and Pfizer).
  • People who have vaccine appointments with the other two vaccines should continue with their appointment. The New York State Department of Health’s partners will work with those scheduled to receive the J & J vaccine in the days ahead to reschedule.

The Allegany County Department of Health will continue to provide updates as they are made available from New York State, the CDC, or the FDA.

Statement From New York State Health Commissioner Regarding Johnson & Johnson Vaccine

04 13 21 ACDOH NYS Regarding J J Vaccine

Today, April 13, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a statement recommending a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine out of an abundance of caution.  New York State will follow the CDC and FDA recommendation and pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine statewide immediately today while these health and safety agencies evaluate next steps.  All appointments for the Johnson & Johnson vaccines today at New York State mass vaccination sites will be honored with the Pfizer vaccine.

Dr. Howard Zucker reported, “As the CDC and FDA have said, any adverse events related to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine ‘appear to be extremely rare’ and, ‘People who have received the J & J vaccine who develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.’

Dr. Zucker is in constant contact with the federal government, and updates will be made available to New Yorkers as more information becomes available.

COVID-19 Fully Vaccinated Individuals Exempt From Quarantine

02 23 21 ACDOH Fully Vaccinated Individuals And Quarantine

The Allegany County Department of Health will be adopting the quarantine recommendations for COVID-19 fully vaccinated persons issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  Residents may be considered fully vaccinated two weeks (14 days) after receiving their second dose of either of the approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna).  An individual who is considered fully vaccinated may be exempt from quarantine for up to 90 days.

On February 11, 2021, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that New York State will be adopting the CDC recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals.  Although the official written State guidance has not yet been released, Local Health Departments have been told that they may move forward with adopting these recommendations.

Moving forward, fully vaccinated individuals (individuals who are 2 weeks post second dose) who are exhibiting no symptoms may be exempt from both travel quarantine and quarantine due to close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

However, there are some exceptions to the new quarantine guidelines.  According to the CDC, fully vaccinated hospitalized persons and fully vaccinated residents of healthcare settings who are exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 case should not be exempted from quarantine.  This exception is due to the unknown vaccine effectiveness in these specific populations, the higher risk of severe disease and death, and challenges with social/physical distancing in healthcare settings.

“Allegany County residents have done an excellent job at helping to slow the spread of COVID-19, and this is just one small step forward toward normalcy.  We are not done yet, these highly effective vaccines allow us to reduce the number of residents in quarantine which in turn may also relieve some financial burdens for families as well as staffing issues for employers,” said Tyler Shaw, Public Health Director.

Until this recent change, individuals who were identified as direct/close contacts to a COVID-19 positive case were required to quarantine for a minimum 10 days.  Also, individuals who may have traveled outside of New York State or returning to New York State from a non-contiguous State were also required to quarantine for a minimum of 10 days unless they tested out per the New York State travel advisory guidelines.

This is just a starting point and the 90-day exemption may be extended past the 90-day mark as research and information becomes more readily available about vaccine effectiveness and additional recommendations are made by the New York State Department of Health and the CDC.  With all of that being said, everyone, to include fully vaccinated individuals, MUST continue to comply with the NY Forward re-opening guidelines for businesses and gatherings to include wearing a mask, washing your hands frequently, and practicing social distancing.

COVID-19 UK Variant Case Found in Allegany County

02 05 21 ACDOH UK Variant Case

Allegany County has its first case of the United Kingdom (UK) variant of COVID-19. The variant was found in a student who traveled here from another part of New York State. The student who tested positive was already isolated and the contact tracing was completed even prior to finding out from the random sampling conducted through the Wadsworth Center.

The New York State Department of Health says public health experts are working to better understand the potential impacts of this variant including how the variant spreads and how it affects people who are infected with it. Some of the other counties in New York State with a case of the UK variant of COVID-19 include Essex, Long Island, Niagara, Warren, Westchester, Onondaga, Saratoga, Tompkins, and New York City.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the UK variant spreads more easily and quickly than other variants, but right now there is no evidence that it causes more severe illness or increased risk of death.

WNY County Health Departments Issue Joint Statement Regarding Travel and Quarantine During School Breaks

02 04 21 ACDOH Joint Statement From County Health Departments Regarding Travel And Quarantine

ALLEGANY COUNTY, NY – The leaders of the five Western New York (WNY) county health departments (Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara) are providing the following joint statement related to the upcoming school breaks and the New York State (NYS) Travel Advisory.

Our departments share a common goal to keep the students, families, and staff associated with schools healthy and safe and to keep schools open. Reducing the risk of travel-based cases, and reducing the spread of variant COVID-19 strains to and within WNY communities is one part of our collective COVID-19 response.

With vacation breaks scheduled in February and April for many schools, our departments are strongly discouraging travel to areas of the country with high rates of COVID-19 transmission, known cases of variant COVID-19 strains, or areas that do not have COVID-19 safety measures in place. All NYS Travel Advisory guidance applies because vaccinated individuals may still be able to infect others following an exposure to the virus.

If school staff or families choose to travel, NYS Travel Advisory guidance will apply for travelers who are in a non-contiguous state for more than 24 hours:

  • Quarantine Option: Travelers must quarantine for 10 days following arrival in NYS. OR
  • Quarantine PLUS Test Option:
    • Travelers must obtain a diagnostic COVID-19 test within three days of departure, prior to arrival in NYS.
    • And, the traveler must, upon arrival in NYS, quarantine for three days.
    • And, on day 4 of their quarantine, the traveler must obtain another COVID-19 diagnostic test. If both test results are negative, the traveler may exit quarantine early upon receipt of the second negative diagnostic test.

County health departments have fielded questions from school leaders about whether school staff who have received one or both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine need to quarantine after out-of-state travel. To date, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has not issued any guidance that removes a quarantine requirement for people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19. All Travel Advisory guidance applies.

Vacation breaks in other parts of the country also mean that travelers could arrive for visits into WNY. For those arriving for visits, our departments advise visitors to heed the NYS Travel Advisory and take other public health measures like wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, staying home when sick and avoiding gatherings.

For staff and families who choose to travel to areas with high levels of COVID-19 transmission, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has information for travelers to consider before, during, and after travel. Households where someone is at increased risk for getting very sick from COVID-19, including adults over 65 and individuals with certain chronic medical conditions, should seriously consider postponing travel. Individuals who do not show COVID-19 symptoms may still be infected and able to spread COVID-19 to others. That includes children, who may have no symptoms or very mild symptoms.

As a reminder, New York State Department of Health guidance from November 2020 noted that although teachers, school staff, and child care workers are considered essential, the NYS Travel Advisory exemption for essential workers does not apply to teachers, school employees, or child care workers, due to the sensitivity of these congregate settings.

Western New York Health Departments Issue Joint Statement on Wrestling

WNY County Health Department Issue Joint Statement on Wrestling

WESTERN NEW YORK – The leaders of the five county health departments (Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara) in Western New York (WNY) are providing the following joint statement related to wrestling programs. This announcement follows updates to the NY Forward Interim Guidance for Sports and Recreation on January 22, 2021.

Revisions to the guidance relaxed certain restrictions on higher-risk sports, including wrestling. Wrestling involves participants sparring in very close physical proximity for extended periods of time, which significantly increases the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Similarly, masks, which are a method of COVID-19 risk reduction, are not recommended to be worn during wrestling because of a choking hazard.

Further, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report1 (MMWR) published January 26, 2021, summarized a large COVID outbreak associated with a wrestling tournament in December 2020. Through a case investigation that spanned three counties and included diagnostic testing of contacts, the report noted hundreds of contacts, significant losses of in-person learning days, suspension of all winter indoor and outdoor high school athletics in one county, and one death resulting from multiple exposures during this wrestling tournament.

The circumstances outlined in that MMWR brief could easily be replicated at any WNY wrestling tournament. In the interests of limiting risk and protecting the health of athletes, their classmates, households, and coaching and teaching staff within schools, WNY health department leaders strongly recommend that interscholastic, intramural, and amateur wrestling teams and leagues cancel or postpone their winter 2021 seasons to a later date, when community transmission of COVID-19 is significantly lower. Coaching staff and parents should consider promoting individual training and distanced group exercises.

Notice from ACDOH Related to Resuming High-Risk Youth Activities

Notice from ACDOH Related to Resuming High-Risk Youth Activities

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a heightened responsibility on youth sports organizations, coaches, families, and athletes to reduce transmission and to foster a safer environment for children to participate in youth sports. On Friday, January 22, 2021, Governor Cuomo announced he would allow higher-risk sports to commence in New York schools effective February 1, 2021, subject to local health department approval. Individual schools, student athletes, and their parents/guardians must carefully consider a variety of factors before making an individual decision to participate.

Schools must follow the New York State Department of Health’s INTERIM GUIDANCE FOR SPORTS AND RECREATION DURING THE COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY and applicable Executive Orders for all school sports and recreation activities. Per current State guidance, schools must limit capacity of indoor facilities to no more than 50 percent occupancy and a maximum of two spectators per player. In addition, schools must implement protocols to ensure social distancing, use of face coverings, and enhanced disinfection. For moderate and higher-risk sports, if an athlete, coach or referee receives a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, all in-person team or group activities (e.g. practices, scrimmages, games, meetings) may result in a 10-day suspension to mitigate the spread of infection, especially if an outbreak or cluster is imminent.  Situations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Participating in higher-risk sports presents significant risks. The level of risk presented by a return to sports is driven by the sport and setting, local disease activity, and individual circumstances including underlying health conditions that may place the athlete or household contacts at increased risk of severe disease should they contract COVID-19.

Additional areas of concern that require consideration include:

  • The potential spread of COVID-19 variants that may be present in the community.
  • The risk of exposure from overnight travel situations.
  • The potential quarantine required of the entire team if a teammate tests positive for COVID-19.
  • The school’s ability to monitor and enforce compliance with the New York State’s sports and recreation guidance.
  • The requirement of timely reporting of COVID-19 exposures that occur in sports settings to local health authorities.

Tips for players, spectators, and schools in preparing to return to high-risk youth sports:

  • Families should review school and league COVID-19 policies as well as CDC recommendations for youth sports.
  • Always follow safety protocols.
  • Prioritize noncontact activity, including drills that maintain physical or social distancing.
  • If physical distancing can’t be maintained, use cloth face coverings or masks as directed in State guidance.
  • Reinforce appropriate hygiene and respiratory etiquette through signage, education, and use of handwashing stations or hand sanitizer.
  • Consider the use of practice pods in small sizes to provide separation among small groups of athletes.
  • Minimize travel outside of contiguous counties or outside of New York State, as per State guidance.

-If you must travel, keep assigned bus seats and a seating chart.

-Please keep records of room assignments if overnight stays are necessary.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched equipment and surfaces on the field, court, or play surface often.
  • Reduce use of shared equipment and communal spaces, such as locker rooms.
  • Avoid poorly ventilated areas and small spaces. Use fans or open doors and windows when possible.
  • Do not allow athletes to share food and drink.
  • Participants should always use their own water bottles; avoid the use of drinking fountains.

Contact sports bring people close together and increase the risk of transmission. If schools, athletes, and their parents/guardians choose to return to high-risk sports, they must follow guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Athletes should restrict their activity outside of sports to minimize risk and reduce community spread. We must work together during these stressful times to ensure that our youth has the opportunity to participate in athletics safely.

All responsible parties must develop safety plans and affirm at the end of the state guidance document that they are able to meet the required State guidance.

Notice from ACDOH Regarding Moderate and Higher-Risk Sports and Recreation

Notice from ACDOH Regarding Moderate and Higher-Risk Sports and Recreation

The Allegany County Department of Health would like schools, businesses, coaching staff, athletes, parents of student-athletes, and youth and adult amateur sports leagues in Allegany County to know the following information about moderate and higher-risk sports and recreation.  After extended internal consultation and discussion among Western New York County Health Officials, it has been determined that higher-risk and moderate risk sports may proceed in WNY according to, and in compliance with, New York State guidelines.

New York State Interim Guidelines for Sports and Recreation were announced by Governor Cuomo late Friday, January 22. These revisions allow local health departments to authorize high risk sports, such as wrestling, ice hockey, basketball, contact lacrosse, and volleyball, to proceed with individual and group training, competitions, and tournaments, effective February 1, 2021. Updates were also made to low- and moderate-risk sports and recreation activities.

All responsible parties (schools, businesses, leagues, organizations) must follow the New York State Department of Health’s INTERIM GUIDANCE FOR SPORTS AND RECREATION DURING THE COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY and applicable Executive Orders for the conduct of their sports and recreation activities. Per current State guidance, indoor facilities must limit their capacity to no more than 50 percent occupancy and a maximum of two spectators per player. In addition, protocols to ensure social distancing, use of face coverings, and enhanced disinfection protocols must be implemented. For moderate and higher risk sports, if an athlete, coach or referee receives a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, all in-person team or group activities (e.g. practices, scrimmages, games, meetings) may result in a 10-day suspension to mitigate the spread of infection. Situations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Participating in higher-risk sports presents significant risks. The level of risk presented by a return to sports is driven by the sport and setting, local disease activity, and individual circumstances including underlying health conditions that may place the athlete or household contacts at increased risk of severe disease should they contract COVID-19. Individual schools and businesses, student and adult athletes, and parents/guardians must carefully consider a variety of factors before making an individual decision to participate.

To allow continuation of higher risk sports and recreational activities, the Allegany County Department of Health will continue to consider many factors, including but not limited to the following:

  • Whether there is a more transmissible variant of COVID-19 identified in the area
  • Local rates of COVID-19 transmission or rate of positivity, and
  • Local ability to monitor and enforce compliance.

Contact sports bring people close together and increase the risk of transmission. If persons choose to return to high-risk sports, they must follow guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Athletes should be mindful of their activity outside of sports to minimize risk and reduce community spread. We must work together during these stressful times to ensure that our youth and adults have the opportunity to participate in athletics safely.

The New York State summary guidelines are posted on the NYForward website. All responsible parties (schools, businesses, leagues, organizations) must read and affirm the State’s detailed guidelines and develop a safety plan.

COVID-19 Vaccines for Senior Citizens

01 27 21 OFA COVID Vaccine For Senior Citizens

Recently, New York State opened COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to individuals age 65 or older.  Allegany County Office of the Aging (OFA) recognized that the population we already serve and have a relationship with would likely have questions regarding the vaccine and would need assistance finding and registering for available clinics.  To respond to this need, and consistent with our mission of coordinating and referring services for this population, we opened our phone lines specifically to help answer vaccine questions and direct services to our older adults.  As a result, we have created a list of older adults interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.  When vaccines become available, OFA uses this list to help register individuals for clinics.  This service is helpful to our residents who lack internet access or who would otherwise have a difficult time navigating New York State vaccine guidance to find clinics and/or register themselves.

As of this week, the Alfred Pharmacy is the only location currently allocated with vaccines specifically for those aged 65 and older.  OFA and the Alfred Pharmacy have partnered together to ensure that vaccines reach those who have contacted either location to express an interest in being vaccinated.  The Fillmore Pharmacy is now approved to administer vaccines and has also partnered with OFA regarding their future clinics.

We know that additional pharmacies across the County will become vaccination sites in the near future, and we will offer to create similar partnerships with each location as vaccine becomes available to them.  As the State has not provided a mechanism for a waiting list for clinics to use for older adults, we hope that these local efforts will help fill that void with a centralized hub of information.  As the current list of approved local pharmacies are all small “mom and pop” stores, a coordination of efforts may also help them alleviate some unexpected phone volume related to vaccine questions, especially as they continue to conduct their ordinary business during this time.  This is not a mandatory service for either OFA or the pharmacies, and some local pharmacies may find it more efficient for administration of services not to partner with OFA.  Whether we partner or not, we know our Allegany County pharmacies provide dedicated and well-run services, and OFA fully supports and appreciates whatever efforts they make to help vaccinate our older adults.

As of this week, our local Department of Health may only vaccinate individuals considered “essential workers” under Phase 1B.  However, we know that many older adults continue in the workforce beyond age 65 and that many serve as essential workers.  Individuals that fall into both categories and have contacted OFA may be referred to “essential worker” clinics at the Department of Health as vaccine and registration openings become available.  Additionally, we are working with our Veterans’ Service Agency to help them refer eligible veterans to any open vaccination clinics offered by the federal Veterans’ Administration.  We will continue to look for additional local vaccination clinic sites to refer our older adults to.

If you wish to receive information regarding a specific vaccination site, such as the Alfred Pharmacy or Fillmore Pharmacy, please contact them directly.  You may also continue to call OFA for information that is more general or vaccine registration assistance.  At this time, OFA is only serving those age 65 and older in regards to COVID-19 vaccine information and registration assistance due to the current vaccine eligibility guidelines set by New York State.

We know this is a confusing and frustrating issue.  Eligibility guidelines change frequently, as does guidance on what locations may vaccinate our older adults.  We anticipate that vaccines will become more available in the coming weeks and months, and the need for a list of interested individuals will diminish.  There may also come a time in the near future where more information and coordination is offered by the State or Federal government.  In the meantime, we are available to assist locally with the best information we have available at the moment.
