FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Five states have been added to the Travel Advisory for COVID-19 for a total of 35 states and territories covering more than half the nation.

09 22 20 ACDOH COVID Travel Press Release 09 22 20

As COVID-19 transmission has reached a very low level in New York, vigilance must be maintained to ensure that New York does not see a surge from states with increasing community transmission of COVID-19. Based upon Governor Cuomo’s update today, September 22, 2020, five states have been added (Minnesota, Arizona, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Wyoming) to the list for a total of 35 states and territories (covering more than half the nation). The following states and territories still meet the criteria for required quarantine:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Guam
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • Nebraska

  • Oklahoma
  • Puerto Rico
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin
  • Wyoming

This is based upon a seven-day rolling average, of positive tests in excess of 10 percent, or number of positive cases exceeding 10 per 100,000 residents.  If you have traveled from within one of the designated states with significant community spread as defined by the metrics above, you must quarantine when you enter New York for 14 days from the last travel within such designated state. The requirements of the travel advisory do not apply to any individual passing through designated states for a limited duration (i.e., less than 24 hours) through the course of travel. Examples of such brief passage include but are not limited to: stopping at rest stops for vehicles, buses, and/or trains; or lay-overs for air travel, bus travel, or train travel.  Airports being monitored for travelers from these states and territories include: Rochester, Niagara Falls, Elmira, Ogdensburg, Plattsburgh, JFK, LaGuardia, Albany, Hancock (Syracuse), Stewart (Newburgh) and Buffalo-Niagara and MacArthur (Islip).

The travel advisory requires all New Yorkers, as well as those visiting from out of state, to take personal responsibility for complying with the advisory in the best interest of public health and safety by calling the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 to receive quarantine guidance and paperwork. To file a report of an individual failing to adhere to the quarantine pursuant to the travel advisory, please call 1-833-789-0470 or visit this website: https://mylicense.custhelp.com/app/ask. Individuals may also contact the Allegany County Department of Health.

Allegany County DOH Provides a Reminder on How COVID-19 Statistics are Collected

09 22 20 ACDOH COVID 19 Statistics At Colleges

The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) would like to remind residents that the COVID-19 statistics for Allegany County are driven by the specifics of each confirmed case, the number of people released from quarantine/isolation each day and the number added to quarantine/isolation each day.

In Allegany County, we have three colleges/universities who report COVID-19 statistics of their own.  It is important to remember that each college campus is made up of students who live on campus, students who live off campus, students and employees who commute from Allegany County, and students and employees who commute form other counties in New York State and even the state of Pennsylvania. For ACDOH purposes, those that live out of county or state would be reported under that county or state. So ACDOH numbers will almost always differ from the college numbers based on the county or state of residence. If a student or employee lives out of state or county, they may be transferred to that state or county for follow-up after the investigation is complete.

Important things to remember:

  • Remember not all employees and students at our 3 colleges/universities are residents of Allegany County so our numbers will not always increase by the numbers recorded by the 3 colleges/universities. Some cases and/or contacts will be counted by the counties or state where they live.
  • Remember these are not just numbers, these are people who live and work or go to school in Allegany County. Some may be older adults, some may be younger adults, and some may be children. Some are sick and some are healthy. All are worried. Try to think of yourself in their situation which they cannot control. Let’s give them support and privacy.

For more information on COVID-19 statistics, call the Allegany County Department of Health at 585.268.9250 or email healthinfo@alleganyco.com.

The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) would like the community, gym/health club facility owner/operators and members to know we have received the reopening gyms and fitness centers guidelines; interim guidance for gyms and fitness centers during COVID-19 public health emergency; and the NY forward safety plan template. These documents are available at https://forward.ny.gov/phase-four-industries.

In the guidance, the New York State Department of Health has listed more than gyms, fitness centers and health club facilities. These guidelines apply to fitness activities and facilities, including, but not limited to, standalone, hotel, residential, and office gyms and fitness centers; gyms and fitness centers in higher education institutions; yoga/Pilates/barre studios; boxing/kickboxing gyms; fitness boot camps; CrossFit or other plyometric boxes and other group fitness classes (e.g. spin, rowing, dancing). See the guidance documents at https://forward.ny.gov/phase-four-industries.  The interim guidance is subject to change as the state will be closely working with local health departments during the initial reopening as a pilot phase to monitor compliance of owners/operators.

We understand the eagerness of the businesses and communities in resuming these operations to provide access and expand opportunities for physical activity to maintain good health. As soon as we receive additional information or any additional changes to reopening, we will be reaching out to the facilities in Allegany County.  The adherence to social distancing and face covering requirements, and cleaning and disinfection protocols will continue to be vital to keeping disease transmission low to protect our residents.

Owner/operators of the above facilities with questions should consult the guidance materials.  If you are an owner/operator, have additional questions, or have not been contacted by the Allegany County Department of Health, please call the ACDOH at 585-268-9250 and press 1 for environmental health.

08 17 20 ACDOH ServNY Press Release

Roll up your sleeves and ServNY

 The Allegany County Department of Health would like to remind Allegany County residents you can “Roll up your sleeves and ServNY.”  ServNY, a volunteer management system administered by the department’s Office of Health Emergency Preparedness (OHEP), is a web-based registry of individuals who make themselves available to assist on behalf of New York State during an emergency. Currently 6,546 people have volunteered to help when needed.

Health care professionals are needed. A disaster can overwhelm a community’s ability to quickly provide appropriate care to victims. Volunteers are needed to help out during such times.  We are living in one of those times right now with COVID-19. Licensed health care professionals willing to respond to a disaster—either locally, statewide, or across the nation—are strongly encouraged to register with ServNY.  Registering before the need arises is important, as credentials are verified upon registration and periodically thereafter. This helps to ensure that when a community needs extra hands, those hands are qualified to provide the appropriate care. When volunteers are needed, ServNY will automatically notify potential volunteers via phone or e-mail with the information necessary for a volunteer to determine if they are ready and available for the assignment.

Established after 9/11.  OHEP developed the ServNY volunteer registry in partnership with county health departments, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Medical Society of the State of New York, hospital associations, and other medical professional organizations. The registry, established in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is currently used by all local health departments and Medical Reserve Corps for management of volunteer programs.  Allegany County will need volunteers.  COVID-19 has stressed out communities across the state including Allegany County.  At some point we will have a vaccine and will need to get it out to our county residents. Medical professionals signed up on ServNY will be needed across the state, which means limited numbers for rural counties like Allegany.

Please if you can help the residents of Allegany County, sign up today. Registration in ServNY is open to any health care or mental health professional, as well as laypersons who are willing to serve in administrative or support roles during public health emergencies. To learn more and to register, go to www.health.ny.gov/ServNY.”

08 12 20 Bat Rabies 2020

TO:                 All Media Sources

FROM:           Theresa K. Moore, Supervising Public Health Educator/Public Information Officer

RE:                Catch the Bat!

DATE:            August 6, 2020

The following is a news release on “Catch the Bat” in Allegany County. The Allegany County Department of Health would like to remind residents and visitors, if you find a bat in your home that may have been in contact with a person or pet, please “Catch the Bat”! Do not release it! 

Please release this information as soon as possible. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.  If you have any questions or need more information, please send the request in writing to me at mooretk@alleganyco.com or by fax at 585-268-9264.  

News Release:  Catch the Bat! 

Bats are the leading cause of human rabies deaths in the U.S. These deaths are primarily linked to in apparent or unreported exposures from bats inside occupied structures such as homes or camps. It is not unusual to find bats in homes in New York State, and the presence of bats usually does not result in a need for rabies post exposure prophylaxis. Most (97%) bats tested at the NYS Wadsworth Center’s Rabies Laboratory are negative for rabies. However, many of the human rabies cases in the United States since 1990 appear to have acquired their disease from an unrecognized bat bite in a home situation. That is why it is so important to “CATCH THE BAT”!

Here are steps to take to keep bats out of the home environment, especially sleeping quarters:

  • Close unscreened doors and windows open to the outside.
  • Use window screens, chimney caps, and draft-guards beneath doors to attics,
  • Seal up all openings larger than 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch square into the attic, basement, walls, or occupied areas of the house including electrical and plumbing openings.
    • Use materials such as expanding spray-on foam, caulk, wire mesh, wood that fits tightly, steel wool (around pipes that enter buildings), or polypropylene bird netting, to seal or cover gaps and holes.
  • Listen to see if you hear squeaking noises coming from attic, walls, or elsewhere.
  • Check attic space, rafters, porches, and walls for signs of roosting bats, including bat guano and crystallized urine, or bare scratched areas on beams.
  • Walk around the outside of the house at dusk to see if bats are flying out of the house to feed and before dawn to see if bats are flying into the house to roost.
  • Special netting can be used to allow bats to exit a house, but not re-enter.
  • Pest control experts specializing in bat control should be consulted when necessary.
  • Killing or poisoning the bats is seldom a necessary or desirable solution.
  • DO NOT seal openings while bats are inside–this may drive them into occupied areas or create a sanitary problem if the bats are trapped and die inside.
  • Major home renovations and sealing should be done during the winter when bats have mostly left buildings.

The Allegany County Department of Health would like to remind you, if you find a bat in your home that may have been in contact with a person or pet, please CATCH THE BAT!  DO NOT RELEASE IT!!!  A child, an older person, someone who is speech impaired, or someone who is sleeping while a bat is in their room may not be able to tell you if they were bitten. When the bat is not available to be tested – it has been destroyed, set free, or thrown away –the recommendation from the New York State Department of Health and the Allegany County Department of Health would be that everyone who may have been in the direct room with the bat while sleeping, or bitten by the bat, have the post exposure rabies vaccinations.

Things to remember: 

  • How to capture a bat.
    • turn on room lights and close the windows
    • close the room and closet doors
    • wait for the bat to land
    • wearing heavy gloves, place a coffee can, pail or similar container over the bat
    • slide a piece of cardboard underneath the container or against the top of the container, turn it right side up and tape the cardboard tightly to the container.
  • Download a video on how to catch a bat at health.ny.gov/diseases/communicable/zoonoses/rabies/ (box on upper left side of page).
  • Children sleep heavily and may not awaken from the presence of a small bat.
  • A bat bite can be small and not easily noticed.
  • For assistance with “bat-proofing” your home, See the list at the beginning of article.
  • DO THE MATH. If you have the bat and it needs to be tested, you and your family have at least a chance the bat will not have rabies and you will not need vaccinations.  If there is no bat to test, your chances of receiving the post exposure vaccinations is 100%.
  • CATCH AND KEEP any bat found inside your home.
  • Contact the Allegany County Department of Health- Environmental Health Division at 585-268-9266 or 585-268-9250 and press 1 with questions or for more information.
    • Speak to a Public Health Sanitarian about whether or not the bat needs to be sent in for testing. They will ask questions about where and when the bat was found in your home and who had contact or possible contact with the bat.
  • Keep your pets’ current on rabies vaccinations! The Health Department offers free rabies vaccination clinics every few months to assist in keeping your pet vaccinated and up to date.
