Re-opening Plans during Covid-19

CCE Delaware County releases Re-opening Plan

Our offices remain closed to the public at this time. This document serves as the written safety plan outlining how Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County (CCE) will aid in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 during recovery and re-opening.

The following procedures have been developed to facilitate the transitioning of staff back to their primary place of work in response to the Governor’s New York Forward phased approach to re-open New York State. This plan is a living document and will be updated and modified as preparation for future phases of the plan are rolled out and additional requirements are outlined by regulatory agencies.

Our plan is available at
