New York State has made it mandatory for ALL rear seated passengers to wear seatbelts. I would like to encourage everyone to comply with this new mandate, It WILL undoubtedly save lives.
Also, there was approximately a 66% increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in our County last month, with quite a few of those cases coming from the Dunkirk/Fredonia area. PLEASE continue to follow ALL COVID-19 safety guidelines; social distancing, wear face coverings if within two meters( approximately 6 feet) of anyone, and wash your hands frequently, stay away from large public or private social gatherings. We cannot stumble at the final stretch only to go back to more stringent regulations. We have this if we continue to be vigilant, respectful, patient, and kind to one another.
I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween.
Please remember to turn your clocks back tonight for Daylight savings Time.
Also, today is also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke and CO detectors to make sure that they function properly in your time of need.
