Lewis County Declares State of Emergency in Response to COVID-19

March 16, 2020   12:00 p.m.
    **Lewis County has declared a State of Emergency in response to the COVID-19
    virus. Officials had scheduled a press conference for 11 AM to discuss the
    declaration, update the status of tests performed in the county and other COVID-
    19 related topics. After our arrival officials decided to postpone the press
    conference to an unspecified time (late this afternoon possibly) as new guidance
    was coming in from NYS on the closure of bars, restaurants and a reduction in
    local government staffing. We agreed those topics needed to be addressed as
    well and could still be at a later time, but we still wanted to proceed with the other
    topics so as to not overwhelm people with large dumps of information at one time.
    Officials ultimately decided to postpone the press briefing, but did provide a
    statement (which is included below.) Currently there are no confirmed cases of
    the virus in Lewis County. Five individuals have been tested, with three tests
    returned with a negative result and two results pending. We'll continue to update
    this evolving situation as more information becomes available.**
