Monroe County Enters ‘Common Sense Phase’ in Navigating COVID-19

Written by on February 11, 2022

Now that Governor Kathy Hochul has lifted the mask mandate and left the choice for counties, Monroe County announces that we have entered the “common sense phase” of controlling COVID-19. Our new phase means staying home if you don’t feel well and isolating or quarantining if you test positive for COVID. Monroe County Public Health Commissioner Dr. Michael Mendoza stated; “When you look at all the data taken together, I think it’s pretty safe to conclude omicron is behind us.”

Monroe County Executive also added in a briefing yesterday; “Even though mandates are ending, it doesn’t mean that COVID is over. It means we are in a new phase of controlling it…It is still important to get vaccinated, boosted, and protect yourself and your family…We will have to look at the data as we go to the next following weeks. I think we all want to get to a place where our kids don’t have to wear masks anymore in school and I think we are almost there.”
