February 2021: Vaccination survey of staff

School districts across Monroe County have been encouraged to survey their staff to gauge who has received or intends to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. To support that effort, a voluntary Vaccination Survey has been conducted with the following results as of Feb. 9:

 Have you received the COVID-19 vaccination?
  • 30% (165) of staff indicated they have received one dose.
  • 4% (21) have received both doses of the vaccine.
  •  66% (363) indicated they have not received the vaccine.

Do you plan on receiving the COVID-19 vaccination as soon you are able to schedule an appointment?
  • 84% (427) of staff indicated they intend to get the vaccine as soon as an appointment is available.
  •  16% (81) indicated they do not intend to get a vaccine.
If you are planning on receiving the COVID-19 vaccination, do you have a scheduled appointment?
  • 57% (295) have scheduled an appointment
  • 30% (157) do not have an appointment, but plan on receiving the vaccine.
  • 13% (67) do not plan on receiving the vaccine.

NEW Quarantine guidelines

As of late December 2020, NYS updated its COVID-19 quarantine guidance to align with the latest CDC recommendations.

Under the new guidelines, people exposed to COVID-19 will be asked to quarantine for 10 days, rather than the previous 14 days. This quarantine can end after 10 days with no testing required.

Affected individuals are asked to monitor for symptoms for an additional 4 days and to self isolate should any symptoms develop.

Notable among the updates is that students who are sent home for symptoms that may be COVID will need testing only at the discretion of their health care provider.)
