MOST RECENT COVID-19 UPDATES FROM THE TOWN OF TUXEDO

Tuxedo Town Hall Reopening Monday August 3rd, 2020 - Posted 8/3/2020

Esteemed Town Employees, Town Board colleagues, Tuxedo residents, and visitors. The Tuxedo Town Hall is now open to the public. This follows many weeks of restricted access that was intended to protect Town employees and the general public. Now, Town offices, including the Town Clerk, all have regularly scheduled hours in order to serve you. Hand sanitizer will be at each door and masks are required to enter the building.

The Justice Court, our busiest unit, will resume “in person” operations this week. They have a backlog of cases to adjudicate so managing the crowds will be a concern. We will limit the number of people in the building at any one time and the flow of traffic will be unidirectional. Visitors to the court will enter through the front door, be admitted to the courtroom, go before the judge, and exit through the side door in the courtroom.

Visitors to the second floor, for the Building Department, Assessor, Recreation Department, Supervisor’s Office, or for any other purpose will be directed to enter through the back of the building, up the ramp. Visitors will be advised to call the person they are meeting to either set an appointment or to have someone open the door.

Town Board Meetings will continue to be held via WebEx until further notice. The Community Room, where we normally hold these meetings, is small with poor ventilation and  thus not suitable for any size crowd. I hope that in the fall we can begin hosting meetings in person. The Community Room is also a meeting space for our senior citizens so keeping them safe will be an important factor in deciding our public access policy.

All outgoing voice messaging must be updated to clarify that Town Hall is open and that staff are here on a regular schedule. Our webpage message will be updated and all signage should reflect these changes.

As the pandemic continues to unfold The Town Board, working under the direction of The Governor’s Office and Orange County officials, will update our  emergency response as necessary. These plans are all subject to change. 


We continue to move forward and strengthen our community. So, stay safe, work together, and continue to help those most in need.


Respectfully,  Ken English - Town Supervisor

MOST RECENT COVID-19 UPDATES FROM THE TUXEDO UNION FREE SCHOOL DISTRICRT

Community Notification of Comfirmed Case #8 - April 14 2021
 

April 14, 2021 
Dear Tuxedo Families, Faculty and Staff:

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that Tuxedo UFSD was notified today of a student at George Grant Mason Elementary School who has tested positive for COVID-19.  This is a new case that has been reported to the District.  Due to HIPAA, we are legally prohibited from disclosing any personally identifiable information about the individual or family.

This newly confirmed case requires a broad quarantine for the following individuals/grades: 

  • Second Grade

Please be reminded that students and staff members who were contacted by school personnel and directed to quarantine for any previous cases are to continue to follow their quarantine directive.*

*Please note: A directive to quarantine is when school personnel (e.g. school nurse, principal or secretary) contacts a parent/guardian directly about their child’s need to quarantine, dates of quarantine and the earliest date the child can return to school in-person and documentation needed.  If you did not receive such a phone call or contact from school personnel then you did not receive a directive for your child to quarantine.  When an emergency pivot is announced, it is only for the date stated in the announcement (similar to a snow day announcement) and instruction resumes as regularly scheduled the following day.

As with all confirmed cases, the Orange County Department of Health will investigate and identify through contact tracing protocols any individual who had close contact (direct or proximate) with the positive individual. Any staff member or parent/guardian of a child who has been exposed has already been notified of this exposure.

It is important to remember that all of our classrooms and shared spaces where people congregate are cleaned regularly throughout the day, and deep cleaned and sanitized at the end of each school day.

All Tuxedo UFSD students and staff are required to complete the daily COVID-19 Mandated Screening Questionnaire and self-monitor for symptoms; following CDC guidance if symptoms develop.

We cannot emphasize enough that parents, students, and staff members must be just as vigilant following the public health guidance outside of school, including limiting group gatherings, practicing good hygiene, wearing masks, and following social distance guidelines. 
As always, the health and safety of students and employees is our top priority. We appreciate your continued support.

Per the letter to families, dated 2/3/2021, the District protocol on reporting confirmed COVID-19 cases to the community was shared. The letter below is posted on our district webpage. Each letter is numbered for increased transparency on reported cases for George Grant Elementary School and George F. Baker High School. These letters also include information for families of students who attend out of district programs who may be affected by the quarantine of District personnel.

NO NEW ACTION IS NECESSARY FOR THIS NEW CASE

Dear Neighbors, 

I hope you are all safe, well, and taking good care as we finally enter spring. My top priority continues to be getting our district the access to vaccines it desperately needs. I’m delighted to share that a permanent, state-run vaccine site is coming to Orange County at the SUNY Orange campus in Middletown. It remains urgent that a state site be established in Rockland County, something I'm continuing to push for every day. 

Simply put: I made it clear to state officials that I would not rest until west-of-Hudson was provided with an accessible rollout of the vaccine. As one of the highest impacted regions in the state, this announcement was a long time coming and the culmination of countless discussions with the state. I continue pushing feverishly for a state vaccine site to open in Rockland County, and recently co-sponsored a bill that would mandate the state to do so. 

I know things continue to change rapidly and I will continue to keep everyone posted. Below you’ll find a comprehensive breakdown of the latest vaccine updates. Of course, my office is always here if you need our assistance. Call us at 845-567-1270 or send an email to skoufis@nysenate.gov
