MOUNT MORRIS — In preparation for the fall and a possible second wave of COVID-19, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Livingston County has scheduled a third Hand Sanitizer & Face Mask Distribution event for the agriculture community on Tuesday, Sept. 29 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Mt. Morris.

This free event is limited to farmers, producers, and agriculture-related operations.

Sanitizer is available in one gallon pump and 2 oz. spray bottles. Participants can also receive washable, cloth face coverings. Quantities will be limited to 2 gallons, 20 spray bottles, and 20 face masks.

Participants are encouraged to pre-order by sending an email to livingston@cornell.edu. Pick-up will be done at the side entrance of the CCE Livingston County office. Those unable to attend should contact the CCE Livingston County office to make alternate arrangements.

Previous distribution events were held in May and July. Altogether, more than 1,100 two-ounce spray bottles, 95 one-gallon pump bottles, and 1,700 face coverings have been distributed.

The upcoming event also offers an opportunity to ask questions about COVID-19 or other agriculture-related concerns. As a part of New York Forward, all businesses are required to have a customized, written safety plan that details specifically how they will prevent and manage COVID-19. Therefore, CCE Livingston County can be a resource for farmers, producers, and agriculture-related operations working to create these plans.
