Tioga County Legislative Chairwoman Martha Sauerbrey has announced with great sorrow another death due to COVID-19. “I am sure this person had friends and family and are feeling loss today. Our deepest sympathies to you,” said Sauerbrey.
“We had all hoped the COVID experience would be over by now but not only is it not over, our numbers are growing beyond what we saw earlier in the year. There are cases of COVID-19 all over our county along with many other counties in our region.
“We must use caution as we go about our daily routine and be sure to practice good health habits, wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands. During the next few weeks, it would be good to limit your travel and social engagements to protect yourself from the chances of contracting the virus. If you do choose to socialize and spend time with people, remember to practice safe habits,” said Sauerbrey.
