Chenango County expands contact tracing team ahead of potential winter spike

first_img“Continuing to spread throughout the country, we don’t expect Chenango County to be any different,” Sutton said. “Even today we’ve started to see an increase in cases; most of those cases are related to an event that would have happened Thursday or Friday last week.” CHENANGO COUNTY (WBNG) — As COVID-19 spikes are expected to take place throughout the nation this winter, local health officials are trying to plan for the future. Chenango County announced Friday it will be expanding its contact tracing team in anticipation of a rise in cases over the next couple of months. While officials said the team has been successful so far, they acknowledged they will be understaffed if this measure isn’t taken. County Director of Environmental Health Isaiah Sutton told 12 News that just because the area is very rural and isolated does not mean it can’t be severely impacted. Sutton said a lot of the recent rise is attributable to Thanksgiving gatherings. He said he fears a similar thing will happen around Christmas and the other holidays.last_img read more

Barbados, Panama sign air services agreement

first_imgLifestyleTravel Barbados, Panama sign air services agreement by: – July 9, 2011 Sharing is caring! Share 39 Views   no discussions Share Tweet Share George Hutson.BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Barbados and Panama have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Air Services that provides the framework for airlines from both countries to operate flights between the two states.The signing followed two days of negotiations on Tuesday and Wednesday.Minister of International Business and International Transport George Hutson said the successful outcome of the Air Service Negotiations will “expand international air services opportunities and facilitate increased opportunities for tourism, trade and commercial activity between our two countries in particular, as well as the wider central and South America.”He said it would also go a long way towards cementing the historical ties of family and friendship between Panamanians and Barbadians.The signing came just over a year after the two countries reached a Double Taxation Agreement (DTA). That tax agreement is expected to enhance trade and investment and also provide new scope for the movement of professors, teachers, artisans and sportspersons between the two countries. The signing of the MOU on air services culminates talks on both these areas. Barbados and Panama are both members of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), having ratified the Convention on International Civil Aviation, 1944. It is on the basis of that Convention that Member States of the ICAO established air services agreements either on a bilateral or a multilateral basis. Such agreements are a prelude to the establishment of air services between and beyond the territories of the states involved.Caribbean 360 Newslast_img read more

He needs to step up his game but I think he’s heading in the right direction.” SUNDAY RULES SEEKS TO STAY PERFECT AT SANTA ANITALeading trainer Phil D’Amato hopes to have a bang-up Fourth of July Monday with Sunday Rules when the five-year-old mare runs in the $100,000 Spring Fever Handicap, one in the popular Golden State Series, this for fillies and mares, three and up, at six furlongs.Sunday Rules, a daughter of the late Tribal Rule owned and bred by Nick Alexander, won three straight including the California Cup Sprint on Jan. 30 before fading to ninth after setting the pace in the Grade I Madison at Keeneland last out on April 9.“She’s been training well; her last couple breezes were dynamite,” said D’Amato, who also could enter Sidepocket Sue in the Spring Fever. “We’re looking forward to running Sunday Rules back at Santa Anita (where she is unbeaten in five starts).”D’Amato is well on his way to his second straight Santa Anita training title and overall his second ever, with a 22-13 lead over runner-up Jerry Hollendorfer and only eight racing days remaining in the Spring Meet.“We’re running our horses through their conditions and they’re all firing,” he said. “We’re doing well.” The contest cards will be used to draw the winners, who will be announced throughout the day from the Winner’s Circle.One lucky fan will become the final contestant entered into the drawing for the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC presented by Rusnak/Arcadia.

BAFFERT SWEET ON ‘CANDY’ IN AFFIRMEDDanzing Candy makes his first start for Bob Baffert in Saturday’s Grade III Affirmed Stakes for three-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles, and the Hall of Fame trainer is anxious to see what he’s got.“It will be interesting,” Baffert said between workers Thursday morning. “His last two races were sort of disasters. We taught him how to harness some of that speed. He’s got a good post and we should have options from there (No. five in a field of five).”Danzing Candy won the Grade II San Felipe Stakes last March when trained by Cliff Sise Jr. prior to finishing fourth by 13 ¼ lengths in the sloppy Santa Anita Derby and 15th by 20 lengths in the Kentucky Derby after leading both races.The Affirmed marks the first race under Baffert’s supervision.“I’m looking forward to seeing if what we’ve done has made a difference and to see what we have,” Baffert said.The field for the Affirmed, named for the 1978 Triple Crown winner: Curlin Rules, Victor Espinoza, 5-1; Dalmore, Kent Desormeaux, 4-1; Beaumarchais, Joe Talamo, 20-1; Prince of Arabia, Santiago Gonzalez, 6-1; and Danzing Candy, Rafael Bejarano, 2-5.
