Public Health and COVID-19

Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County is still your trusted resource of choice, when you need it the most.

Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) prioritizes the health, safety, and well-being of the communities we serve. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, and due to an abundance of caution, our office is closed to the public and our in-person programs and meetings have been postponed or moved to the virtual space until further notice. 

CCE staff is working with program participants, volunteers, stakeholders, and partners to consider options, including the online education model, that can allow us to continue programming and best serve our community during this time. Please visit our events page for the most up-to-date listings and events. 

Our Extension Education Center in Liberty is closed to the public, but lines of communication are OPEN as our team continues to address the evolving needs of the community. Call 845-292-6180 and leave a message, someone will return your call as soon as possible, or e-mail

Even if you are not concerned about your own health, we ask that you be mindful of your neighbors who may be stressed by the situation and worried about loved ones. Taking action now through social distancing to limit contact with one another may seem like extraordinary measures, but this strategy mitigates the spread of the virus and reduces the burden on our healthcare system as seen in the graph attached.

The COVID-19 outbreak is a rapidly evolving situation and CCE is committed to providing resources that will help keep our communities resilient through tough times. We will continuously update our events webpage at so you can stay informed about the status of each event.
