THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Governor Cuomo announced high risk sports, which include wrestling, hockey, basketball and competitive cheerleading, could possibly begin as early as Feb. 1 under certain specific conditions. All 24 districts in Section X met to discuss the announcement and next steps in the decision-making process. The districts plan to work collaboratively with the St. Lawrence and Franklin County Departments of Public Health to evaluate current health metrics as well as health and safety considerations for student athletes, coaches, school staff, and the public before making a decision.
Should St. Lawrence County schools allow high-risk sports now?
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
North Country Assemblyman Mark Walczyk expressed opposition to legislation that would force the detention of New Yorkers alleged of carrying communicable diseases for up to eight business days, or longer pending a court order. The bill was originally introduced in response to an individual who flaunted an Ebola diagnosis, but given the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has raised new concerns about the impact it could have on New Yorkers if enacted.
Do you support a law allowing contagious patients to be detained during a state of emergency?
