Dr. Ronel Cook, the Superintendent of the Catskill schools, announced more COVID-19 cases there on Sept. 22. "I wanted to inform you that two Catskill Elementary School students and an employee at Catskill High School have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. One student was last at school on September 17, while the other student and the employee were last at school on September 20. No additional quarantining resulting from contact within the school setting was required for either case," Cook wrote online. Though school only resumed last week, Catskill schools previously reported other COVID-19 cases. So have schools in Cairo, Greenville, and Coxsackie, and in nearby Saugerties. On July 2 there was just one case of COVID-19 in Greene County. On Aug. 2 there were 19 cases. On Sept. 16 Greene County topped 100 COVID-19 cases, with 134 as of Sept. 19. Greene County officials have changed no policies as the case counts increase.
