The Wyoming County Health Department is closely following a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in partnership with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our local health care providers and facilities.
The 2019 Novel (New) Coronavirus was first detected in China that has not been previously found in humans. This coronavirus can lead to fever, cough and shortness of breath. There are thousands of confirmed cases in China, including cases outside of Wuhan and additional cases being identified in a growing number of countries internationally, including the United States. There are ongoing investigations to learn more about this virus.
Individuals who are experiencing symptoms and may have traveled to areas of concern, or have been in contact with somebody who has traveled to these areas, should call ahead to their health care provider.
This is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. For the latest information, go to CDC COVID-19 website.

State Septic System Replacement Program
The Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017 (L. 2017, c. 57, Part T) established the Septic System Replacement Fund to provide a source of funding for the replacement of cesspools and septic systems in New York State. This grant program (the “Program”) seeks to reduce the environmental and public-health impacts associated with the discharge of effluent from cesspools and septic systems on groundwater used as drinking water, as well as threatened or impaired waterbodies. Silver Lake and Java Lake have been identified as threatened or impaired waterbodies in Wyoming County. Click here to see a complete program summary.
If your property is located next to one of the identified waterbodies and you wish to participate in this program, please complete the online grant application.
