Griffiss COVID-19 site a win for county residents


I would like to commend County Executive Anthony Picente, the Oneida County Health Department, the Sheriff’s Department, the many armed forces service members, state police and all the other fine individuals that support the COVID-19 Test facility and COVID-19 Vaccine facility at Griffiss. I have personally used each of these essential local resources and was extremely impressed on both occasions.

It is evident what an enormous amount of planning went into these efforts. Every aspect of the operation was performed as if they have been doing this for many years. Each of these operations is adequately and efficiently staffed, and every individual was friendly, upbeat and eager to assist. The logistics are well-thought out and the whole operation runs very smoothly.

Sometimes it is easy to forget the enormous amount of support our local government provides to us in times of crisis. These folks have worked tirelessly to support us throughout the pandemic and their efforts have not gone unnoticed. Thank you, each and every one of you.
