ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. --- Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente said the county will begin releasing the names of individuals that were found to be in violation of the county's COVID guidelines. This is the latest measure by the county to try and stop the spread of COVID-19. 

Picente said the county has received a large number of complaints about businesses and large gatherings over the past several weeks. Before this,  the county did not release this information. Now that cases are rising, Picente said this is information the public has a right to know.

"When they are to the point of repeat or egregious violations in which there is no immediate acknowledgment or avoidance of it, I think it's important for people to know that we have taken certain action," said Picente.

The database will list the name of the individual, business, or organization, what they did, and the amount of the fine. Picente said this information will be posted to the database only after the case has been resolved. 

For example, a person that could end up on the list could be someone that was found to have hosted a large gathering and was investigated and then cited by the health department. A business can end up on that list if they are found to not be enforcing the county's COVID guidelines.

"These cases they are entitled to a hearing depending on what the circumstance of the complaint was. So there is the benefit of a hearing for these individuals in which they can state their case," said Picente.

Picente said there are around 20 cases that are on the county's radar. Those cases are a mix of individuals and businesses. Picente plans on releasing more information regarding the database during Wednesday's briefing.
