MARCY, N.Y. – At least 50 high school students from multiple districts were exposed to coronavirus at a house party in Marcy, according to Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente.
Students from Clinton, New Hartford, Oriskany, Sauquoit Valley and Whitesboro school districts attended the party on Friday, Oct. 23. At least one person who was at the party has tested positive for COVID-19 so far.
Picente is asking those who attended the party, or know anything about the gathering, to call the coronavirus hotline at 315-798-5431, to help the county conduct proper contact tracing.
The county executive also expressed concern about these same students attending large gatherings Halloween weekend, that may allow the virus to spread quickly.
