Picente was also joined by Broome County Executive Jason Garnar. Both officials talked about getting businesses back up and running as the reopening phases continue. They also addressed the financial strain the pandemic has put on local governments, due in part to money spent on necessary personal protective equipment.

“We're buying millions of dollars’ worth of PPE. The overtime that we have for our workers on the weekends, working nights and doing the tracing, and other aspects of this and dealing with the normal course of business in county business, which doesn’t stop,” said Picente.

Picente says Oneida County has spend more than $2 million on PPE already.
