Cortland County officials asked the county Health Department Tuesday to take the lead on informing all department officials of the precautions they must take in the event of a local Ebola case.
Mary Ann Haley, deputy director of the health department, said in a Budget and Finance Committee meeting Tuesday morning she is working on a comprehensive plan in the event Ebola is diagnosed in Cortland County.
Legislature Chairman Susan Briggs (R-Cortlandville) asked the health department to take the lead for all departments regarding Ebola protocols, after noting she received a call from a legislator who told her a department head wanted to purchase hazardous material suits.
“I told them to hold off because we’re waiting for the health department and I imagine you’re (Haley) talking to the state to come up with a plan forCortland County,” Briggs said.
