WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - An employee of Carthage Area Hospital has tested positive for COVID-19. Public health says the hospital remains fully open and is able to service the health care needs of the community:

We have been warned to prepare for this, it’s here. The hospital staff is in the front line of getting this; they come in contact every single day with sick people!!

Finally got my claim finished after 3 days only to be told I needed to call in order to finish it...then only to be hung up on multiple times.

I filed on line at 3 am and it worked all right.

Distilleries in the north country are doing their part to help battle COVID-19. They’re making cleaning spray and hand sanitizer:

This is awesome. It's great how people can come together, especially business.
