Cooperative Extension puts a wealth of useful, research-based information at your fingertips!

CCE prioritizes the health, safety, and well-being of the communities we serve and the staff who carry out our work. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and after much consideration and conversation with the County Health Department, Cornell University, and Jamestown Community College, CCE Chautauqua leadership is making a few important decisions:

We understand this causes a great deal of inconveniences but people are the most important component to our work – whether staff, volunteers, board, or program participants. If possible, stay home and wash your hands often.

We encourage you to refer to the Cornell EDEN website for excellent resources and reliable links. Staff should also refer to the CCE staff site for resources. We appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this ever changing situation.

  • Effectively immediately, we must now suspend most in-person programming until further notice.
  • Our office is closed and staff are working from home. They can be reached by phone or email. Visit to connect with a staff member.
  • Staff travel is limited until further notice and they should not be attending in-person group meetings, regional programs, or any professional development until further notice.
