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 http://eden.cce.cornell.edu/ 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 http://chautauqua.cce.cornell.edu/staff 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.
