“As a father of several sons who play sports, I understand how tough COVID-19 has been on our student athletes," said County Executive Jason Garnar. "Our kids need to be able to play sports, but we need to make sure they do it in a safe way. We will be working with all our school districts in Broome County over the next week to discuss how we can move forward with having a safe sports season for our kids.”
