CCHS Supports Local Healthcare Workers

Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Chautauqua County healthcare workers and first responders are putting themselves at risk daily in the global effort to get control of COVID-19.  The board, staff and volunteers of the Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) thank them for their efforts to keep our community safe. CCHS was able to assist their efforts by donating masks with shields and surgical gloves to UPMC Chautauqua WCA in Jamestown and masks to Heritage Green - Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing by Heritage Ministries in Greenhurst.  CCHS Veterinary Technician Molly Loomis said, “We wanted to do what we could to support our local healthcare workers. With our spay/neuter clinic temporarily closed we will not be using these supplies right now.  Loomis also also said, “The supplies were donated to us by JCC’s Nursing Program so we are really just paying it forward.” Representatives from both facilities were very excited to receive the supplies. 

We encourage you to take measures to help our local healthcare workers by following guidelines set by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention
