Covid-19 -GLOW Counties Update:
New coronavirus-related deaths reported in Wyoming, Livingston

Area health departments are continuing to warn of COVID-19’s dangers as new deaths are reported in the GLOW region. The Livingston County Department of Health reported four COVID-19 related deaths among county residents this week. Another death was also reported in Wyoming County.

“This week was a sobering reminder that COVID-19 is very much still with us and still spreading,” County Administrator Ian Coyle said in a statement.

Wyoming County has had a 10.9% positivity rate over the last seven days, far above the statewide totals,” Wyoming County officials said in their own update issued Wednesday. “For unvaccinated adults, the pandemic remains a daily threat, and a personal choice to stay unvaccinated will continue to put you and those around you at risk.”

The state Department of Health was reporting 75 COVID-19-related deaths among Livingston County residents. The state data is compiled through the Health Electronic Response Data System, or HERDS, which is a state Department of Health source that collects confirmed daily death data as reported from hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities.

“We offer our deepest condolences to all those who have lost family members, friends and loved ones during this difficult time,” Livingston County Public Health Director Jennifer Rodriguez said in a statement. “We encourage our residents to remain vigilant as we are in the mdist of the holidays, the flu season and the colder winter months when people gather indoors more often,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez asked people to consider getting a COVID-19 vaccination if they have not done so, including those who are eligible for booster doses or have children eligible for pediatric COVID-19 vaccines.

“A major benefit of the COVID-19 vaccine is that it significantly decreases the likelihood of hospitalization and severe illness related to the virus,” Rodriguez said. County officials said that while cases are still climbing, Livingston County is not considering mandates related to masks or vaccines.

“The county remains committed to serving the public’s needs as it relates to this pandemic response. This entails testing, vaccine distribution and marketing, reporting of cases, partnerships with schools both K-12 and higher education, and the promotion and deployment of pediatric and booster vaccine clinics,” Coyle said. “This is all done in a pro-public health and transparent fashion with best-in-class service from our amazing staff.”

Coyle also said that the county’s response “entails speaking directly and honestly to a very weary public about the virus.”

“This is a powerful, easily transmittable and deadly virus, and this is the season where spikes and surges will occur,” Coyle said. The county administrator said the regional hospital system is already seeing affects related to capacity.

“Both unvaccinated and vaccinated people can get, spread and die from the virus — however, it does tend to prey more heavily on the unvaccinated in terms of impact and the overall count of hospitalizations,” Coyle said. He urged people to protect themselves and their family.

“Mask up when and where appropriate, and stay home and isolate if you are experiencing symptoms,” he said. “Responsible, community-minded citizenship will go a long way to improving outcomes.”

Walter D. “Pete” Mairs, 81, died peacefully on July 23, 2021. Born in Avon, N.Y., on Sept. 3, 1939, Pete was a longtime resident of Geneva, N.Y., and these past many years in Buffalo, N.Y., as well as his beloved Silver Lake. Pete is survived by his wife, Linda Bergstrom Mairs, a loving and true companion; children, Mimi C. Mairs, Jonathan B. Mairs; sisters, June Huff, Helen Dole; brother, Thomas Mairs; stepchildren, Daniel Brinkworth, Jennie Ramsey; sister-in-law, Anne Bergstrom, eight beautiful grandchildren, and nieces and nephews. A service and celebration of life is planned for the fall when all can share the joy of Pete’s life together. Arrangements by Stephenson – Dougherty Funeral Home, Avon, N.Y.

Editor's Note: It was a privilege knowing and working with Pete Mairs during his presidency of the Silver Lake Institute. He was a kind and gentle man, but also firm in his leadership. I served as Treasurer and Chaplain of SLI during those years and I could always depend on Pete's presence in the worship service. He was a man of faith and a gem of a human being. May he rest in God's care.

"Kathy P." passed November 8, 2021, of Hamburg and Boston, NY. Beloved daughter of Joseph and Barbara Michalak; loving sister of Daniel Michalak; devoted wife of the late Jeffrey Praczkajlo; cherished mother of Jennifer (Shawn) Jump; loving babcia of Lily Jump; also survived by many beloved family members and friends who became her family. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Editor's Note: "Kathy P." as she was better known to us at Silver Lake was an annual summer visitor for most of the last number of years at the invitation of Silver Laker Julia Hoffner. She stayed at the Hoffner Cottage, and became known as both the fun visitor with the vivacious smile to the neighbors at the intersection of Haven Ave. and the Ames Walkway. Kathy P. and Julie could be seen walking and talking between the cottage and the Hoffner boathouse where they could be close to the water. She was also occasionally seen at the Saturday morning breakfasts at Stoody Hall. Her stay was anywhere between 4 days and a week where she had the opportunity to develop a love for Silver Lake. She was not yet eligible for retirement when late last week she developed "a cold" and had to remain home from her job. She did not update her condition over the weekend so the local police made a wellness visit and found her deceased on Monday. She was one of those many people who found Silver Lake and friendship for brief respites where she also found new strength and energy to return to work. She is being particularly mourned by those in the Haven/Ames neighborhood. She will be memorialized next summer at the annual Celebration of Life Memorial Service at Epworth Hall.
