GLOW Region Covid-19 Update:
Orleans County’s 7-day rolling average among state’s highest

As COVID-19 numbers ramp up in New York, Orleans County has reported the highest seven-day rolling average in the state.

Orleans County’s seven-day rolling average of positives was 11.9 percent on Sunday, according to the state’s COVID-19 dashboard. It also reported a seven-day average of 92.2 cases per 100,000 people ranking second statewide behind Washington County.

In comparison, the statewide seven-day rolling average was 3.3 percent on Sunday, with a seven-day average of 27.8 cases per 100,000 people. The remainder of the GLOW region also remained comparatively high, including:

Genesee County’s seven-day rolling average was 9 percent on Sunday, with a seven-day average of 69.1 cases per 100,000 people.

Wyoming County’s seven-day rolling average was 9.2 percent on Sunday, with a seven-day average of 59.5 cases per 100,000 people.<br><br>
Livingston County’s seven-day rolling average was 8.6 percent on Sunday, with a seven-day average of 68.9 cases per 100,000 people. Those numbers have area health officials concerned.<
“As the colder weather and winter holidays begin to bring more people indoors, now is a good time to get your COVID-19 vaccination — including pediatric vaccines and booster doses for those who are eligible,” said Jennifer Rodriguez, Livingston County’s public health director.<br><br>

Rodriguez reminds residents that the pandemic is not over.<br><br>

“The health and safety of our community is paramount and we need to, more than ever remain vigilant,” she said. “If you are eligible get a booster as vaccine efficacy wanes over six months.”<br><br>

Livingston County is hosting its first COVID-19 vaccination clinics for children ages 5 to 11 this week. The clinics come as the county sees its number of active cases surpass 200. The 204 active cases as of Monday is triple the number of cases in Livingston County as compared to the same time last year, according to the county department of health.<br><br>

The increase is the result of “more things open to full capacity, increased testing efforts for surveillance in schools and non-vaccinated staff,” Rodriguez said.<br><br>

Two first dose Pfizer vaccine clinics for ages 5 to 11 years old are scheduled this week. The first is scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. Nov. 18 at the county’s Murray HIll Campus at 2 Murray Hill Drive, Mount Morris. 

The second clinic is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on Nov. 20 at Dansville High School, 282 Main St., Dansville. The clinics are by appointment only. To register, visit<br><br>

Statistics on Monday continued to show elevated COVID-19 rates. A total of 967 active cases were reported Monday in the region, according to area health departments. That compares to 829 active cases reported on Friday.<br><br>

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.

Editor's Note: Gerald and Valarie could always be seen in the family pew with Pamela, Stone and Winston at Perry First United Methodist Church and continue to be loved. Gerry will be sorely missed.

Valarie's presence was always valued and appreciated.


"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.
