Specialist in infectious diseases weights worm mandates

BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – As corona condition improves in Erie County, the county director remains hopeful that not only will the county’s face mask mandate be rolled back, but the area could be one step closer to achieving endemic status.

“If things continue in this trend, there is a possibility that we will be able to lift this mask requirement in February, but we are not there yet,” said Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz. “There are still people dying, most of them unvaccinated, especially if they are under 60. I’m just asking everyone to carry on with us.”
