The Chautauqua County Board of Health met over Zoom Thursday night. They are the first county board to return to virtual meetings due to the increase of COVID-19 cases.

By GREGORY BACON According to Hamernik, the original fine was $2,000 but it was reduced. “Basically, this was an individual that would go to work without wearing a mask and following the contact tracer’s instructions not to go to work as a hair person,” he said.

During the Chautauqua County Board of Health meeting, Douglas Hamernik, a public health sanitarian with the county Environmental Health Services, said an individual had violated the New York state sanitary codes regarding following contact tracer orders of isolation in the Jamestown area. He added that she was told not to work and social distance, but refused to do so. He did not say when the incident occurred and said she has since paid the fine.
