COVID-19 Update (September 8th, 2021):

At a special meeting of the Legislature on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021, the Legislature passed a motion that anyone entering the county office buildings must now wear a mask in the common areas of the building regardless of vaccination status. Please bring a mask with you to wear through the building when you come to the CCE-Yates County Office.

Given new evidence on the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant currently circulating in the United States, the CDC has added a recommendation for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission.

The Yates County Office Building is open to the general public from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.



CCE Yates County has daily office coverage, with 50% working in-person, and 50% working remotely. This includes work within the community (agriculture, gardening, natural resources, youth, and families) using social distancing protocols. Should you need to reach any of our staff members individually, visit our Staff page for their contact information. You can also send us a message via our Facebook page. For less time-sensitive matters, call our office at 315-536-5123 and leave a voicemail. 

CCE Yates has developed a reopening plan to facilitate the transitioning staff back to their primary place of work in response to the Governor’s New York Forward phased approach to re-open New York State. 

This document has been reviewed by the Yates CCE Board of Directors as of June 24, 2020

This plan will be updated as changes occur and will be posted to the public via our website, social media, and local media. Stay safe everyone.

In addition to what you'll find here on our website, we offer free or low-cost workshops on topics that range from how to start a vegetable garden to making a home spending plan. Explore our links, check out our upcoming events, then give us a call or visit our  Education Center to learn more. We're here to help, with information -- and people -- you can trust!
