COVID-19 Update:

A resolution was unanimously passed by the Yates County Legislature has made mask-wearing optional for all visitors and employees at county-owned and operated buildings. Masks will be required for those residents that attend COVID vaccinations clinics put on by Public Health in the County Office Building.

Visitors to the CCE-Yates County office are not required to wear masks (but one can be provided upon request). 

The Yates County Office Building is open to the general public from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.


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 or call our office at 315-536-5123

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 posted to the public via our website, social media, and local media. Stay safe everyone.
