New COVID cases; Vaccine scholarship incentive

COVID-19 cases for the week of May 31

This week there were four new positive cases of COVID-19. Three cases were at Guilderland High School and two of those required contact tracing. The fourth case was at Guilderland Elementary School. The principals in both buildings worked under the guidance of the Albany County Department of Health to determine who needed to quarantine and all of those individuals have been contacted.

Vaccine Scholarship Incentive Program

The “Get a Shot to Make Your Future” vaccine incentive is a public outreach campaign to increase awareness of the availability and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and provide incentives to New Yorkers 12-17 years of age to get a COVID-19 vaccination.

Parents or legal guardians of any New Yorker, ages 12 to 17, can enter their child who has received at least their first COVID-19 vaccine dose, for a chance to win one of 50, four-year full-ride scholarships (including tuition, fees, room-and-board, and expenses) to any New York State public college or university. 

The drawings will be conducted weekly, for five (5) weeks, beginning on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Ten weekly winners (for a total of 50 winners) will be announced each Wednesday.
