COVID fines on local biz, FLH/URMC partnership, and Auburn students dismissal .::. The Weekend Debrief 10/22/20

A closer look at upcoming elections with big time local implications, a discussion about the future of medicine after an announcement by Finger Lakes Health and the University of Rochester Medical Center that they would be working together, and the controversial story about an Auburn family that was told they would need to return to the school district if they wanted to continue learning (remotely or otherwise) in their hometown.

FingerLakes1.com News Director Josh Durso is joined in-studio by Finger Lakes Morning News Host Ted Baker (on Finger Lakes News Radio) inside the FL1 Studio.

The duo also discusses Governor Andrew Cuomo’s recent flip-flopping on travel restrictions to neighboring states. He said this week that it’s possible the state scrap the 14-day quarantine mandate, and move toward something ‘testing-based’. A handful of local businesses were fined $50 in Cayuga County, too. What about the COVID cluster linked to block parties in Ontario County and the future of one local fire department in Seneca County? All of those topics, and more are up for discussion on The Weekend Debrief presented by FL1 News.
