New York State Clean hand sanitizer is being provided free of charge to farms by New York State. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Seneca County will distribute the hand sanitizer to Seneca County farms and other agricultural businesses on Tuesday, June 2nd starting at 8 AM and concluding at 1 PM in Seneca Falls.

Farms and agricultural businesses wishing to receive New York State Clean hand sanitizer, which is available in one gallon pump containers, need to register to reserve quantities needed for themselves, their workers, and customers who may be shopping at their farm stands and agricultural businesses. Quantities of sanitizer requested may be adjusted before pick-up to ensure adequate supplies are available to as many farms and their employees and customers as possible.

NYS Clean hand sanitizer is a 75% alcohol-based sanitizer exceeding CDC recommended concentration. It is highly flammable and needs to be stored away from flame and direct source of heat. It is not drinkable and should not be in contact with food. NYS Clean is more liquid than a typical gel hand sanitizer. Refillable spray bottles are recommended for use by both farm employees and any customers the agricultural business may serve.

At the time of registration for the June 2nd distribution, farms will be able to choose a 30-minute time interval to allow for social distancing and to limit wait times. The location for pick up in Seneca Falls will be provided when registration is completed with a reply email. 

Farms interested in picking-up hand sanitizer should complete the online registration with farm contact information, requested quantity, and time for pick up.

We ask for one person per vehicle with pick-up and to please wear a face mask and remain in your vehicle. CCE Seneca staff will be on hand to load and will be practicing social distancing and wearing face masks to keep everyone safe.
