Cortland County announced on Thursday that the emergency order is still in place.

County Legislature chair Kevin Fitch (R-LD-8) issued the extension for an emergency order that has been in place since May 12.

The county’s emergency order prohibits county hotels, motels, owners of multi-family dwellings or owners of real property from accepting undocumented immigrants that may seek entry into the county.

Below is a breakdown of the county’s emergency order extension issued on Thursday:

The emergency order issued by the county was implemented after the federal government’s Title 42 expired on May 11. Details on the impact of Title 42 expiring can be viewed by clicking here.

According to the county’s emergency order, those who violate these provisions will be charged with a Class-B Misdemeanor, and potentially receive a $2,000 fine.

The county’s emergency order is in effect through June 10. Further details surrounding the executive order remain to be seen.
