MAYVILLE, NY – Chautauqua County Government has issued a statement responding to online assertions regarding the safety standards of our Solar Eclipse glasses:

We want to reassure our residents that the solar eclipse glasses provided by Chautauqua County are not only certified but also undergo stringent safety measures. These glasses were purchased from Fyre Marketing LLC in Florida through a comprehensive public procurement bid process, ensuring the highest quality and safety standards.

The product description on the Fyre Marketing invoice explicitly states that the glasses are made from Paper Board, equipped with shade 14 safe solar lenses specifically for eclipse viewing. Furthermore, they are CE certified and ISO compliant, meeting the international safety standard ISO #12312-2. The manufacturing safety information is printed on each product, providing additional assurance of their safety for eclipse viewing.

We encourage everyone to utilize these glasses responsibly and enjoy the eclipse safely. More information on eclipse safety is available online at CHQGov.com/eclipse.
