“Now is not the time for social gatherings,” said Sheriff Zurlo. “If you have to go out, go alone only if the reason for going is essential.”
This message comes after recent reports of gatherings in public areas where individuals are failing to maintain proper social distancing. The Saratoga County Department of Public Health, the New York State Department of Health and the U.S. Center for Disease Control are all advising that individuals practice social distancing and avoid gathering in groups. The County Department of Public Health is advising residents to wear masks when they go out in public so that those who have the virus but may not have symptoms do not transmit it to others.
