*Please note that we are not able to provide updates on active cases, recovered cases and total tests during the weekend. Those numbers will be updated on Monday.
County Reopening Website
Remember to visit the County’s new COVID-19 reopening website, www.saratogacountyny.gov/county-reopening. The website will be updated regularly with information pertaining to when certain businesses may begin to reopen.
Masks in public
The Governor recently signed an Executive Order allowing business owners to deny entry to people who refuse to wear masks. It’s been proven that widespread mask-wearing is an effective tool against the spread of COVID-19, and that is why this Executive Order was signed. Face masks work two ways by protecting both the wearer and others.
Per guidelines from the CDC, the exceptions to the mask mandate are:
Children under age 2
Anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance
Data Dashboard enhanced
The dashboard now includes more comprehensive information and charts on positive cases. A link to the data dashboard, which is updated on weekdays, can be found at the top of the Saratoga County Department of Public Health Services’ COVID-19 website, located here: https://www.saratogacountyny.gov/departments/publichealth/…/
