Nov 12, 2020 6:33 am
With COVID-19 cases rising in alarming numbers in the Upper Hudson Valley, and throughout New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced new restrictions Nov. 11, meant to slow the spread of the disease. Cuomo announced a ten-person cap on any gatherings held between multiple households at private homes, even those held outdoors. And he also stopped in-person attendance at bars, restaurants, and gyms at 10 p.m. Cuomo emphasized that individuals need to wear masks so he does not have to implement more restrictions.

The last time we had this many cases was May 5. Nassau Supervisor David Fleming has suspended all visitation to the Rensselaer County town facilities for the immediate future. The Nov. 12 town board meeting and public hearing will be online only, the Town Clerk is working through a window, and the Nassau Transfer Station remains open. Rensselaer County confirmed two more COVID-19 deaths on Nov. 11, including the first at the Van Rensselaer Manor nursing home. Albany County reported 99 new cases of coronavirus on Nov. 11, the highest one-day total there since the pandemic began eight months ago. Ten Albany County restaurants now have had staff test positive for COVID-19 recently. Albany County Executive Dan McCoy urged anyone testing positive, or coming into contact with someone with COVID-19, to quarantine. “Fourteen days in your house is not gonna kill you,” McCoy said. “Do you want to go back to four months of being shut down and no one allowed out? Then help us… I’m begging you help us do our job so we can stop this and get back to some sort of normalcy."
