August 2, 2021 (Waterloo, New York).    Seneca County Board of Supervisor’s Chairman Robert Hayssen issues the following statement:

“Seneca County is aware of the Guidance from the Center of Disease Control regarding communities with substantial spread of COVID-19.  Given the elimination of emergency provisions within New York State, I am encouraging masking in interior spaces, particularly for unvaccinated individuals, but am not able to mandate such at this time.  We will continue to monitor conditions in the coming days and will call a Special Meeting of the Board of Supervisors as necessary or will address this issue at our Regular Meeting on August 10, 2021.  In the meantime, I encourage all residents and visitors to act responsibly and to mask as appropriate when going inside buildings or places.”
