Governor Cuomo issued an executive order requiring all people in New York to wear masks or face coverings in public, including when taking public or private transportation or riding in for-hire vehicles. An executive order directs employers to provide essential workers with masks free of charge to wear when interacting with the public.

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators.  Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

Info for the General Public

In roughly 80% of those who become infected with COVID-19, symptoms will be mild and resolve without hospitalization. The public must refrain from participating in events and large gatherings.

Due to the limited availability of COVID-19 testing supplies in Sullivan County and surrounding counties, if you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath and have an underlying immune compromising health condition and/or are over the age of 60, New York State has alternative test sites available.

Sullivan County Public Health Services continues to approve testing for high risk individuals in collaboration with Catskill Regional Medical Center for specific high risk groups, and locally some health care providers continue to test their own patients following the same screening protocols.

However, you will need to call first, be screen, approved and given a time and location. Testing is free to all eligible New Yorkers as ordered by a health care provider or by calling the NYS COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065.
