First, thank you to all residents who continue to abide by social distancing guidelines. While we are not out of the woods yet with regards to the Covid-19 virus, the number of confirmed cases in Greene County continues to rise. However, we have had little impact in the Village to date and I am confident that we can keep it that way.
So how does the Governor’s executive order regarding face coverings impact us here in the Village?
For the most part, simply maintaining social distance with friends and neighbors is considered an effective way to reduce the spread of the virus. However, there are times when social distancing is difficult or impractical.
In the Village, we’re primarily concerned with the need to cover our faces when shopping or picking up take-out from a local restaurant or convenience shop. Under these circumstances, in accordance with State guidance, use of something to cover your nose and mouth is required.
In order to help to keep us all safe and prevent Covid-19 from taking root in the Village, I have instructed the Village Police to remind residents of this policy when in local stores. Please keep yourselves and your neighbors safe by wearing a mask when in local stores and restaurants.
Thank you and stay safe!
Mayor Stephan Bradicich
