According to Livingston County Public Health Director, Jennifer Rodriguez, the number of COVID-19 positive cases has increased markedly in Livingston County over the last week. “Earlier this week, we recorded the highest number of active COVID-19 cases in Livingston County since the pandemic began in March,” stated Rodriguez.
As we move toward the winter season, it is anticipated that the challenges with maintaining social distance will increase, especially if community members frequent restaurants and have indoor social gatherings. While Livingston County recognizes the economic impact the pandemic has caused – particularly on businesses – it is also of great importance to help ensure that businesses stay open while protecting public health.
To this effect, the Livingston County Department of Health will continue to exercise its authority to perform enforcement under Public Health Laws. Fines may be issued for non-compliance with current New York State Executive Orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic in amounts ranging from $500 to $10,000.
Complaints or concerns about non-compliance with COVID-19 guidelines and associated Executive Orders can be made through NYS PAUSE and will get directed to the appropriate party, including the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and Department of Health.
