The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) - new web page created

Updated March 13, 2020:

The Town of Bethlehem is working hard to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and protect our staff, our residents, and our businesses.  To help keep you informed about what the Town is doing, we have created a new page with information about Town actions, things you can do, and links to more information from the key federal, state, and county health agencies.  Check it out here or use the quick link on the left side of the page.

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been reported in the Capital District, and the Town of Bethlehem is closely monitoring its spread and status in our community. Although we expect more infections to be reported as testing becomes more widely available, the New York State and Albany County Departments of Health currently rate the risk to Albany County residents as LOW. Residents at greatest risk remain those who have recently traveled internationally to countries with higher COVID-19 rates like China and Italy.

To contain this outbreak, protect ourselves, and protect others, we all need to (1) wash our hands regularly in soap and water (or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer), (2) follow good cough etiquette, and (3) stay home if feeling sick. Please visit the Albany County Dept of Health, NYS Dept of Health, and federal Centers for Disease Control for more detailed information on the outbreak and prevention steps.
