“At the same time that the Capital Region is approaching Phase 4 of reopening the economy with tens of thousands of jobs in higher education, entertainment and more able to come back online, public health experts are already seeing states getting hit with a second wave of COVID-19. As businesses in places like Florida and Arizona voluntarily shutdown, families here are finally heading back to work,” said County Executive McCoy. “The only way we’re going to continue our forward momentum is if we continue to be cautious, wear masks and social distance while we return to a level of normalcy.”
