Albany Cares About Your Safety

Albany County has been working diligently with its partners across the Capital Region and the State of New York to stop the spread and flatten the curve. As part of the New York Forward reopening strategy, all businesses and employees have been asked to sign a pledge that they understand the safety measures and are committed to doing their part to reopen the Capital Region for business. Each business has also been asked to develop and maintain a Safety Plan outlining the specific steps they are taking to ensure public health. This means that Albany is ready to welcome visitors again, and that visitors can be assured that the utmost care has been taken to ensure your health and well-being. We are so excited to see you!
