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.

In response to increased rates of COVID-19 transmission in certain states within the United States, and to protect New York State 's successful containment of COVID-19, the State has joined with New Jersey and Connecticut in jointly issuing a travel advisory for anyone returning from travel to states that have a significant degree of community-wide spread of COVID-19. For more information on the travel advisory visit coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory.
