Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 at 12:00 p.m., the Town of Rotterdam declared a state of emergency related to the need to contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), which was declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020. This state of emergency was declared to preserve the public safety and hereby render all required and available assistance vital to the security, well-being, and health of the citizens of the town. This situation, combined with increased vulnerability and threat to our elderly residents and residents with an underlying health condition, continues to threaten the public safety. With increasing concerns expressed from our residents and businesses regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to provide you with some information and ensure you that the County of Schenectady and the Town of Rotterdam are closely monitoring this ongoing health crisis.

Since mid-March, town personnel have been doing everything possible to keep the Town moving forward, as all departments have continued to operate during the state of emergency. We have completed improvements, recommended by state and federal agencies, to increase the safety of all employees and the public. The town continues to rely upon federal and state guidance to maintain a healthy work environment that will allow the public to access our town buildings. These changes will help ensure the health and safety of employees and residents upon the buildings reopening.
