Another Capital Region County Won’t Enforce 10 Person Limit
As the coronavirus cases start to ramp up again and Thanksgiving is approaching, Governor Andrew Cuomo has put a cap on Thanksgiving gatherings. He wants local police to enforce a ten-person limit for Thanksgiving this year. But another Capital Region county says they won't go door to door. Thanksgiving is an important time, any year, for families to gather and give thanks but with the coronavirus, it's just not safe to have a ton of family over for the holiday. Governor Cuomo put a cap on how many people are allowed in people's homes for Thanksgiving and he wants local law enforcement to make sure it's limited to ten people.
According to CBS 6 Albany, Saratoga County is joining in with Fulton County officials saying that they do not have the manpower or the heart to check on residents to see that they are following the executive order of the governor.
Sheriff Michael Zurlo said this about the crack-down:
"I can't see how devoting our resources to counting cars in citizens' driveways or investigating how much turkey and dressing they've purchased is for the public good."
Sheriff Zurlo did go on to say that he hopes everyone continues to act responsibly by wearing masks, social distancing, and not being around others or out in public if you test positive for COVID.
He also said that all the men and women at the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas.
