A recent spike in COVID-19 cases puts Ulster County at over 100 active cases for the first time since May 24.
Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan said that as a result, he is re-activating Ulster County’s Emergency Operation Center to evaluate next steps.
“While we have made great strides in fighting this virus, we are not out of the woods yet, and the delta variant poses a real threat to our ability to fully recover from the pandemic. The science is clear, the new variant is spreading at an alarming rate, and it is overwhelmingly impacting those who have yet to be vaccinated. We are all in this together, and I am asking everyone who has yet to receive the vaccine to do so for their neighbors, their family, and themselves,” said Ryan.
