NEW YORK STATE OFFICE FOR THE AGING ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEW ONLINE TOOL TO HELP OLDER NEW YORKERS AND OTHER HIGH-RISK INDIVIDUALS PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM COVID-19
The New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA), in partnership with BellAge, Inc., and the Association on Aging in New York (AgingNY) has announced the launch of CV19 CheckUp in New York State, a free, anonymous, personalized online tool that evaluates an individual’s risks associated with COVID-19 based on their life situation and individual behavior and provides recommendations and resources to reduce those risks.
Based on an individual’s behavior, the COVID-19 tool provides an analysis of the likelihood to contract, spread, be hospitalized and die from the virus.
The Columbia County Office for the Aging is seeking volunteers for the Meals-on-Wheels Program. Drivers are needed for Hudson area, Greenport, Stockport, Claverack, Kinderhook, Niverville and Valatie. Some of these Towns will pay mileage reimbursement. This is an opportunity to “Care for those who cared for us”. If interested in helping out, please call the Philmont Kitchen at 518-672-5323 and ask for either Amy or Lisa.
We have recently installed high efficiency air filters in the Town Hall HVAC Systems to safeguard employees and residents who would like to visit us and vote in-person on Election Day.
In light of the current COVID-19 epidemic, directives from the Governor's Office, and out of an abundance of caution for employees and residents, the Town Hall will be closed to public access until further notice. Please call ahead of coming to the Office to make sure staff is available or if your business can be handled over the phone or by email. Phone numbers, extensions, and email addresses have been provided below. This policy will be in place until further notice.
The Highway Department will be going to 4 days per week beginning on Monday, March 23rd but will remain on call for emergencies. The phone number for the Highway Department is 518-758-6843.
Our Town Courts have been canceled by the NYS Office of Court Administration for the next 45 days.
