IMPORTANCE OF THE CENSUS
The 2020 Census will determine the Congressional representation, help determine how federal funding is allocated to communities, and provide data that will impact communities every year for the next decade.
UPDATE LEAVE: The US Census Bureau field staff have been delivering Census questionnaires to homes in Columbia County and expect to complete this task next week.
MOBILE QUESTIONNAIRE ASSISTANCE
The US Census Bureau has given the "greenlight" to make "Mobile Questionnaire Assistance" available upon request. This operation brings Census Response Representatives to the community to visit key locations or events - grocery stores, markets, houses of worship, libraries, community centers, and places where people naturally gather.
This year the Annual Historic Stuyvesant Day Picnic will be held at the Stuyvesant Playground. Due to social distancing, the 3 acres of land it provides, will allow all to attend safely.
As in the past, the Town will provide drinks, hot dogs, and hamburgers. We ask that the residents bring their own dish to share and share it within their own gathering. We will have picnic tables - a safe distance apart, but you may want to bring a blanket to sit on.
Our Town Hstorian Juanita Knott is writing a timeline about the COVID-19 virus. Juanta has gathered stories, newspaper clippings, etc. and we plan to have a copy for any resident attending the picnic.

HUDSON -- “The Columbia County Board of Supervisors and county personnel are taking all precautions in the fight against the coronavirus, or COVID-19. This includes protecting our residents to the extent possible and making plans for the county to continue carrying out its business in the event a major outbreak occurs here,” Board of Supervisors Chairman Matt Murell said today.
The county is monitoring the situation and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), NYS departments of Health and Education, and the Columbia County Department of Health.
At the county Department of Health, Public Health Director Jack Mabb called COVID-19 an “incredibly fluid situation. The CDC is screening people as they come into the country if they have a fever, or if they have a travel history” involving one of the countries with people who have been infected.
If a county resident tests positive in that situation, or if they have traveled to a country with people who have tested positive, county DoH is notified. Its job is to then make sure that the resident is able to effectively self-quarantine.
