Canandaigua, NY – May 19, 2021    County Administrator Christopher DeBolt today announced that the county is adopting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and New York State’s most recent guidance on face coverings and social distancing. Beginning today, May 19, fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear face masks or practice social distancing while visiting county facilities.  


“The new face-covering guidelines from the CDC and New York State are a clear sign that we have made significant progress in our fight against COVID-19 and that we have taken a large step toward returning to normal, said DeBolt. “We are asking Individuals not fully vaccinated and those with suppressed immune systems to continue wearing masks and practicing social distancing,” said DeBolt.
