We would like to remind everyone of the Take 5 for New York campaign that was launched on April 1 to encourage Allegany County residents to take five minutes out of each day to call a friend, loved one, or acquaintance who may be alone and feeling isolated during this period of social distancing. This is a very difficult time for many people and we urge you to connect with people in your community who could use it the most.
