Town of Wellsville Emergency Management update

In response to the Governor making plans to start reopening New York State back up after the Covid-19 pandemic, we are also planning to accommodate this within the Town of Wellsville in the coming weeks. This is a planned reopening of businesses and activities with guidelines that must be followed; failure to adhere to these could result in subsequent  renewed closures. We will be on a planned schedule with other counties in our region, specifically the Southern Tier. As long as positive cases do not dramatically increase with the reopening then we should be allowed to proceed with the scheduled phases that have been set forth by the Governor and his office. With warmer weather in the forecast it is certain that the citizens will want to be out and we encourage you to do so, it has been a long time coming. Positive cases in Allegany County have been near steady recently with no major influx in those numbers; that means the residents are doing their part and we thank you for that. We ask that in the coming weeks, you still maintain social distancing and continue to wear your face masks as they are required while out in public. The emergency management team is working with town officials to develop a plan on opening the parks and other common areas…when this is done, there will be an announcement. Please continue to check on your neighbors through all of this as we do not know exactly when this pandemic will be over. If you are experiencing problems or need assistance for help do not hesitate to reach out.
