As a reminder, Governor Cuomo has ordered a state-wide shutdown of all non-essential businesses. Everyone else should stay home, for their own health and the health of others.

There are simple steps we can all take to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses.

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, like your cell phone.

For up-to-date information regarding the coronavirus/COVID-19, please visit the dedicated NYS and CDC websites.

Further updates about closures and cancellations at the Catskill Mountain Foundation will be posted regularly on this page.

Yours sincerely,
The Catskill Mountain Foundation
