Saratoga Springs COVID-19 Critical Preparedness Update

Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – Saratoga Springs Mayor Meg Kelly and Commissioner of Public Safety Robin Dalton will host a press conference on the steps of City Hall, 474 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, at 11 A.M. on Tuesday, March 31.  It will also be viewable on the City Facebook Page via Facebook Live.

Saratoga Springs Fire Department Chief Joe Dolan, Saratoga Springs Police Department Chief Shane Crooks and Saratoga Hospital President Angelo Calbone will join Mayor Kelly and Commissioner Dalton to discuss the City’s response to violations of restrictions put in place to fight COVID-19 at this critical hour of readiness for our city.

From Governor Cuomo:

The fight against Coronavirus is a war. On the frontline of this battle is the healthcare system. The fight will take place in hospitals across New York City, across the state and across this nation. So our strategy is clear: don’t let the hospital system get overwhelmed.

We have developed a statewide public-private hospital plan to fight COVID-19. It’s unfair for some hospitals to bear the brunt of this pandemic while other hospitals are less impacted. I’m glad that public and private hospitals across the state have agreed to implement a new balanced approach to fighting the virus where hospitals that are beginning to reach or exceed capacity can transfer patients to other hospitals that are not as full. Hospitals across the state have also agreed to share staff and supplies. This is necessary to save lives and keep our healthcare system functional. 

New York needs relief for our nurses and doctorsI’m asking healthcare workers across the country to come and help New York if they are able. We will return the favor in your hour of need.
