Update from County Executive Molinaro

According to Governor Cuomo earlier today, NYS has now reached the 70% threshold of adults who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. With this announcement, “effective immediately, state-mandated COVID restrictions are lifted across commercial and social settings including: sports & recreation, construction, manufacturing, trade, child care, camps, food services, offices, real estate, buildings, agriculture, fishing, forestry, amusement & family, entertainment, personal care services, gyms, retail, malls and movie theaters.”   

Based on this announcement, social distancing, health screenings, capacity restriction, contact information for tracing, and added cleaning and disinfection protocols, is no longer required by New York State. The only exceptions where health guidelines continue to be in effect are large-scale indoor event venues, public transportation, nursing homes, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, pre-K to grade 12 schools and health care facilities.

There are no additional local restrictions that will be imposed by Dutchess County Government, including the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health. 

We thank you all for your diligence and hard work and look forward to returning to life as we once knew it. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us. We appreciate your partnership.

Village of Pawling
Limb and Branch Pickup
June 16, 2021
Village residents can place their storm related limbs and branches at the curb for municipal pick-up. Tree limbs and debris that are smaller than six inches in diameter can be cut into lengths of three feet or less and bundled. This process may take a few days to complete, and we appreciate your patience. This pickup is for debris caused by the recent storm. Please do not trim your trees at this time as village crews will not be responsible for picking them up.
