WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It was another busy week here in the north country with COVID-19 still at the forefront.
“We’re all just taking a beating. I don’t know how we’re going to stay afloat. We’re treading water now," said Robert Dalton, owner of the Paddock Club.
St. Lawrence County declared a State of Emergency due to COVID-19.
And a long list of north country schools opted to close their doors.
“We know when we make the decision to go all-remote, we’re immediately putting a great deal of pressure on our families and our community, but we have to look at the health and safety overall," said Massena School Superintendent Patrick Brady.
More exposure notices were released. Some to note:
In Jefferson County, the American Eagle store at Salmon Run Mall.
In Lewis County, Buckingham Hardware, Lloyds of Lowville, McDonald’s, and the Town Talk Diner.
And in Watertown, two workers at long term care facilities tested positive. One at Samaritan Summit Village, and the other at Samaritan Keep Home.
