A message from Town Supervisor Michael J. Ferrara and the Seneca Falls Town Board

On behalf of the Seneca Falls Town Board and all of the Town's employees, we hope and pray that all of our town residents are safe and staying healthy!

Please follow Governor Cuomo's "Stay Home Order" unless you are considered an essential worker by your employer. Practice 'social distancing' whenever you are with other people. Continue to wash your hands whenever you come in contact with someone or touch non- sanitized surfaces.

Remember, grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations and other essential business will remain open. There is no need for panic and there is no need to hoard food items. Everyone should purchase groceries as you normally would do. Remember, wherever you are, practice social distancing and clean hands. Be sure to cough or sneeze into your elbow or Kleenex whenever possible. If you purchase gas, wear a pair of disposal gloves while you are pumping the gas and then throw the gloves away at the gas station.

The Governor's goal is to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus as much as possible or until Health Care Professionals are better able to reduce the spread. Remember, we do not have a clear understanding of how many people are actually infected. Many of us could be infected but show little or no symptoms.

Effective, Monday, March 23, the Town Offices will be closed to the public. All of our essential services like Police and Water/ Sewer services will not be interrupted. If you have an emergency, please call 911.

If you are able, please check on any of your neighbors to determine if they need assistance, especially the elderly ones!

Please be safe and healthy, together we will overcome this crisis.


SFPD COVID-19 Operational Protocol

As CIVID-19 continues to evolve, so does the required Seneca Falls PD response protocol. Effective immediately, all non-emergency incidents, depending on the nature, that require law enforcement involvement will be handled over the telephone in order to limit contact. On calls requiring law enforcement response, officers may ask you to step outside, in order to create the recommended six feet of social distancing. Understand that if you call E-911 for any reason, dispatchers have instituted new call screening protocols to help identify potential COVID-19 cases. For additional up to date information the New York State Department of Health has issued an informational document that offers guidelines to best address the recent Corona Virus outbreak. Included in this document are a list of resource guides to better prepare for this continued health emergency.

Please be patient with all of our first responders. These new response protocols are temporary and are in place to protect our first responders as well as the community we serve. Our goal is to ensure our staff remains healthy and available to provide the quality of service that our residents and visitors expect.
