Say "I Do" in Schenectady

Effective on March 15, 2021, New York State will allow in-person events with up to 150 people, as long as all attendees get tested for COVID-19 beforehand. The guest count will be limited to 150 people or 50% of the reception venue’s capacity, whichever is smaller. Responsible Parties must notify their respective county health department or local public health authority if they plan to host in-person and catered events above the State’s maximum social gathering limit. A full list of rules and regulations can be found on the New York State Department of Health's Website

Schenectady County launched a new online form for vendors and event organizers who host catered events within the county. The form was created to help businesses comply with recent guidance released by the NYS Department of Health (DOH). Local health departments, including Schenectady County Public Health Services (SCPHS), are charged with overseeing compliance. To fulfill the state’s mandate, SCPHS will require vendors and event organizers to fill out a form for each catered event they host at least 5 days in advance of that event per state guidance. All submitted forms will be reviewed, and SCPHS will only contact vendors if they need clarification or identify a potential issue. The online form and additional information is available at www.schenectadycounty.com/COVID19.
