Monroe County Officially Declared “Orange Zone”

November 24, 2020

Certain parts of Monroe County have officially been designated as an “orange zone” by the powers that be in Albany.

Parts of Rochester, Brighton, Gates, Greece, Irondequoit and Pittsford are now officially subject to restrictions and regulations close to what they were back in March.

The regulations include schools ending in class sessions, a ban on indoor dining and bar service, while high-risk businesses such as gyms and nail salons need to close.  Worship services are limited to 33% capacity, with a maximum of 25 people.

These rules go into effect Wednesday, except for schools, which are starting on Thanksgiving.

Rochester Chamber of Commerce President Robert Duffy says that schools might be able to reopen on Monday, but the restrictions on businesses and gatherings will be in effect for two weeks.
