More Ulster County Employees Will Work Remotely As COVID Cases Rise

Nov 20, 2020

Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan announced that access to county buildings will be limited and more staffing will be remote as COVID-19 cases escalate.

Starting Monday, access to Ulster County government buildings will be significantly limited, with the Department of Motor Vehicles moving to by-appointment service only. And Ulster County’s in-person workforce will be limited to essential staff plus 25 percent additional support staff until January 1. Also beginning November 23, Kingston Mayor Steve Noble says the city is reinstating a number of protocols and procedures, including closing all city offices to the public, except by appointment; having the Building Safety Division suspend routine inspections; and suspending all Parks and Recreation public programming.
