The team at the Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corporation has been doing all we can to stay on top of the current COVID-19 situation, especially as it relates to the small businesses that are so important to our downtown. We have been in regular contact with a consortium of other downtown organizations across New York State to share information and best practices that can benefit all of our districts, and we have remained in regular communication with the Schenectady Mayor’s office and other local officials.
While we all are adjusting to the temporary new normal of social distancing, please know that our small businesses are doing everything they can to follow their new restrictions while continuing to serve the community in a safe and sensible manner. We are compiling and sharing details on what many of our downtown business are offering to help you make choices on how to show your support.
