Local News

New York’s North Country has at least one new coronavirus case.

The Clinton County Health Department says it learned of the county’s fourth positive test result Sunday. The man is in his fifties and had direct contact with one of the county’s three previously-diagnosed patients. He’s in self-isolation at home.

Meanwhile, President Trump said he’ll use federal money to fund the New York National Guard, which was activated Sunday. Gov. Andrew Cuomo will maintain command of the Guard as it helps fight the spread of the virus, but FEMA will cover all of its costs.

As of 8 p.m. Sunday, all employees of non-essential businesses in New York are required to either work from home or not work at all.
