So, the Mid-Hudson Region is scheduled to enter Phase 4 as of Tuesday, July 7. Phase 4 includes opening outdoor arts and entertainment to 33% percent capacity, and professional sports without fans. Other venues, such as amusement parks, bowling alleys and movie theaters remain closed.
Independence Day is Saturday, July 4. Due to COVID-19, the Cornwall Independence Day Committee has planned a modest celebration. You can see the schedule of activities, most of which are online, on the Village’s website under Latest News. You can email photos of children’s art, children and their pets, and patriotically decorated home to [email protected]. Check the committee’s website (www.cornwall4th.org) for details. For safety’s sake, barbecues and gatherings are limited to 25 people.
Village offices will be closed Friday, July 3, in honor of Independence Day. Village Hall doors will re-open Monday, July 6. New York State has required extensive safety plans to re-open and access will be limited. Please be patient as we implement these plans for your safety and the safety of village employees. The drop-box will continue to provide a convenient way to pay bills. You can contact us at 845-534-4200 and [email protected]. Our website is www.cornwall-on-hudson.org.
The first summer concert is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 7, at the Village Bandstand on the corner of Hudson Street and River Avenue. Please honor social distancing and wear a mask when you can’t.
Enjoy Independence Day and stay healthy!
