The chairman of the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors says a new indoor mask mandate put in place by Governor Hochul won't be enforced in the county.

The chairman said the Public Health Department and law enforcement won't be responsible for making sure residents and businesses follow the new rule which he believes is misguided and unrealistic. The county also won't enforce a provision that prevents school children from taking mask breaks. Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin also said last week the mandate won't be enforced there.
