““We cannot stress enough the importance of keeping your social circles small at this time,” said Public Health Director, Darlene Smith. “We already have portions of Steuben County in the yellow zone and do not want to increase the color or size of the cluster areas or put more lives at risk. Do not participate in gatherings that exceed the limits. Protect yourself and your loved ones by being thoughtful when it comes to prevention strategies.”
