Additionally, the amendments prevent municipalities from relevying previously accrued water charges on or after May 11, 2021 until either the end of the COVID-19 state of emergency, which is December 22, 2021.
All water suppliers must notify residential and small business customers of the protections afforded under the law.

Putnam County Executive
January 11, 2021
The Putnam County Department of Health is preparing to expand COVID-19 vaccination distribution to those aged 75 and older, first responders, teachers and other essential workers who live and/or work in the county, as the state institutes Phase 1B of its vaccination program, Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell said.
“This is a good step forward,” said Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell. “The rollout will still be slow because the supply is so very limited. We are hopeful that vaccine production will ramp up and that the supply will increase to meet the demand.”
Vaccinations are by appointment only.
To sign up, start by seeing if you are eligible:
If you are, you will be given a list of local places where you can get a vaccination.
Those eligible can also call the State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline for an appointment: 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).
Prior to receiving the vaccination, you must complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form. This form can be completed online at https://forms.ny.gov/s3/vaccine you will receive a submission ID.
Do not show up to a vaccination site without an appointment. You will not be given a vaccine.
For information about eligibility, phased distribution and more, visit https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/what-you-need-know.
On Monday, Jan. 11, the Putnam County Department of Health ran its second Phase 1A vaccination point of dispensing, or POD, at Carmel Friendship Center on Old Route 6 for healthcare workers and those who live or work in nursing homes or group homes only. The health department has administered 600 doses of the Moderna vaccine, all it has received so far. The department expects another 300 doses this week.
Other agencies, including hospitals, urgent cares, health centers and pharmacies, will also be vaccinating people. Because of the limited supplies, it is expected to take until mid-April to vaccinate all the New York State residents in the approved 1A and 1B groups.
