Saratoga County announces potential virus exposure at Clifton Park restaurant

CLIFTON PARK — Saratoga County health officials say an employee at Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse in Clifton Park has tested positive for COVID-19, and may have exposed others.

The exposure would have been low risk, they said, noting that the employee wore a mask at all times.

The potential exposures occurred Wednesday, July 1 from 3 to 9 p.m. and Friday, July 3 from 2 to 8:30 p.m.

Anyone who visited the restaurant on those dates is asked to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and get a diagnostic test if need be.

Albany County last week temporarily shuttered two restaurants, including the Delmonico’s on Central Avenue, after employees tested positive. The state Department of Health was brought in to conduct on-site testing of other employees. A total of 15 employees at those restaurants have come back positive for COVID-19.

Also Wednesday,Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy noted that there have been no deaths in the county due to COVID-19 in two weeks.

” (T)his really is something we should all be proud of,” he wrote Wednesday. “Every death is tragedy, period. The sacrifices Albany County residents and businesses are making are paying off and I want to thank each and every one of them for doing the right thing. But the coronavirus isn’t done with us yet. The only way we will be able to continue saving lives and continue the reopening process is by staying the course, wearing masks, socially distancing ourselves and getting tested.”

The county had just two more confirmed positive cases. There are now 281 people under mandatory quarantine. There are two people hospitalized

Schenectady County meanwhile had only one new positive case and there are three hospitalizations.
