from Mayor Paul Pontieri:
Emergency Services officials have advised me that there are confirmed coronavirus cases in the Incorporated Village of Patchogue and that a number of people have been quarantined.
The Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) prevents disclosure of the names and addresses without patient consent.
I am working closely with all levels of government and the medical community to do whatever I can to help bring the pandemic under control in our community.
I ask that everyone follow the recommendations set forth by health officials and avoid social gatherings and trips outside of your home unless absolutely necessary.
By following the guidelines, you can protect the health and safety of your family, friends and neighbors.
