A coronavirus cluster has been found at the Albany County Department of Health.

County Executive Dan McCoy says four employees tested positive. The rest of the department is now being tested.

All Albany County Department of Health employees will now work remotely for two weeks.

"This is an example of our employees doing the right thing - wearing a mask, social distancing, frequently sanitizing their hands and still contracting the virus. I have said it hasn’t gone away and it can impact anyone," McCoy said in a statement.

Clinics are cancelled.
