The February Lake George Winter Carnival, which has taken place for the last 59 years, has been canceled according to an announcement by Carnival Co-Chairs Louis Tokos and Nancy Nichols. They cite the ongoing pandemic which has already killed nearly 270,000 Americans and is killing more than 1,400 each day in the U.S. About 90,000 people were in the hospital as of Tuesday and many medical facilities have been pushed to their capacity limits.
Warren County Public Health announced nine new cases among county residents on Tuesday, a seven-day rolling infection rate of 1.4% for the county. Thirty-five people have died in Warren County so far. “The mandated guidelines of COVID-19 have caused this ongoing issue,” Tokos and Nichols claimed. “Our concern is for our Winter Carnival volunteer members and visitors who attend this large event to be safe.” [Read more…] about Lake George Winter Carnival Cancelled
