Covid-19 Testing Available in Long Lake, NY May 22

Adirondack Health’s mobile testing clinic will be in the following locations:

Friday, May 29 – 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. – Long Lake Central School, 20 School Rd., Long Lake, NY 12847

To schedule an appointment, please contact your primary care provider or the COVID-19 clinic at 518-897-2462. There is no direct cost to the individual being tested, but Adirondack Health will collect health insurance information and bill insurance companies.

Testing is open to everyone, symptomatic or asymptomatic, regardless of employment status or category. A doctor’s order is suggested, but not required. Every COVID-19 test will entail a nasopharyngeal (sinus) swab, with the option to also have blood drawn to check for the presence of the COVID-19 antibody.

MASKS
The Town of Long Lake is collecting homemade masks from volunteers willing to donate to our community members in Long Lake & Raquette Lake needing face coverings. 

Anyone wishing to donate masks are asked to drop them off at the Long Lake Town Hall, 1204 Main Street, front door, located at the front entrance of the building or mail them to:

Town of Long Lake PRT
PO Box 496, Long Lake, NY 12847
Look for the box at the Long Lake Town Hall or the Raquette Lake Post Office
Masks are distributed on the honor system. Residents of are invited to pick up the masks, max of 2 per person. Like fruits and vegetables, if you touch it, then you keep it. 


Kat Forsell will be coordinating the project in Raquette Lake and a box for mask drop off and pick up will be available at the RL Post Office.
We want to thank our community volunteers for helping us with this brand new program. We cannot guarantee masks availability.

If someone is in the foyer picking up their masks, do NOT enter until person exits as it is a cramped space. Please adhere to safe social distancing.

Update 

We understand that not everyone is on-line so for those that aren’t regulars on Facebook, we know there is a need to get information to our most vulnerable citizens. Our Parks & Recreation department does make frequent phone calls to our seniors and we also work closely with our local meal site to hand deliver important informational flyers to our residents.

If there is a community wide emergency, we do have an automated telephone system on standby, ready to go, with our Long Lake & Raquette Lake residents and property owner contact information.  

If you are a new resident or recently changed your phone number from a landline to a cell or you’d like to include additional contact number, lease sign up using our form below.  (scroll down!)

This is a work in progress so we know there may be duplication of emails, phone calls etc.  Please bear with us, we are doing the best we can and we do appreciate your feedback, and email it to longlake@mylonglake.com  

Check on your neighbors, be well, stay safe.  

Thank you to our community members handily crafting masks which are currently available at the Long Lake Town Hall & Raquette Lake Post Office for free.

PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDANCE TO SEASONAL RESIDENTS AND RENTAL PROPERTY OWNERS
APRIL 20, 2020

Hamilton County would like to provide some guidance as we prepare to welcome our second home owners back to the Adirondacks. In order to maintain the safety of the public we request that you consider the following information. 

Second Home Owners and Snowbirds
• After you arrive, we strongly encourage you to stay at your home/on your own property for 2 weeks. We understand that during your travels you will be in contact with numerous individuals when stopping for gasoline, food, and to rest. This includes post offices, grocery stores, convenience stores, hardware stores, liquor stores, and other essential businesses. 
• We do encourage you to use delivery options that many of our local businesses have in place. 
• Bring supplies with you that will last you at least two weeks. Our local grocery and convenience stores are able to meet the demands of our current residents; however, a large influx of people will only limit the supplies available for all. 
• Be hypersensitive to the fact that we have limited access to healthcare. Our local health centers are limiting visits and utilizing telehealth services to provide care to patients. We do not have a pharmacy in the county, and recommend setting up pharmacy delivery services. 

Short/Long Term Rental Owners 
• We discourage short term rentals including nightly and weekend rentals. We prefer that if you are renting out your facilities, please consider multi week or monthly rentals. We are sensitive to the fact that these renters stimulate our economy and provide financial stability for our residents. 
• Long term renters should be advised that social distancing rules still apply. Gatherings greater than 10 people for any reason including vacations, parties and celebrations are prohibited at this time. 
• It would be beneficial to supply your rentals with masks, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes to promote good behavior.

Please remember to follow public health safety precautions including social distancing, compliance with wearing a face covering when in public, good handwashing and sanitizing commonly touched surfaces. Hamilton County statistics have been low, only 2 positive cases of COVID with no outbreaks of exposure, and we are all working hard to ensure the numbers stay positive. 

Remember it won’t be like this forever! But for now, it is important to be considerate and follow these public health initiatives to slow, and eventually stop the spread of the Coronavirus.

2019 Jan 19-21 Winter Storm Prep Long Lake & Raquette Lake Info

Friday, January 18, 2019
From Long Lake Town Supervisor Clark J. Seaman

Long Lake and Raquette Lake residents, considering the winter storm forecast for this weekend, I want to share some information with you.

Yesterday our neighboring supervisors and I met with representatives from NYSEG to continue discussions regarding the power outages (more on that at a later date). At that meeting they assured us that they have crews on standby this weekend to respond as quickly as possible to any power outages.

Today Chip Farr and I participated in a conference call with NY state officials from various agencies to discuss preparations for this weekend. Forecasts, for what they are worth, are predicting several inches to two feet of snow starting Saturday night into Sunday followed by a wintery mix of sleet and rain and possible high winds. Temperatures are expected to drop, and we could experience flash freezing.

Our local road crews will be working to keep our roads clear and safe as they always do, and throughout this storm Chip and I will be in touch with NYSEG, state and county officials, as necessary.

Given these conditions, we could experience power outages. Should that happen and they are extensive, we will open the Town Hall in Long Lake and the school in Raquette Lake for people to go and stay warm. If you need a ride, call my home phone 518-624-3894 or my cell 518-514-1147 and we’ll make arrangements for transportation.

The important thing is that everyone stays safe. Don’t travel unless absolutely necessary, check on your neighbors and call if you need help.

Finally, please share this with your friends and family that might not see it on social media.

Clark J. Seaman
Long Lake Town Supervisor

Long Lake will be hosting Winter Carnival on Saturday, January 19th at Mt. Sabattis starting at Noon.  This event will go on as scheduled.

Epik Rex Welcomes the First Day of Spring

Epik Rex loves to spend time in Long Lake.  He was out on the first day of spring, which was definitely more wintry than springy.  Epik was found at Hoss’s Country Campground riding around on a 4-Wheeler provided by Heckman’s Engines.  Epik was determined to have a good time and he did, but he got stuck behind the Long Lake Town Offices near the Buttercup Steamboat.  But he wasn’t sad for long once he spots two nice children who were waving to him.  He made his way home back to his hiding spot at the end of the day.  

Welcome Spring to Long Lake NY.

Happenings around town!  

Stewart’s Shops is expanding in Long Lake, NY!  The store is under construction and it remains OPEN!  But look for more room in the aisles, renovated shopping space and an additional restroom too.  

Even though it’s spring, the snowmobile trails are still open and in great condition so riders are encouraged to trailer to their favorite spot.  The Newcomb Trail and the Kickerville Road to C7B towards Tupper Trail is wide, flat and groomed. Great riding.  Lake Eaton is also great.  Trails in Raquette Lake are great too.  Some plowing on Uncas, but there are some great flat spots.  Check out the Bug Lake Trail and the Dump Road Too.
