Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents March 28, 2020

Seal - gold and blue

Today Governor Cuomo announced that the New York State Presidential primary that had been scheduled for April 28th is now delayed until June 23rd and will be held in conjunction with the congressional and legislative primary elections.

The numbers released by NY State today indicate Westchester County now has 7875 cases of which 688 are new. There are 52,318 positive cases in NY State; 127 are White Plains residents. The total number of people tested in Westchester County is over 31,000.

It’s hard to believe that just a couple of months ago, one of the biggest issues facing communities was the Census. You know how important the Census is: it will determine congressional representation, help determine how hundreds of billions in federal funding are distributed each year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade.

As we recover from COVID-19, the Census will likely be even more important for determining federal aid.

By now, everyone should have received in the mail an invitation to go online and participate in the Census. This mailing includes your unique Census ID number.

Please take a few minutes and go online with a computer or telephone and complete the census.

If you need help completing the Census, or have questions, call the White Plains Public Library, Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm at 914-448-4859. The librarians are trained to assist you.

If you need help in Spanish, call El Centro Hispano during the same hours, 914-289-0500.

And tell your friends and neighbors.

Remember we are standing together by staying apart.

If you are experiencing symptoms associated with coronavirus, please call either the White Plains Hospital Hotline at (914) 681-2900 or the NYS Dept of Health Hotline at 1-888-364-3065. Professional staff will screen you over the phone by asking you a series of questions and assess your need for testing
