Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents April 4, 2020

Seal - gold and blue

New York state now has close to 114,000 cases; there are 730 new cases in Westchester for a current total of 13,081 out of over 42,000 people tested in the county. The municipality specific data we received from the county today indicates 324 positive cases in White Plains. As we have noted these local numbers do not accurately reflect the actually count in a municipality on the day they are received. We share them because they are the best data we have been given.

The Center for Disease Control Is now recommending that a face covering be worn when you are in situations when you will be in contact with others. It is important to remember that social distancing is still the primary means of preventing transmission and should be maintained even if wearing a face covering. To learn more about this and other corona virus information please see CDC.gov.


Thank you to all who participated in the #wpshoutout to essential employees last night the response was tremendous. I can tell you it was well appreciated by the staff at White Plains Hospital and Empress Ambulance with whom I spoke. And it was great to be outside and see and hear our neighbors and to feel we’re all still here, we’re in this together, and we are all doing our part to flatten the curve. We are working on another one, keep an eye out on the city’s social media sites for our next clap for essential workers.


It’s hard to believe that the first case in NY was only about a month ago. Our world has changed so dramatically in such a short period of time in ways that we could not have imagined. And I know it’s not easy. But we are starting to see signs that all of our efforts are having an impact. And the cooperation we have seen in our city by all of you and the spirit with which you have met these challenges is inspiring. And when this is all over, and it will be over, we will be able to look back and say that together, as a community, we saved lives.


Lastly, we have gotten a great response from our request for volunteers. Thank you for those who have emailed. If you, too, would like to help in the community, please email: volunteer@whiteplainsny.gov.


Remember we are standing together by staying apart
