Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents April 12, 2020

Seal - gold and blue


New York state now has almost 189,000 cases.  The total number tested in the County is over 58,000; the number of people who have tested positive in Westchester increased by about 600 since yesterday to over 19,300.  We did not receive an updated number on White Plains specific numbers today. 

If you have recovered from the coronavirus, you are encouraged to donate your plasma. Please see the NY blood center’s website at: to fill out the donor request form. The demand is high and you may save a life.

There is a storm coming. The National Weather Service has issued a high wind watch that will remain in effect from early Monday morning through the afternoon.  Wind gusts of up to 70mph are possible. Widespread power outages are possible. Con Ed has indicated they are closely monitoring the storm and have a full complement of company and contractor crews ready to respond.  If you see a downed power line call  Con Ed at 1-800-75- coned (1-800-752-6633) or 911. Power outages should be reported directly to Con Ed.  Please do not presume someone else has reported the condition.

The City of White Plains encourages you to check the City’s website,, facebook and twitter pages for updated information. You may also want to add your mobile phone number and email address to our WhitePlainsAlerts Community Notification System to ensure that you receive important communications from the City no matter where you are and even if service to your land line is down.
