Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents April 15, 2020

Seal - gold and blue

Dear Residents:

Today’s Update:  4/15/2020

New York state now has close to 214,000 positive cases.  The total number tested in the County is 62,626; the number of people who have tested positive in Westchester is 20,947. There are currently 1,168 Westchester residents who are hospitalized in the County. The number of people who have tested positive and reside at addresses within the City of White Plains is 798.

 White Plains is a community of neighborhoods. Please check in on your neighbors who might not be able to go to the store to get food and help if you can. Please reach out to: feedingwp@whiteplainsny.gov if you can afford food but are homebound and can’t arrange delivery or, if you are having difficulty affording food we can put you in touch with the many ongoing food distributions taking place throughout the city.

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

Tomorrow night and on Thursdays at 7pm going forward, we will be clapping for essential workers.  Let them know that we appreciate them, WP! Let the bells chime!

Going forward, our scheduled “update” robo calls will take place on Monday, Wednesdays, and Friday.  We will make additional calls when circumstances warrant.

The data continues to suggest that we have reached a plateau in terms of new cases of Covid19. This should serve as an incentive to recommit to the social distancing protocols which have brought us here not let up. That is why we now require that face coverings be worn by employees and patrons in businesses throughout the city. Human nature causes us to ease up when nearing the top of hill when running or climbing. Cross country coaches will tell you “run over the top of the hill”. Push harder. That’s what we need to do.

Remember we are standing together by staying apart!
