Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents May 1, 2020

Seal - gold and blue

New York State now has 308,314 positive cases. The total number tested in Westchester is 94,442 more than 9% of the population in the county; the number of people who have tested positive in the county is 29,232. The county currently estimates the number of active cases in the county to be 6756. The cumulative number of people who have tested positive in White Plains since testing began is 1355. Using the county formula active cases among those who were tested are estimated to be 387. This is just an estimate and does not account for people who have not been tested and is subject to the lag between county and local numbers.


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 are having food related issues. City sponsored distributions will be taking place Monday at Eastview and Church Street schools as well as the Slater Center. Tomorrow White Plains Hospital will hold a food distribution at 33 Davis Avenue. Please see our website for more details.

As a reminder, individuals with symptoms of COVID-19 which include fever, cough and congestion can walk in to be tested at White Plains Hospital Emergency Department.

We each have a responsibility to try to keep ourselves and those around us safe. We have a nice stretch of weather ahead and we would all like to get outside and enjoy it, but maintain your focus. If you are outside under circumstances where you are likely to pass within 6 feet of another person, wear a mask. Every day science understands this virus better, every day we are closer to a treatment, every day we are closer to a vaccine. Each day that we can delay someone getting sick, including ourselves, we are all better off. Working together we helped prevent our healthcare system from collapsing. But our work is not done. Stay with it, WP! Our next call is scheduled for Monday until then,

Remember we are standing together by staying apart!

El número total de examinadas en Westchester es de 94,442 más del 9% de la población en el condado; El número de personas que dieron positivo en el condado es de 29,232. Actualmente, el condado estima que el número de casos activos es de 6,756. El número acumulado de personas que han dado positivo en White Plains desde que comenzó la prueba es 1.355.

Esto es solo una estimación y no tiene en cuenta a las personas que no han sido evaluadas y como sabemos HAY retraso entre los números del condado y locales.

 

Por favor interesese en sus vecinos y averigue si  no pueden ir a la tienda a buscar comida y si puede ofrescale ayuda. Comuníquese con: feedingwp@whiteplainsny.gov si tiene escaces de alimentos. Las distribuciones patrocinadas por la ciudad se llevarán a cabo el lunes en las escuelas Eastview y Church Street, así como en el Slater Center. Y Mañana el hospital de White Plains llevará a cabo una distribución de alimentos en 33 Davis Avenue. Por favor, consulte nuestro sitio web para más detalles.

 Como recordatorio, las personas con síntomas de COVID-19 que incluyen fiebre, tos y congestión pueden ir al Departamento de Emergencia del Hospital White Plains para hacerse una prueba. 

Cada uno de nosotros tiene la responsabilidad de tratar de mantenernos seguros a nosotros mismos y a quienes nos rodean. Se viene el buen clima y a todos nos gustaría salir y disfrutarlo, pero aun debemos mantenernos enfocados. Si está afuera y no puede mantener una distancia de al menos  6 pies de otra persona, use una máscara. Todos los días la ciencia entiende mejor este virus, cada día estamos más cerca de un tratamiento, todos los días estamos más cerca de una vacuna. Cada día que podemos retrasar que alguien se enferme, incluyéndonos a nosotros, estamos mejor. Trabajando juntos ayudamos a evitar que nuestro sistema de salud se derrumbe. Pero nuestro trabajo no está terminado. ¡Quédate en casa, WP! Nuestra próxima llamada está programada para el lunes hasta entonces, y recuerde estamos mas cerca al mantenernos mas separados.
