Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents, August 10, 2020

Seal - gold and blue

There was a major water main break downtown at South Lexington and Martine Avenues this afternoon that affected water pressure throughout the City. DPW has now isolated the break and water service is being restored. The water may appear discolored at first. It is safe to drink.


The most recent data provided by the county today indicates the cumulative number of people who have tested positive in White Plains since testing began is 1, 897. The county estimates the number of active cases in White Plains to be 23.


Approximately, 317 customers are still without power in White Plains. All streets in the City have now been reopened. We continue to be in close contact with Con Ed in order to accelerate the restoration process, which has been completely unacceptable thus far. The city has done everything it can to facilitate restoration of power but of course power restoration can only be done by Con Ed.


The City has opened a cooling center for White Plains residents at the Community Center located at 65 Mitchell Place. The cooling center will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.


If you are without power and need to charge a device, the Library has charging tables set up outside the front entrance that are first-come, first served. These will be available to 7:00 p.m. tonight and all week until power is fully restored.


Our next call is Monday, August 17th.   Until then remember, we are standing together by staying apart.

Esta tarde se rompió la tubería principal de agua en el centro de las avenidas South Lexington y Martine que afectó la presión del agua en toda la ciudad. El departamento de obras públicas ha identificado la ruptura y se está restaurando para restablecer el servicio de agua. Al principio el agua saldrá oscura pero es seguro beberla.


Los datos más recientes proporcionados por el condado hoy indican que el número de personas que han dado resultados positivos en White Plains desde que comenzaron las pruebas es de 1, 897. El condado estima que el número de casos activos en White Plains es de 23 personas.


Aproximadamente 317 clientes siguen sin electricidad en White Plains. Ahora se han reabierto todas las calles de la ciudad. Seguimos en contacto con Con Ed para acelerar el proceso de restauración, que hasta ahora ha sido completamente inaceptable. La ciudad ha hecho todo lo posible para facilitar la restauración de energía, pero, por supuesto, solo Con Ed puede hacer que las personas vuelvan a tener electricidad.


La Ciudad ha abierto un centro donde hay aire acondicionado para los residentes de White Plains en el Centro Comunitario ubicado en 65 Mitchell Place. Este centro estará abierto los martes y miércoles de 10:00 am a 7:00 pm. Si no tiene energía y necesita un lugar para refrescarse, le recomendamos que venga a este centro. No es necesario hacer una reservación pero tenga en cuenta que el espacio es limitado según las pautas de COVID y se espera que usted use una mascarilla. El personal tomará la temperatura de cada persona a su llegada. Se le pedirá que complete un formulario de evaluación de salud y proporcione su información de contacto.


Si no tiene energía y necesita cargar un dispositivo electrónico, la biblioteca tiene mesas instaladas fuera de la entrada principal en donde puede cargar su dispositivo. Estos se asignarán por orden de llegada. Estarán disponibles a partir de las 7:00 p.m. esta noche y toda la semana hasta que se restaure completamente la energía eléctrica.


Nuestra próxima llamada es el lunes 17 de agosto. Hasta entonces y recuerde, estamos más juntos manteniéndonos más separados.
