Novel Corona (COVID-19) Update for Residents, August 24th, 2020

Seal - gold and blue

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 1,915. The county estimates the number of active cases in White Plains to be 19.


The State is allowing gyms and fitness centers to reopen as of today. Reduced capacity, masks, air filtration system requirements, contact tracing (sign in/sign out), and screening procedures are all part of the State’s reopening guidance. Gyms must be inspected by the County Health Department either prior to reopening or within 2 weeks of reopening. At the County Health Department’s  request our building inspectors will be working with them to ensure the inspections are complete and performed in a timely fashion. Fitness business owners or managers should contact the County Health Department to schedule an inspection.


Last week, the State also announced that it would allow indoor malls to reopen their food court seating areas, with social distancing requirements. The food courts at both the Galleria and The Westchester Malls have now reopened. 


New York State continues to have one of the lowest infection rates in the country. However, the virus is still present in our area. We have had excellent compliance with mask and social distancing requirements in White Plains and we have all benefited from that. All of our efforts as a community have been and will continue to be focused on keeping people healthy until a vaccine becomes available that will protect us all. It is vital that we don’t let down our guard now! The data continues to point to the benefits of wearing masks. Wear your mask!


Please be aware there are several important road closures or restrictions in effect beginning today as a result of various water main and sewer projects. These include:

  • Restricted lanes on Longview Avenue between Maple Avenue and Post Road.
  • Lanes closed to through traffic on Main Street at Lexington Avenue and at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. and Martine Avenue.
  • Periodic lane closures on Old Orchard Street.
  • Periodic lane closures on South Lexington from Quarropas Street to Dennison Street.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to maintain critical city infrastructure.


Our next call is Monday, August 31st.  Until then remember, we are standing together by staying apart.

Los datos más recientes proporcionados por el condado hoy indican que el número total de personas que han dado positivo en White Plains desde que comenzaron las pruebas es de 1,915. El condado estima que el número de casos activos en White Plains es de 19.
A partir de hoy,  el estado está permitiendo la reapertura de gimnasios y centros de ejercicios. El uso de establecimiento a capacidad limitada, el uso de mascarillas,  el seguir los requisitos del sistema de filtración de aire, el rastreo de contactos (iniciar sesión / cerrar sesión) y los procedimientos de detección son todos parte de la guía de reapertura del estado. Los gimnasios deben ser inspeccionados por el Departamento de Salud del Condado antes de la reapertura o dentro de las 2 semanas posteriores a la reapertura. A solicitud del Departamento de Salud del Condado, nuestros inspectores del departamento de construcción trabajarán con ellos para garantizar que las inspecciones se lleven a cabo de manera oportuna. Los dueños o gerentes de negocios de acondicionamiento físico deben comunicarse con el Departamento de Salud del Condado para programar una inspección.
La semana pasada, el Estado también anunció que permitiría que los centros comerciales reabrieran el patio de comidas con sus respectivas áreas de sillas y mezas, con requisitos de distanciamiento social. Por lo tanto, los patios de comida tanto en la Galleria como en el Westchester Mall ya han reabierto.
El estado de Nueva York sigue teniendo una de las tasas de infección más bajas del país. Sin embargo, el virus todavía está presente en nuestra área. Hemos tenido un excelente cumplimiento de los requisitos de uso de mascarillas y distanciamiento social en White Plains y todos nos hemos beneficiado de eso. Todos nuestros esfuerzos como comunidad están enfocados en mantener a las personas saludables hasta que haya una vacuna disponible que nos proteja a todos. ¡Es vital que no bajemos la guardia ahora! Los datos continúan apuntando a los beneficios de usar mascarillas. ¡Usa la tuya!
Tenga en cuenta que hay varios cierres de carreteras importantes o restricciones vigentes a partir de hoy como resultado de varios proyectos de tuberías y alcantarillado. Éstos incluyen:
- Carriles restringidos en Longview Avenue entre Maple Avenue y Post Road.
- Carriles cerrados al tráfico en Main Street en Lexington Avenue y en Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. y Martine Avenue.
- Cierres periódicos de carriles en Old Orchard Street.
- Cierres periódicos de carriles en South Lexington desde Quarropas Street hasta Dennison Street.
Gracias por su paciencia y cooperación mientras trabajamos en reparar esta importante infraestructura de la ciudad.
Nuestra próxima llamada es el lunes 31 de agosto. ¡Hasta entonces! Y recuerde, estamos más juntos manteniéndonos separado
