Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents, Sept. 14th, 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, 959. The county estimates the number of active cases in White Plains to be 34.


It is so important that all of us continue to follow the common sense guidelines of wearing a mask and staying socially distant when in public. As we enter the fall season, which will bring new challenges, we must remember that the virus is still present in our area. Let us continue to focus on prevention to keep as many people healthy as possible until a vaccine is available that will protect us all. We know we can do it because we have been doing it!

 

It is now also officially flu season and the seasonal flu vaccine is becoming available. I urge everyone to get their flu shot now, as demand for the vaccine is anticipated to be high. While the flu vaccine will not protect you from Covid there are concerns that people who contract both illnesses will have a higher risk of complications. Additionally you will be helping our healthcare workers. Should we see a resurgence in Covid, a flu outbreak would further tax our healthcare resources. If you have been looking for something else you can do to protect the health of yourself and others here it is!


Finally, an important reminder about the census. The deadline to respond to the 2020 census is September 30th.  As we enter these final weeks of the count, I want to urge you, if you have not already done so, to complete your census questionnaire. It’s quick. It’s easy, and it’s safe. Go to 2020Census.gov, enter your address and follow the prompts provided on the screen. The online system is secure. Your information will not be shared.


Our next call will be on Monday, September 21st.  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 resultados positivo en White Plains desde que comenzaron las pruebas es de 1, 959. El condado estima que el número de casos activos en White Plains es de 34.

 

 Es muy importante que todos continuemos poniendo en práctica las pautas de sentido común en cuanto a usar mascarillas y mantenernos a cierta distancia cuando estamos en público. A medida que entramos en la temporada de otoño, enfrentaremos nuevos desafíos. Debemos recordar que el virus aún está presente en nuestra área. Continuemos enfocándonos en la prevención para mantener a la mayor cantidad de personas sanas hasta que esté disponible una vacuna que nos proteja a todos. ¡Sabemos que podemos hacerlo porque ya lo hemos hecho!

 

También ha comenzado oficialmente la temporada de gripe y la vacuna contra la gripe de estación ya está disponible. Animo a todos a que se vacunen contra la gripe cuanto antes, ya que se estima que mucha gente querrá ponerse la vacuna.  Si bien la vacuna contra la gripe no lo protegerá de Covid, existe la preocupación de que las personas que contraen ambas enfermedades a la vez tengan un mayor riesgo de complicaciones. Si se vacuna, también estará ayudando a nuestros trabajadores del área de salud. Si vemos un resurgimiento en Covid, un brote de gripe haría nuestros recursos de atención médica aún más escasos. Si ha estado buscando algo más que pueda hacer para proteger su salud y la de los demás, ¡aquí está su oportunidad para ayudar! Vacúnese contra la gripe.

 

Finalmente, un recordatorio importante sobre el censo. La fecha límite para responder al censo 2020 es el 30 de septiembre. Al entrar en estas últimas semanas del conteo, quiero instarlo, si aún no lo ha hecho, a completar su cuestionario del censo. Es rápido, fácil y seguro. Vaya a 2020Census.gov, ingrese su dirección y siga las indicaciones provistas en la pantalla. El sistema en línea es seguro. Su información se mantendrá confidencial. 

 

Nuestra próxima llamada será el lunes 21 de septiembre. Hasta entonces y recuerde que estamos más juntos manteniéndonos más separados.
