Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents, Sept. 21st, 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, 964. The county estimates the number of active cases in White Plains to be 21.

 

The number of new cases we are seeing is currently very low however we are continuing to see new cases, a reminder the virus is still out there. Until there is a vaccine available that will protect us all we must continue to work together as a community to prevent the virus from finding a new foothold. The benefits of wearing a mask and the risks of not wearing one have been demonstrated repeatedly, around the world. If you are talking to someone who says masks are not necessary or helpful you are in conversation with someone who doesn’t know what they are talking about. Walk away! And keep wearing your mask!

 

The flu vaccine is here, I got mine Friday. Higher than normal demand for the shot is expected, I would encourage everyone to get theirs as soon as possible.

 

Tomorrow is National Voter Registration Day! If you haven’t registered to vote you only have until October 9th. If you are already registered to vote make a plan now for voting. There were long lines on the date of the most recent primary and turnout for the general election is expected to be high. There are several voting options available, including by absentee ballot, in-person early voting, and in-person on Election Day.  Information on all these issues is available at the County Board of Elections website citizenparticipation.westchestergov.com and also on the City of White Plains website.

 

Our next call will be on Tuesday, September 29th.  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 1, 964. El condado estima que el número de casos activos en White Plains es de 21 personas.

 

 El número de casos nuevos que hay en actualmente es muy bajo, sin embargo, seguimos viendo casos nuevos, un recordatorio de que el virus aún está aquí.

 

 Hasta que no haya una vacuna disponible que nos proteja a todos, debemos seguir trabajando juntos como comunidad para evitar que el virus se expanda de nuevo. Los beneficios de usar una máscara y los riesgos de no usarla se han demostrado repetidamente en todo el mundo. Si está hablando con alguien que dice que las máscaras no son necesarias o útiles, está conversando con alguien que no tiene idea de que está hablando. ¡Aléjese y siga usando su máscara!

 

La vacuna contra la gripe ya está disponible, yo me puse la mía el viernes. Se espera una demanda más alta de lo normal para la inyección, por lo tanto, animaría a todos a obtener la suya lo antes posible.

 

¡Mañana es el Día Nacional de Registro de Votantes! Si no se ha registrado para votar, solo tiene hasta el 9 de octubre. Si ya se registró, haga los arreglos ahora para votar. Durante las primarias de votación hubo largas filas y se espera que la participación en las elecciones generales sea aún mayor. Hay varias opciones de votación disponibles, incluida la boleta de voto ausente, la votación anticipada en persona y la votación en persona el día de las elecciones. Para más información sobre todos estos temas visite el sitio web de la Junta Electoral del Condado en: citizenparticipation.westchestergov.com y también en el sitio web de la Ciudad de White Plains.
