Today’s Coronavirus Update: 10/13/2020 

Hello, this is White Plains Mayor Tom Roach calling with important information regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

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 2,019. The county estimates the number of active cases in White Plains to be 32. 
On a county wide basis cases are trending up, it’s up to all of us to turn that trend around. County Health Commissioner Dr. Sherlita Amler, quoted in the Journal News today gave us the bottom line: if there’s no exposure there’s no disease. We must work together to reduce the risk of exposure. Wear your masks, wash your hands and maintain social distance. Basic instructions that have proven to be effective, now is not the time to let up. Our community’s commitment to reducing the spread brought us out of the lockdown. Where this goes next is up to us! 
NY State has launched a mobile contact tracing app that offers voluntary, anonymous exposure notification. If you download the free app Covid Alert NY on your smartphone, you will receive an alert if you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 if they are also registered with the program. The more people who download the Covid Alert NY app, the more effective it will be. Self quarantining immediately once you’ve been in close contact with someone who tests positive will help reduce the spread. More information on the program is available on the White Plains city website. 
The flu vaccine is here and I encourage everyone to get theirs as soon as possible. Keep in mind that higher than normal demand for the shot is expected. 
Our next call will be on Monday , October 19th. Until then remember, we are standing together by staying apart.


Los datos más recientes proporcionados por el condado hoy indican que el total de personas que han dado positivo en White Plains desde que comenzaron las pruebas es de 2,019. El condado estima que el número de casos activos en White Plains es de 32 personas.

 En todo el condado, los casos están aumentando, depende de todos nosotros cambiar esa tendencia. La Dra. Sherlita Amler, comisionada de salud del condado, dijo hoy en el periódico Journal News: si no hay exposición, no hay enfermedad. Debemos trabajar juntos para reducir el riesgo de exposición. Use sus mascarillas, lávese las manos y mantenga el distanciamiento social. Instrucciones básicas que han demostrado ser efectivas, ahora no es el momento de darnos por vencidos. El compromiso de nuestra comunidad de reducir la propagación hizo que los números disminuyeran.  Como será de aquí en adelante depende de nosotros.

 

NY State ha lanzado una aplicación de rastreo de contactos móvil que ofrece notificación de exposición voluntaria y anónima. Si descarga la aplicación gratuita Covid Alert NY en su teléfono inteligente, y se registra en el programa recibirá una alerta si ha estado en contacto cercano con alguien que ha tenido resultados positivos de COVID-19. Cuantas más personas descarguen la aplicación Covid Alert NY, más eficaz será. Al ponerse en cuarentena inmediatamente una vez que haya estado en contacto cercano con alguien que dé positivo en la prueba ayudará a reducir la propagación. Acceda a más información en el sitio web de la ciudad de White Plains. 

La vacuna contra la gripe está aquí y animo a todos a que se pongan la suya lo antes posible. Tenga en cuenta que se espera que haya más personas interesadas en la  inyección lo que puede hacer que se acaben rápido. 

 Nuestra próxima llamada está programada para el 19 de octubre. Hasta entonces y recuerde que estamos más cerca al mantenernos más separados.
