CWP seal

The County estimates that there are 1,033 active cases in the county as a whole, the highest numbers we’ve seen since early June. There are currently 45 active cases in White Plains. The cumulative number of people who have tested positive in White Plains since testing began is 2,061.  

Although the overall number of active cases remains at a manageable level, the trend line continues to show an upswing in cases in the County. To one degree or another, we have all experienced fatigue with COVID protocols. However, the evidence shows that the protocols, particularly the wearing of masks, have a substantial impact on the spread of the disease. Don’t let your guard down, White Plains! Please continue to wear your masks!  

 The Westchester County Health Commissioner has issued an order requiring the wearing of masks for students in grades K – 12 in public and private schools in Westchester County. The order contains certain exceptions, such as while a student is eating. Schools have received the order and will be implementing it.

 Early voting has started and will continue through November 1st. The early voting location in White Plains is the Board of Elections. Go to citizenparticipation.westchestergov.com for more information. 

 The White Plains Police Reform Committee will host its third public comment session on Thursday, October 29th at 7 PM. This session is geared toward youth, but is open to anyone who would like to participate. Go to the city website for more details about the work of this committee and how you can participate.  

 Our next call will be on Monday, November 2nd.  Until then remember, we are standing together by staying apart.


El condado estima que hay 1033 casos activos en todo el condado, la cifra más alta que hemos visto desde principios de junio. El condado estima que hay 45 casos activos en White Plains. El número total de personas que han dado positivo en White Plains desde que comenzaron las pruebas es de 2.061.

 Aunque el número total de casos activos se mantiene en un nivel manejable, se han visto aumentos en los casos en el condado. De alguna manera u otra todos nos hemos sentidos cansados de los protocolos de  COVID. Aun así, la evidencia muestra que las pautas seguidas, particularmente el uso de mascarillas, tienen un impacto sustancial en la propagación de la enfermedad. ¡No bajes la guardia, White Plains! ¡Continúa usando tus mascarillas!

 El Comisionado de Salud del Condado de Westchester ha emitido una orden que requiere el uso de mascarillas para los estudiantes en los grados K - 12 en las escuelas públicas y privadas del condado de Westchester. La orden contiene ciertas excepciones, como el usar las mascarillas mientras se come. Las escuelas han recibido la orden y la implementarán.

 La votación anticipada ya comenzó y continuará hasta el 1 de noviembre. El lugar de votación anticipada en White Plains es la Junta de Elecciones. Vaya a citizenparticipation.westchestergov.com para obtener más información.

 El Comité de Reforma de la Policía de White Plains será el anfitrión de su tercera sesión de comentarios públicos el jueves 29 de octubre a las 7 pm. Esta sesión está dirigida a los jóvenes, pero está abierta a cualquier persona que desee participar. Visite el sitio web de la ciudad para obtener más detalles sobre el trabajo de este comité y cómo puede participar.

Nuestra próxima llamada será el lunes 2 de noviembre. Hasta entonces y recuerde, estamos más juntos manteniéndonos más separados.
