Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents March 08, 2021

 The data is continuing to show a decline in active COVID cases in White Plains. There are currently an estimated 327 active cases in our City, down 10 from our call last week. Over the past 7 days, we have averaged 23 new cases per day.  

 Although eligibility for the Covid vaccine remains limited, there has been a marked increase in vaccinations in White Plains. Residents eligible for the vaccine should continue to check the State website, covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov or call the State Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829) to check for openings at the County Center as well as other state–run vaccination sites.

 If you are 65 and older, reside in the City of White Plains, and need assistance in securing an appointment for a vaccination, please call (914) 422-1378 between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.

 The one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been given emergency authorization and inoculations with that vaccine have begun in Westchester County and in White Plains, joining the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.

 It is important that we all continue to wear our masks in public as that has repeatedly been demonstrated to be the most effective means of stemming transmission. Individuals who have been vaccinated must continue to wear their masks until eligibility expands and all of our neighbors have had the chance to get theirs. Although we are headed in the right direction, the presence of variants and the lack of herd immunity require us to maintain the discipline we have shown thus far. Now is not the time to let up, wear your mask!

 Our next call is on Monday, March 15th. Until then remember, we’re standing together by staying apart.

Las estadisticas indican que los casos activos de COVID en White Plains siguen disminuyendo. Actualmente hay un estimado de 327 casos activos en nuestra ciudad, 10 menos que nuestra llamada de la semana pasada. Durante los últimos 7 días, ha habido un promedio de 23 casos nuevos por día.

 Aunque las categorias de quienes califican para la vacuna Covid aun son limitadas, ha habido un aumento significante en las vacunas recibidas en White Plains. Los residentes que cumplan con los requisitos para la vacuna deben continuar visitando el sitio web del estado, covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov o llamar al 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829) para verificar si hay vacantes en el County Center, así como en otros sitios de vacunación administrados por el estado.

Si tiene 65 años o más, reside en la ciudad de White Plains y necesita ayuda para hacer una cita para vacunarse, llame al (914) 422-1378 entre las 8:00 am y las 6:00 pm.
 La vacuna Johnson & Johnson, la cual es de una sola dosis, ha recibido autorización de emergencia y las inoculaciones con esa vacuna han comenzado en el condado de Westchester y en White Plains, uniéndose a las vacunas Moderna y Pfizer.

Es importante que todos sigamos usando nuestras mascarillas en público, ya que se ha demostrado repetidamente que es el medio más eficaz para detener la transmisión. Las personas que han sido vacunadas deben continuar usando sus mascarillas hasta que todos nuestros vecinos hayan tenido la oportunidad de ser vacunados.

Estamos haciendo muy bien pero, hay nuevas variantes y hasta que haya inmunidad colectiva estamos obligados a mantener la disciplina que hemos demostrado hasta ahora. Ahora no es el momento de darnos por vencidos, ¡usa tu mascarilla!

Nuestra próxima llamada es el lunes 15 de marzo. Hasta entonces, y recuerde: estamos mas juntos manteniéndonos mas separados.
