Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents March 22, 2021

CWP seal

The data is continuing to show a decline in active COVID cases in White Plains. There are currently an estimated 271 active cases in our City, down 33 from our call last week. Over the last 7 days we have averaged 19 new Covid cases per day. 256 people are currently hospitalized with Covid in Westchester County. Additional Covid data is available on the County’s dashboard, which can be accessed through cityofwhiteplains.com. 

 Starting tomorrow, New York State will expand vaccine eligibility to those 50 years and older. In addition, pharmacies will now be able to vaccinate adults with underlying health conditions, known as co-morbidities. Pharmacies were previously limited to vaccinating only seniors and teachers. If you are eligible, I urge you to schedule a vaccination appointment, as eligibility categories will continue to expand in the near future. 

There are several ways to do this. You can 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, Yonkers Armory, and other state–run vaccination sites. We recommend that you check this site regularly at all times of day as appointment availability comes and goes quickly. The County dashboard also lists the names of local pharmacies throughout Westchester that have received doses of the vaccine. Check out this list and call the pharmacy directly for an appointment. 

 For those who need assistance securing an appointment, please call our White Plains COVID Angels at (914) 422-1378 between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.  

 Today, I had the opportunity to visit several of our schools with Superintendent Ricca. The White Plains School District has begun its full-time reopening process with all of the appropriate protocols in place. The kids were excited to be back 

and the teachers were clearly energized as well. This is a great step forward for our community! 

 Vaccination efforts are starting to bear fruit. As of yesterday, 30% of the population of Westchester County have received at least one shot, and 15% have been fully vaccinated. This is good news, but as I’ve said before, we must continue to wear our masks and observe the common sense protocols that have brought us to this point, until everyone has had the opportunity to be vaccinated. We are going to continue to follow the advice of medical and public health professionals and be guided by the science here in White Plains. The finish line appears to be in sight but we must maintain our focus through to the end. 

 Our next call is on Tuesday, March 30th. Until then remember, we’re standing together by staying apart.

_______________________________________________________________________

Las estadisticas indican que los casos activos de COVID en White Plains estan disminuyendo. Actualmente hay un estimado de 271 casos activos en nuestra ciudad, 33 menos que cuando lo llamamos la semana pasada. Para obtener datos adicionales de Covid visite el tablero del condado, al que puede acceder a través de cityofwhiteplains.com.

 

A partir de mañana, el estado de Nueva York hara disponible vacunas a aquellos mayores de 50 años. Además, las farmacias ahora podrán vacunar a los adultos con problemas de salud serios como enfermedades cronicas. Anteriormente, las farmacias se limitaban a vacunar solo a personas mayores y maestros. Si cumple con los requisitos, lo insto a que se vacune. Las categorias de quienes se pueden vacunar seguiran expandiéndose en el futuro cercano.

 

 Visite el sitio web del estado, covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov o llame al 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829) para ver si hay cupos disponibles en el County Center, Yonkers Armory y otros sitios de vacunación administrados por el estado. Le recomendamos que consulte este sitio con regularidad en todo momento del día, ya que la disponibilidad de citas aparece y desaparece rápidamente. El tablero del condado también enumera los nombres de las farmacias locales en Westchester que han recibido dosis de la vacuna. Consulte esta lista y llame directamente a la farmacia para concertar una cita.

 

Aquellos que necesitan ayuda para hacer una cita, por favor llamen a nuestros Ángeles COVID de White Plains al (914) 422-1378 entre las 8:00 am y las 6:00 pm.

 

 Los esfuerzos de vacunación están comenzando a dar sus frutos. Hasta ayer, el 30% de la población del condado de Westchester había recibido al menos una vacuna y el 15% estaba completamente vacunado. Esta es una buena noticia, pero como dije antes, debemos seguir usando nuestras mascarillas y seguir los protocolos de sentido común gracias a los que los numeros han disminuido, hasta que todos hayan tenido la oportunidad de vacunarse. Continuaremos siguiendo los consejos de los médicos y de salud pública y nos guiaremos por la ciencia aquí en White Plains. Ya casi llegamos a la meta, pero debemos mantener nuestro enfoque hasta el final.
