Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents March 30, 2021

CWP seal

There are currently an estimated 309 active cases in our City, up 34 from our call 8 days ago. Over the last 7 days we are averaging 25 new cases per day. 259 people are currently hospitalized with COVID in Westchester County. After plateauing for a period of time we are now seeing new cases increasing once again in White Plains and statewide. Whether that increase becomes a spike depends on all of us.    It is vital that everyone continues to wear their masks and continues the common sense protocols we have all become accustomed to in order to give the vaccine time to get ahead of the virus. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has stated “I’m asking you to just hold on a little longer, to get vaccinated when you can, so that all of those people that we all love will still be here when this pandemic ends”.

As of today, New Yorkers age 30 and up are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and can schedule their appointments. Starting April 6, New Yorkers age 16 and up will be eligible. All three of the vaccines authorized in the US have been proven safe and effective. There are a number of ways to get an appointment. Check the State website, ny.gov/GetVaccinated for appointment at state–run vaccination sites. Check the site regularly as new appointments become available throughout the day. Westchester County is running a vaccine clinic at Westchester Community College go to health.Westchestergov.com, to check availability and schedule an appointment. Check the County website for local pharmacies that have received doses of the vaccine and call the pharmacy directly for an appointment. For those who need assistance securing an appointment, call our White Plains COVID Angels at (914) 422-1378 between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.

Finally, We will have a modified garbage collection schedule in place this week due to Good Friday. If you live on a Monday/Thursday garbage collection route, your trash will be picked up tomorrow. If you live on a Tuesday/Friday collection route, your trash will be picked up on Thursday. There will be no trash collection Friday and there will be NO paper recycling this week. Paper recycling will resume on Wednesday, April 7th.

Our next call is on Tuesday, April 6th. Until then remember, we’re standing together by staying apart.

Actualmente hay un estimado de 309 casos activos en nuestra ciudad, 34 casos más que cuando lo llamamos hace 8 días. Durante los últimos 7 días, hemos visto un promedio de 25 casos nuevos por día. Actualmente, 259 personas están hospitalizadas con COVID en el condado de Westchester. 

 

Durante un tiempo habíamos visto números estables, sin embargo la cantidad de  casos nuevos está aumentando una vez más en White Plains y en todo el estado. Depende de nosotros si este aumento se dispara de nuevo. Es vital que todos sigan usando sus mascarillas y continúen siguiendo las pautas de sentido común a las que ya nos hemos acostumbrado para dar tiempo a que la vacuna se adelante al virus.  La directora de la CDC, Rochelle Walensky, dijo: "Les pido que esperen un poco más, que se vacunen cuando puedan, para que nuestros seres queridos sigan aquí cuando termine esta pandemia".

 

A partir de hoy, los neoyorquinos de 30 años en adelante  podrán vacunarse, y a partir del 6 de abril, los neoyorquinos de 16 años en adelante podrán vacunarse. Se ha demostrado que las tres vacunas autorizadas en los EE. UU. Son seguras y efectivas. Hay varias formas de hacer una cita.

Visite el sitio web del estado, ny.gov/GetVaccinated para obtener una cita en los sitios de vacunación administrados por el estado.

 Visite el sitio con regularidad a medida que haya nuevas citas disponibles durante el día. El condado de Westchester tiene una clínica de vacunas en el Westchester Community College. Visite health.Westchestergov.com para verificar la disponibilidad y programar una cita. Visite el sitio web del condado para ver que farmacias locales han recibido dosis de la vacuna y llame a la farmacia directamente para programar una cita. Para aquellos que necesitan ayuda para hacer una cita, llame a nuestros Ángeles COVID de White Plains al (914) 422-1378 entre las 8:00 am y las 6:00 pm.

 

Finalmente, esta semana habrá cambios en la recolección de basura en celebración del Viernes Santo. Si usted vive en una ruta de recolección de basura de lunes y jueves, su basura se recogerá mañana.

Si vive en una ruta de recolección de martes y viernes, su basura se recogerá el jueves. No habrá recolección de basura el viernes y NO habrá reciclaje de papel esta semana. El reciclaje de papel se reanudará el miércoles 7 de abril.

Nuestra próxima llamada es el martes 6 de abril. Hasta entonces y recuerde que estamos más juntos al mantenernos más separados.
