Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents: March 5, 2020

CITY SEAL - HIGH RES

Dear White Plains Residents,

We continue to work with State, County and White Plains Hospital officials, community organizations, and others to ensure an effective and coordinated response to the coronavirus outbreak.


According to the Westchester County Department of Health there are now up to 18 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Westchester County. As has been widely reported, there are three confirmed cases associated with a private school in White Plains, Westchester Torah Academy. The three students who tested positive are the children of the man who is a friend of and spent time with the original patient. Westchester Torah Academy has been closed until March 16 and the NY State Department of Health has required all students, faculty, and staff to isolate themselves at home through that date. The re-opening of the school is conditional on whether any new positive COVID-19 cases are identified.


My staff and I met with White Plains Hospital officials and representatives from Empress Ambulance Service on Wednesday morning to discuss their monitoring, preparation, and response efforts. Everything from hospital staff education about the virus to patient transport protocols to information sharing to availability of supplies is being worked on.


White Plains Hospital has established a Coronavirus hotline. The hotline number is (914) 681-2900. It is available 24 hours/day. This hotline will be updated by the Hospital regularly with information about the virus. It also gives callers the option of connecting with a White Plains Hospital representative if they are concerned that they are exhibiting symptoms or might have been exposed to the virus. We thank the Hospital for establishing this hotline for our community.


We continue to urge everyone to take the common sense approach to this virus outlined by the Westchester County Department of Health and other trusted sources, such as the CDC. Residents should also be advised that Westchester County is taking steps to ensure that all Bee-Line buses are sanitized daily.


This has been a rapidly evolving public health issue and there is no doubt that it will remain so for the foreseeable future. The guidance and common sense protocols offered by our public health officials is our best protection. We will continue to keep residents updated as developments occur and continue to pass on information from State and County public health officials as we receive it.

Thank you, Mayor Tom Roach
