This Week`s COVID-19 Updates

Dear Neighbor,

As NY State continues to tackle COVID-19, we must continue to take necessary precaution to protect ourselves and others. Limit travel outside of your home to only when absolutely necessary and remember to check-in on friends, neighbors and family during this time.

Last week, Governor Cuomo announced the “New York State on PAUSE” executive order, a 10-point policy to assure uniform safety for everyone. Below I have information on that policy, as well as other COVID-19 related updates.

If you have any questions or concerns my staff is available Monday – Friday from 10AM – 5PM at 718-588-7500 or by email at District16Bronx@council.nyc.gov.
