The coronavirus (or COVID-19) is affecting us as New Rochelle is at the center of coronavirus on the East Coast. We send our best wishes to anyone who has family or friends in quarantine, who is affected in terms of employment, or even for those of us who are afraid. We are all unsure about sending ourselves and our families to work, to school, or gatherings. We are concerned as the Census is upon us, activities for elections are in full swing. Please stay tuned for information on activities that can be done from home or in smaller groups.

New Rochelle Coronavirus Press Conference - March 10

One of the reasons why news of coronavirus is feeling stressful is the utter lack of leadership in the White House. We want to assure you that there IS leadership at the State, County, and City level. Communications channels with officials are open, and we will be sharing information with you as plans and next steps come together. Be assured that there is a big push and energy going toward increased virus testing capacity at the State level. We will pass along suggestions as how we can help those who are vulnerable, both physically and economically.

Who is making decisions?

Response to this virus involves all layers of government. The Federal Agencies -- the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) -- determine which type of virus test can be used for diagnostics, and which facilities can perform the tests. They also provide guidance on who should be tested. The State, County, and City then use this information in their decisions on how to perform tests and whom to quarantine.
