The DOH has indicated that family members were directed to quarantine, pending the parent’s lab results.

The DOH does not test children unless they are showing symptoms.

Please, please, please Larchmonters wear masks outside, socials distancing, even when practiced, is not enough, One of the odd things about covid is that there are many, many asymptomatic carriers. You may be immortal, older people and people with underlying conditions are not. I know it is a pain to follow the Governor’s order but is it really worth sentencing someone to die alone unable to to be visited by family and friends? That is what you are playing with. I’m used to a lot of entitlement around here but this is stunning. Covid-19 has killed more Americans in 3 months than the Vietnam war did in 19 years. Please be responsible,

Due to the increased use of Larchmont Ave by bicycle riders, walkers, runners, families large and small the speed limit must be reduced to 20 MPH to provide protection and demonstrate leadership and empathy during these extraordinary times. This recommendation must be considered and implemented now! ( in all areas of the Village) All readers forward message please to all municipalities…
Write and call all elected officials thanks David Litzky
