Larchmont Resident Dies from Covid-19

Covid-19 has claimed the life of one Larchmont resident and a man who is hospitalized with the virus is in critical condition, according to Larchmont Mayor Lorraine Walsh.

The death occurred on Friday. No other details about the two virus victims are available at this time.

This comes on the same day that Westchester County Executive George Latimer  announced that flags be lowered to half staff at all county buildings and facilities to honor those who have died from the contagion.

Latimer also shared the somber news that the county has received a trailer which will serve as a temporary morgue.  “We now have, day after day, more people dying at any singular moment in time than we would expect to have… To have as many die in such a short time there is a practical reality of how we handle the funeral and burial of that individual. We are having to deal with now is a backlog of those who have died and how to handle that process…”

Please understand that if you’re out in public, outdoors, Manor Beach Park and vicinity, you must wear a mask. The open air is not a vaccine. Coughing, talking, sneezing aerosolize the virus and leave an invisible trail. I’ve seen so many walkers, bicycle riders, who simply don’t get what our Governor repeatedly states: “ I wear my mask for you. You wear your mask for me.” People wear headphones and airbuds- why can’t they wear a mask? It’s THE SINGLE MOST EFFECTIVE way to prevent transmission of a deadly virus. I have heard nasty, inaccurate and downright selfish comments when I remind people that they should wear a mask. I don’t want my life placed at risk due to the selfish, inconsiderate, ego-centric attitudes of people in my own community.
Signs should be posted throughout the park and surrounding area ( red bridge ) that masks are required. Should our immunocompromised neighbors have to remain inside because people are ill-informed or more likely selfish? I propose that non mask wearers walk outside between the hours of 2-3 a.m. Keep this community and beyond safe. 🛑🦠😷. Simple.
