Westchester Considers How to Reopen

Print

Westchester County might be close to reopening parts of the economy, County Executive George Latimer said Monday, depending on how our neighbors in the Mid-Hudson Valley are faring.

During his daily briefing, Latimer said the county has hit the state-required metrics for hospital capacity, ICU capacity and testing. But the county must keep new hospitalizations to less than 20 residents daily and have a 14-day decline in COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations, he says.

The county is also in the process of putting together a team of contact tracers to track down residents who may have been exposed to the virus.

The state’s current stay-at-home order runs until May 15, but after that Gov. Andrew Cuomo said each of the 10 regions can start a four-phase reopening plan — if they meet certain criteria.
