Here in Rockland County we have been working very closely with and in support of the actions taken by New York State. However, the time has come that we must take additional actions locally to protect the health and safety of everyone in Rockland.
There are numerous legal obstacles that we have had to address before taking summary action. We are working through the weekend to ensure this is being done in a legal and proper manner.
The details of those local actions are being finalized and will be announced fully on Monday at 1:00 PM. I ask all of you to stay calm and remember to look out for your friends and neighbors as we navigate this situation with COVID-19. Together there is no obstacle we cannot overcome.
