Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his COVID-19 briefing from from the Saxon Woods Pool in White Plains. He was not wearing a bathing suit but his usual suit and tie. Along with folks from parks and recreation, Latimer spoke about the four county pools opening for the summer. A reminder, Rye Playland pool is not opening.
Just like everyone else, Latimer is looking at the NY State COVID-19 tracker for county and state level statistics on the pandemic and at the NY State regional monitoring dashboard to see our progress towards continued reopening.
