Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his COVID-19 briefing at the Michaelian Office Building in White Plains and was joined by Village of Pleasantville Mayor Peter Scherer. Latimer continued to urge caution, while saying how excited he was to be able to get a haircut and get back to church.

He reminded people COVID-19 tests are free. You can call NY State for details on 888-364-3065. Latimer also said small businesses that need PPE can call Bridget Gibbons, deputy director of economic development for assistance on 914-995-2900.
