Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his weekly COVID-19 briefing from the Michaelian Office Building in White Plains. He mentioned he will be delivering the State of the County address on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 7pm. He also mentioned in the wake of the recent tropical storm that Con Ed will be issuing a credit of between $2.67 – $3.20 to customers. He said this was not acceptable.

Just like everyone else, county executives look 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.
