Masks Required in All Indoor Public Places Unless Businesses or Venues Implement a Vaccine Requirement

New York Governor Kathleen Hochul announced a mandate requiring that all businesses and venues require employees and patrons in public indoor spaces to wear masks, unless the business or venue requires all individuals on the premises to be fully vaccinated. The mandate, which applies to private businesses, will go into effect on December 13, and last until January 15, 2022, at which time it will be reevaluated. Read full announcement from NY State HERE.

Westchester County Launches Covid-19 “Get Boosted” Campaign. It’s Not Too Late To Get Your Covid-19 Vaccine Or Your Booster Shot. 

Help Westchester County Kick Covid to the Curb – Get Vaccinated Today!

(White Plains, NY) – If you have not yet gotten your COVID-19 vaccine or your booster shot, it’s not too late! The COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19, and it is highly effective at reducing the spread of the virus. To stress the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot, Westchester County is launching a “Get Boosted Campaign.”

Watch this short video on the “Get Boosted” Campaign

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “We want Westchester County to emerge on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic, and getting your vaccine or booster is more important now than ever with the Omicron Variant making its way into our region. One thing that we do know is that the vaccinations are working, and it is the best way to help prevent the spread of this disease. We know that nearly all of Westchester County’s population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, and we appreciate everyone doing their part to keep our communities healthy and safe. But – if you have not yet gotten the vaccine or your booster, please make an appointment to do so. Help us turn the corner on this deadly disease.”

Westchester County is hosting multiple COVID-19 vaccine and booster clinics at locations throughout the County. Visit the County Health Department Website to schedule an appointment today.  

The Department of Health is holding vaccine booster clinics for eligible individuals by appointment only, at 134 Court Street in White Plains. Schedule a Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson Booster shot HERE

The New York State Vaccination Clinic for anyone ages five and up has moved from the Westchester County Center in White Plains, to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla. Appointments are required. Make an appointment HERE

The COVID-19 vaccine is free, and everyone five years of age and older is eligible to receive it. To locate pharmacies and other community sites offering the COVID-19 vaccine, use the Vaccine Finder Tool

Westchester County, in partnership with New York State, has established an in-home vaccination program to help those who are homebound due to physical limitations, cognitive impairment or other chronic conditions, a lack of transportation, and/or visual impairments, and who do not have access to supports that may help them physically go to an existing vaccination provider. Find out more about the in-home vaccination program HERE

County Executive Latimer is offering senior and disabled constituents, including those who are not registered with ParaTransit, free transportation to receive their COVID-19 vaccines. Call ParaTransit reservations at (914) 995-7272, 24 hours prior to your vaccination date to schedule your ride.

Hudson River Museum was honored to welcome António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, and Catarina Vaz Pinto, Councillor of Culture for the City of Lisbon, Portugal.

Known as strong proponents of the arts, education, and human rights, the pair made a visit to the HRM to explore African American Art in the 20th Century and Jamel Robinson: Beauty from Ashes, two current exhibitions recently featured in The New York Times that speak directly to the Museum’s mission and address diversity, equity, and the human experience.
