Guidance on the Use of Paid Sick Leave

On March 18, 2020, New York State enacted legislation authorizing sick leave for employees subject to a mandatory or precautionary order of quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19. The law provides paid and unpaid sick leave with access to expanded paid family leave and temporary disability depending on the size of the employer. All employees, regardless of the size of their employer, are entitled to job protection upon return from leave.

Westchester County Public Health Awards

 Westchester County Board of Health to Recognize Adult and Youth Volunteers


The Westchester County Board of Health is now seeking nominations for the 2021 Public Health Service Awards. The Board wants to recognize adults, young people and not-for-profit programs whose volunteer efforts have demonstrated creativity and compassion in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and who helped improve public health in Westchester.  The Board encourages community leaders, healthcare professionals, educators and residents to nominate worthy people or programs.

  • The Dr. Harold Keltz Distinguished Public Health Service Award is presented annually to a person or community-based organization, whose efforts have made an extraordinary contribution to the public health of Westchester residents but who is not professionally engaged in public health work.

  • The J.R. Tesone Youth Public Health Service Award is an annual award to a student up to age 21 for his or her creative contribution to public health in Westchester. The award was created in 2014 in memory of J.R. Tesone, a Board of Health member with a lifelong commitment to Westchester children.

The Board will also highlight the compassion, creativity and commitment demonstrated by a select group of nominees, who will be named Public Health Honorees.
