New Rochelle and our region enter Phase IV of the reopening process today, allowing higher education, as well as low-risk arts & entertainment, to restart operations. There’s more at forward.ny.gov.
Our continuing progress is good news and a credit to the hard work of all of us in the nation’s former epicenter of the virus. Even so, spiking rates of infection in other parts of the country serve as an alarming cautionary tale. The crisis is not over, individual responsibility remains vital, and New York is absolutely right to monitor public health statistics in order to determine if and when restrictions need to be reimposed.
Let’s each do our part to keep moving in the right direction.
