With COVID rates once again on the rise, I just sent the following citywide message, detailing new State requirements and encouraging vaccines and boosters.  Stay safe and healthy.

This is the City of New Rochelle with an important public health update.

Para espanol, oprima numero uno. 

COVID cases are once again increasing throughout our region. As a result, New York State has announced new restrictions. Starting Monday, all indoor public spaces must require either proof of vaccination or mask-wearing.

Free boosters are now available for everyone 16 and older at doctor’s offices, medical centers, and pharmacies. If you’re eligible, please get your booster as soon as possible. And, of course, if you haven’t yet received your first shot, there’s never been a better time. It’s the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from serious illness, especially with the arrival of the highly-contagious omicron variant. To find a vaccination and booster site near you, visit vaccines.gov.

Additional details are available on the City website at www.newrochelleny.com/coronavirus.

This has been Mayor Noam Bramson. Thank you for listening, and let’s all do our part to have a safe and healthy winter.
