Key Information to Protect Your Family from COVID-19

Our country and our county are facing the unprecedented challenge of the highly contagious COVID-19.

Updates can by found on my governmental website and the NYS Department of Health website which is updated daily. The DOH site contains updates and several fact sheets for how to limit the spread of the disease and what to do if you are experiencing symptoms.

If you believe you have been exposed, you should contact your primary care physician who can refer you for testing. Expanded testing opportunities are being made available with testing requests prioritized according to DOH criteria. To see if you qualify for testing, contact either your primary care provider or the State hotline at 888-364-3065.

Important hotline numbers are:

  • People under self-quarantine or exposure to known case: (866) 588-0195
  • NYS Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline: (888) 364-3065 (24/7)
  • Westchester County COVID-19 Information: Call 211

You may also access the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html and the NYS website https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/home

I am working with local officials, school districts and state agencies to address the issues that arise in this evolving challenge to our nation. Please contact me if I can be helpful and please follow the latest public health advisories found on the NYS Department of Health website.
