Coronavirus Information and Updates
Updates from the Village
The latest Coronavirus Update from Mayor Paul Rosenberg posted July 10, 2020:
Westchester County is in Phase IV of the state’s reopening plan. As of today, there are approximately 4 active Coronavirus cases in Rye Brook. Such a low infection number coupled with the fact that we have been dealing with this pandemic since March has helped to create ‘Coronavirus Fatigue’. We are all tired of hearing about social distancing, hand washing, etc. Village residents have done a tremendous job of preventing Rye Brook Coronavirus ‘hot spots’. But now is not the time to let our guard down. Please remember and remind your children that even though our recreation facilities are open, we still need to try to keep our distance from others when possible.

COVID-19 Contact Tracers Needed
NYS started a Contact Tracing Program to curb the spread of COVID-19. The aim of this initiative will be to call every person diagnosed with COVID-19, establish all contacts of this person, and proceed to call and maintain ongoing communication with every contact. NYS plans to hire a team of 6,400 to 17,000 staff statewide, depending on the projected number of COVID-19 cases, to support the NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) and Local Health Departments (LHDs) to perform contact tracing in communities across NYS.
