While the data in White Plains and in the county as a whole continue to be positive it is essential that people remember to wear their masks inside public establishments and when they are likely to be within 6 feet of others when outside. Recent studies have confirmed that the wearing of masks is effective in reducing the spread of the virus and may prove vital in preventing a second wave of illness. Please continue to wear your masks; it’s a sign of respect for others. Remember: I wear my mask to protect you, and you wear your mask to protect me.
