Lower COVID-19 Numbers and Property Tax Relief

• Bookmarks: 60

April 21, 2020

On a day when Governor Andrew Cuomo headed down to Washington where he would make his case with President Trump for federal assistance in getting testing equipment to the state, both he and Westchester County Executive George Latimer were able to report continued declines in infections, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.

Statewide, there were 1,300 new diagnoses on Monday and 481 deaths—both marking continued downward trends. That was the case as well in Westchester, where Latimer reported 9,852 cases—the lowest since the peak of the outbreak two weeks ago. Cumulatively, Westchester has seen 24,656 cases since the pandemic hit.

The rivertown, however, have not yet participated in the drop, as the numbers of cases in three of the four villages have continued to crept up, of marginally. The breakdown, along with the cases as a percentage of each village’s population, was as follows:

Dobbs Ferry……….149             1.3%

Irvington………………52             0.8%

.Tarrytown………….170             1.5%

Sleepy Hollow…….232            2.3%

With all but essential businesses still shut down, Latimer was able to announce that the governor had approved his plan to eliminate late payment fees for property taxes in the county
