We have been on the phone around the clock with the City of White Plains and other agencies around the County.We are working on getting every member tested and trying to get thermometers so that everyone at start and end of shift gets their tempature taken, anything 100.4 or more, you should be sent home.If at end of shift, it is your responsibility to monitor yourself.
If you are(were) exposed to someone who tested positive for the Coronavirus and are asymtomatic(no symptoms), you should report to work and according to cdc guidelines wear a mask while working until 14 days after the last high risk exposure.
