City update March 12

This robocall update is being sent Citywide this morning:

Robocall 3-12

This is Mayor Noam Bramson, with an update on the cononavirus outbreak in our city.

Here’s what’s new:

The National Guard has arrived in Westchester and will be working here in New Rochelle beginning today to assist in the delivery of meals, cleaning of public facilities, and the distribution of supplies. The Guard will not be engaged in any military or policing activities, and is operating purely as logistical support.

The containment area in the Wykagyl neighborhood takes effect today, Within this area, large gatherings at large institutions are prohibited. But, contrary to false rumors, there is no change in daily life. Except for individuals subject to quarantine, residents are free to come and go, and businesses are open.

In an effort to support our business community through this period, New Rochelle is offering free parking at all metered spaces citywide for at least the next two weeks. New Rochelle is open for business, and if you are a healthy adult, please continue to patronize our local restaurants and shops.

Now, a reminder on previously reported information:

Nursing homes and assisted facilities will not accept visitors until further notice, as a means of limiting exposure for our most vulnerable population.

If you experience symptoms, contact your doctor or health care provider for individual guidance on testing. If you do not have a doctor, then call ahead to the emergency room, do not simply show up.

All of us can protect ourselves and our families by following common sense public health guidelines, including reasonable social distancing.

Additional information is available by calling 888-364-3065 or 2-1-1 or by visiting

This is a big challenge for New Rochelle, but our community is rising to the occasion by demonstrating strength, resilience, calm, and support for our neighbors.

Additional information will follow as needed.
