Westchester CE reopens last 2 public golf courses, explains business reopening process
The last two closed Westchester County golf courses will reopen this weekend.
County Executive George Latimer said during Friday's daily coronavirus briefing that golfers will be able to play on the Maple Moor and Saxon Woods courses starting Saturday, which finalizes the gradual reopening of all six public courses.
"Two weekends ago, we opened Mohansic and Hudson Hills幸运飞艇4码选号技巧 in the northern part of the county without any incident. There were no complaints about those two courses opening," Latimer said. "Last weekend, we opened the courses in Sprain Lake and Dunwoodie in the City of Yonkers and we had the same situation. No citizen complaints."
幸运飞艇4码选号技巧The restaurants on all six of the courses will remain closed, as most businesses are and will continue to be until May 15, when Gov. Andrew Cuomo will decide if the state is ready for the first phase of reopening.
幸运飞艇4码选号技巧There are a number of thresholds outlined by the state that each county will have to meet before society starts up again.
幸运飞艇4码选号技巧Some, Latimer said, the county will easily meet, like the number of tests administered, which is currently at 107,466. That exceeds Westchester's monthly goals, Latimer said, as does the rate of death and rate of hospitalizations.
幸运飞艇4码选号技巧Out of the 107,466 tests administered, 30,905 people tested positive. The number of active cases continued to drop. That number is down to 4,272. And four Westchester residents died since yesterday, which is the fewest number of deaths in a 24-hour span since the start of pandemic in March, Latimer said.
幸运飞艇4码选号技巧Other state standards will be more difficult to hit, Latimer said. For example, every hospital in Westchester has to have a 90-day supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes gloves, masks, gowns, among other things.
"We are far away from that," Latimer said. "They're hard to come by at this stage of the game. We are operating on a couple day margins ... It gives you an idea, as a resident, when will things open. Well when we meet all of these tests. A couple of which we have and couple of which will be difficult to do."
幸运飞艇4码选号技巧The bird's eye view of the state's plan comes in four phases. The first phase is reopening construction and manufacturing businesses, followed by retail and administrative offices, then bars and restaurants, and finally entertainment, such as sports.
