Welcome Letter

Dear Friends,

I am working with state and local officials on the COVID-19 crisis facing Westchester, our state and nation.Our county is one of the areas most affected by the virus in the country.Current information and guidance is changing daily as we assess and attempt to stop the spread of the virus.

On the left hand side of my website you will see a link to the NYS Department of Health which contains daily updates and several fact sheets for how to limit the spread of the disease and what to do if you are experiencing symptoms.

If you believe you have been exposed, you should contact your primary care physician who can refer you for testing. Expanded testing opportunities are being made available with testing requests prioritized according to DOH criteria. To see if you qualify for testing, contact either your primary care provider or the State hotline at 888-364-3065.

Important hotline numbers are:

  • People under self-quarantine or exposure to known case:(866) 588-0195
  • NYS Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline:(888) 364-3065 (24/7)
  • Westchester County COVID-19 Information:Call 211

You may also access the CDC website athttps://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

The response of the Governor and state government has been aggressive and responsive to the health and safety needs of the situation. I will continue to make available the latest information from health officials. Feel free to call my office directly if I can be of assistance at 914-939-7028.

Warm regards,
Steven Otis
