House Party in Rockland Allegedly Sparks COVID-19 Cluster

Another house party with young people has created a new COVID-19 cluster, this time right here in Rockland. The County Health Department is trying to contain the cluster which is believed to have started at a house party last month at a home in Clarkstown. Rockland Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert said the host was sick and spread the virus to at least eight guests, and they’ve been avoiding her contact tracers during their investigation…

County Executive Ed Day says he will not let anyone compromise the health of Rockland residents, and subpoenas are being issued to those who don’t speak with the Health Department…

Violators face fines of $2,000 a day if they don’t cooperate.

COVID-19 by the numbers now, in Rockland, we’ve got 5 in the hospital being checked out, another 5 confirmed with coronavirus. The state says we’ve got 13,602 reported cases, and the Rockland Health Department confirms 668 fatalities here in the county, no increase since yesterday.
