Two have been added to the Rockland COVID-19 death count, bringing the total since the pandemic began to 682. COVID-19 by the numbers now, here in Rockland, we’ve got one in the hospital being examined, another 19 have been confirmed with coronavirus, and 1,026 active cases. The state says since the crisis began, we’ve had a total of 17,269 reported cases, 62 more than Tuesday.
Arizona and Maryland have been added to New York’s COVID-19 travel advisory. No areas have been removed. The eleven states not on the list include Oregon, Maine, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Vermont, Washington, California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut. Those last three meet the criteria for the travel advisory, but the governors of each say putting them on the quarantine list is impractical. They highly discourage non-essential travel to and from those areas for now but won’t make residents quarantine if traveling among the three.
The state’s moratorium on COVID-related commercial evictions and foreclosures has been extended through January 1st. This gives commercial tenants and mortgagors additional time to catch up on rent or mortgage, or renegotiate lease terms to avoid foreclosure. The moratorium on residential evictions has also been extended to January 1st.
