About 5-6” of snow came down and blanketed Rockland County yesterday. Crews were well-prepared in advance for this one, which came in quietly and left quietly as well.
There were no significant power outages to report. Yesterday’s storm did force the Rockland County Department of Health to cancel their COVID-19 vaccination clinic. It was originally slated for 9 AM – 1 PM Sunday. It’s been rescheduled for today from 1 PM – 7 PM. If you had a vaccination appointment for Sunday you can get it today, just show up in Pomona at your convenience between 1 and 7 today. If you can’t get there today, call the County’s COVID-19 Hotline at 845-238-1956 to cancel. The county says you’ll be prioritized for a rescheduled appointment when they get their next batch of vaccine from the state sometime this week.
Rockland’s County Executive Ed Day says though he qualifies, he won’t be getting his shot just yet…
