With so much information out there, I feel it’s important you hear from your Mayor providing a critical COVID-19 update.
Since December 1, 2020, Yonkers has seen an increase of 316 new confirmed COVID-19 cases. As we are now in the midst of the second wave, increases in new cases are seen city-wide.
While we have observed this uptick city-wide, testing in the Yonkers Public Schools has yielded less than a quarter percent positivity rate.
Simply put, COVID-19 spreading is not occurring in the Yonkers schools.
Data has shown wearing a mask, practicing social distancing of 6 feet, washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use an antiseptic, and making smart choices will help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Forward this update to your friends, and let’s beat this virus.
Stay well, and safe.

Below find the update issued on December 5, 2020 by NYS Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Press Office. Focus Zonw is specific to the City of Yonkers.

    Any news on the street naming… “you heard the City Council Meeting. The renaming I understand won the majority votes required. You may or may not be comfortable with the issue however let’s be fair. In all the years I have been working the Yonkers “beat”, there have been streets named after one person or another, some deserving, some absolutely not. If Yonkers only learned to be consistent with their posture on the multiple concerns in CoY, we would all be better off. Alas, the criticism is one sided and not fair. So while you may wish to cause a stir about one such street naming, I can name 5 off the top of my head that were undeserving, in fact they were each travesties.” Kindly, Hezi

    1. Hezi, this guy was carrying enough drugs for … “i can’t ague with your facts. The point is that this article has nothing to do with the issue you brough up as is no stipulated under every article on the website. OFF-TOP comments are trashed. If, as noted you have interest on a specific topic, direct your email to and I will do my best to cover it. If you don’t ascribe your name, the issue will never see the light of day, unless that is, that I may be covering the issue you want broach and that is the same topic I was fully aware of. Kindly, Hezi”
