Yonkers City Hall Employee Tests Positive For Covid-19
YONKERS, NY – March 14, 2020 -- An employee who works in Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano’s Communications Office at Yonkers City Hall has tested positive for COVID-19. No other employees have exhibited symptoms, and the employee has not been present in City Hall since March 6th. The employee did not interact with the public, and fortunately is recovering well at home.
As a precaution, several employees who worked in close proximity will self- quarantine until March 20th. The Communications Office will close on Monday for additional cleaning, although all common areas at City Hall have been undergoing cleaning several times daily for the past week, and that protocol will continue.
All other offices at City Hall will continue to be open for business, although City Hall is developing protocols to reduce public interaction in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among both staff and the public.
All persons wishing to transact business with City Hall or its departments are advised to call ahead to determine whether particular offices are open to the public or have switched to online and telephonic contact whenever possible.
