Town of Mamaroneck Coronavirus Update for June 2, 2020
Good evening fellow residents, this is Nancy Seligson, Mamaroneck Town Supervisor with an update for June 2nd. If the Coronavirus pandemic wasn’t enough, the nation and our region is now convulsed with facing the reality of racial problems in our society. One man’s death is a tragedy, but the root of the problems can be found in the systems that perpetuate the inequalities. As we hear more and more of what it’s like to be a person of color in America, I know we stand together wanting our community to include and be respectful of everyone regardless of skin color, race, gender, age and immigration status. I’m proud that the Town of Mamaroneck Police Department operates with these same standards and is trained and educated to continue them.
Several people have approached me with the desire to hold an event to honor the protests and demonstrations for racial equality in our community. I am pleased to report that I’m working with the mayors from the Village of Mamaroneck and Larchmont to plan an event to be held next week.
There is a special event this week to honor the MHS graduates of the Class of 2020. There will be vehicle parades from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm on Thursday, June 4th. The cars will start from Harbor Island Park and will take routes to their respective elementary schools. Please feel free to cheer them on from your homes. Mayor Walsh, Mayor Murphy and I have proclaimed Thursday, June 4th, Mamaroneck High School Class of 2020 Day!
As you may know, the Town Recreation Day Camps are cancelled for this summer due to the challenges of meeting COVID 19 protocols and keeping the children safe. I am hopeful however that the Town may be able to open the Hommocks Pool in July with restrictions. We will be submitting a plan to the Health Department for review. Stay tuned!
We are proceeding through Phase 1 of the reopening and hope to be in Phase 2 soon. Please remember to continue to wear a mask in public if you are within 6 feet of another person. We need to prevent any increases in Coronavirus cases.
Thank you and goodbye.
