[ARCHIVED] Irvington Update - April 15, 2020

A Message from the Irvington Police Department

Scammers are experts at shifting tactics. This is especially true as they take advantage of anxieties related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The FCC has some helpful information on these scams, including audio samples of actual scams. If you think you’ve been a victim of a Coronavirus scam or any other scam, contact the Irvington Police Department immediately at (914) 591-8080.  Remember, do your research on everything, especially people randomly offering Coronavirus help or those soliciting for donations. We are asking you to inform and check on the elderly about these scams too as our elderly neighbors and relatives are targets for these scammers.  As always, the members of the Irvington Police Department are here for you. Please Stay safe, wear a mask in public and stay socially distanced. We will get through this.

More about Face Coverings

In response to the Governor’s recent Executive Order regarding face coverings, the NYS Department of Health has issued guidance. The guidance helps answer many common questions including:

What is considered a face covering?

Face coverings include, but are not limited to, cloth (e.g. homemade sewn, quick cut, bandana), surgical masks, N-95 respirators, and face shields.

What is considered “Direct Contact”?

Direct contact with the public is to be determined by each employer. At a minimum, direct contact with the public includes any employee who is routinely within close contact (i.e., six feet or less) with members of the public, including but not limited to customers or clients. Interaction between co-workers is not considered direct contact with the public.

Can an employee use their own face covering?

Employees are allowed to use their own face coverings, but shall not be mandated to do so by their employer.

Who enforces this Executive Order?

This Executive Order may be enforced by local governments or local law enforcement.

When does this Executive Order go into effect?
