DECLARATION OF LOCAL STATE OF EMERGENCY

 

            On March 7, 2020, the Governor of the State of New York declared a State disaster emergency for the entire State of New York in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  On March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared a national emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  COVID-19 has been documented in Rockland County, New York, cases will continue to increase, and community contact transmission is the primary means of transmission of COVID-19.  On March 16, 2020, the County of Rockland declared a County disaster emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

            In an effort to control the effects of this pandemic in the Town of Ramapo, pursuant to the powers vested in me by New York State Executive Law §24, I hereby declare that a State of Emergency exists in the Town of Ramapo.  The State of Emergency shall remain in effect for thirty (30) days, through April 18, 2020, and may be extended at that time.

            As Chief Executive of the Town of Ramapo, I am issuing this Declaration in order to use the powers granted to me as Chief Executive to issue Emergency Orders as may be necessary to protect the health and wellbeing of the residents of the Town of Ramapo, and request emergency assistance and resources for Town residents and businesses from the County, State and Federal governments.
