COUNTY EXECUTIVE LAURA CURRAN PROVIDES COVID-19 UPDATE

Nassau County’s daily COVID-19 positivity rate is 4.4%, while our 7-day average is currently 4.8%. At the moment hospital capacity is not a pressing threat in Nassau County, but the trend is heading in the wrong direction. To save lives and prevent further restrictions on restaurants and other businesses, we must do everything we can to hold the line. At the peak of the pandemic, we had almost 2,600 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, and 505 patients on ventilators. As of yesterday, we have 337 hospitalized with COVID-19 and 32 patients on ventilators. We do expect these numbers to go up, and Nassau is ready to increase capacity for hospital and ICU units as needed. I’ve been in constant conversation with hospital executives to ensure preparedness for a potential surge in hospitalization, as well as the upcoming pivot to vaccine storage and distribution. As we manage the increase in cases due to the cold weather, the County will do everything in its power to keep schools open. As County Executive, I’ve made keeping schools open one of my highest priorities. Robust testing is key to keeping schools open, and the County will continue to do all it can to ensure school districts can meet the State’s testing guidelines.

Statement From County Executive Laura Curran regarding COVID-19:

Nassau County’s COVID-19 positivity rate is 4.1%, while our hospitals are reporting 237 hospitalized with COVID-19 and 36 patients in the ICU. Although Nassau’s positivity rate is running behind the State average of 4.6%, the trend we’re seeing right now is clear and concerning. As hospitalizations continue to rise, Nassau County is working with the State and our local hospitals to ensure emergency hospital procedures are in place. In the meantime, we all know what works to control the virus. By continuing to use common sense, we can save lives, keep kids in school, and ensure businesses stay open this winter.

I remember the days when your publisher actually recognized the Village of Floral Park and had the Floral Park Dispatch. Then you did away with it and included FP in the New Hype Park paper but never print any stories about FP. Sad.

One more day to vote for the better democrat.
REP. TOM SUOZZI MISLEADS VOTERS ON KEY ENDORSEMENTS Gun Safety Groups Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety State that Suozzi Campaign Falsely Claims Their Endorsements in NY3 Race. Rep. Tom Suozzi has been repeatedly touting false endorsements from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund to tens of thousands of voters across the district in both mail and digital media ahead of the June 23rd New York primary. In a statement posted June 19th to their page and echoed by their founder Shannon Watts on Twitter, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America clarified its endorsements in the Congressional race in New York’s 3rd District. “As the New York Primary approaches, Moms Demand Action hopes that you are all making a plan to vote! We want to clarify that neither Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America or Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund has made any endorsements in the U.S. House race for New York's 3rd Congressional District. Both candidates, Melanie D'Arrigo and Tom Suozzi, have received the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Distinction. We applaud both candidates for their commitment to gun safety!,” the statement reads. “I am a Moms Demand Action volunteer and am committed to fighting gun violence. I feel honored to be a gun sense distinction candidate because I know firsthand the organizing work Moms Demand Action puts in to make our communities safe. I don't know why the Congressman decided to mislead voters by touting endorsements he did not receive. It's bizarre.” said NY-3 Congressional Candidate Melanie D'Arrigo. “We are very proud of all of our endorsements both from large national organizations like Indivisible and the National Organization for Women to local grassroots groups like Long Island Activists, Muslims for Progress, No IDC, LINC and Sunrise Movement Huntington. Endorsements are a reflection of the trust built between the candidates and organizations and the faith they have in a candidate to champion their causes. While some endorsements may be no more than rubber stamps, others from groups that actually organize on behalf of their communities, are to me, more meaningful. It’s disrespectful to the organizations and their work to break that trust.” ABOUT MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA: Founded by Shannon Watts in the days after the Sandy Hook shooting, Moms Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We pass stronger gun laws and work to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families. We also work in our own communities and with business leaders to encourage a culture of responsible gun ownership. We know that gun violence is preventable, and we’re committed to doing what it takes to keep families safe. ### 3rd District Democrats New York Proud To Be A Democrat ~ Long Island Long Island for Biden (Group)
