County Executive Day Calls For Containment Zone, Temporary Hospital In Rockland


As the number of cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) skyrocket in Rockland County to 3,757 with 42 deaths, Rockland County Executive Ed Day is asking Gov. Andrew Cuomo to establish a containment zone for Ramapo.

The containment zone would include Spring Valley and Monsey from Grandview Avenue, Route 45, College Road and the New York State Thruway, Day said.

“If we do not get a response by tomorrow, we will be going to the White House,” Day said during a news briefing on Thursday afternoon, April 2, the Daily Voice reports.

The highest number of positive cases have popped up within two ZIP codes in Spring Valley (10977) with 760 cases and 722 cases in Monsey (10952), he said.
