The state Public Service Commission approved the 838 area code last September to ensure there will continue to be enough telephone numbers to meet demand in eastern New York.

A New York state senator is hosting an informational session Wednesday evening with two health organizations on the coronavirus. The session that was originally scheduled as an in-person forum has been changed to a teleconference town hall.

Democratic state Senator David Carlucci is holding the telephone town hall with officials from Crystal Run Healthcare and the Mental Health Association of Rockland County to connect residents with experts and address the stress of dealing with the outbreak. Crystal Run Healthcare will have an infectious disease specialist leading the conversation and fielding questions on the coronavirus. Dial-in information for the 6 p.m. call can be found at wamc.org and on Carlucci’s social media pages. The change from a forum at Crystal Run in West Nyack to a telephone town hall comes amid the latest guidance to avoid risking the spread of the coronavirus.

To participate in the Teleconference Town Hall, you may dial: 518-455-2828 and use participant code:167-038. Video of the teleconference will be made available on Senator David Carlucci's Facebook Page at: https://www.facebook.com/SenatorDavidCarlucci.
