Rockland County Exec Says Enforcement Orders For COVID-19 Rules Are Set

Apr 9, 2020

The Rockland County executive is trying to curb the COVID-19 pandemic as residents in certain pockets of the county ignore social distancing rules. Following last week’s uncertainty about enforcing the rules, and a back-and-forth with the governor’s office, Republican Ed Day says there is now clarity as confirmed cases in his county continue to rise.

Rockland has more than 2,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 154 deaths, according to the county’s website dashboard.

Earlier this week, Day announced that all county parks were closed.
