Yonkers Mayor Spano: People are getting  needed services amid coronavirus outbreak

Posted: Updated:

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano is one of many community leaders in the Hudson Valley tasked with managing the fallout from coronavirus.

Starting at City Hall Monday, they are now working with a skeleton crew.

"The trash is still getting picked up. Our first responders are doing remarkably well. Full complement of police and fire. We are doing things a little differently.  Protocols are a little different. But people are getting any services they need,” says Spano.

Spano warns some services at City Hall in particular may be delayed.  But the other issue is health care, where they're trying harder to avoid delays.

"We worry about the number of people they'll have in hospital beds. Number of people infected but remember most of the people get this like a flu and it'll come and it will go,” he says.
