Curran encourages residents to take ‘staycation,’ as cases across country surge
Nassau officials report that the number of COVID-19 cases continues to decline in the county – with 28 new cases reported in the past 24 hours.
In addition, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran says as of Sunday, 0.5% of those tested for COVID-19 have tested positive.
Curran encouraged residents to continue to enjoy the outdoors with dining and to take advantage of golf, tennis and pools.
Curran says as they watch other areas of the country see an increase in the number of cases, they are encouraging residents to reconsider their summer travel plans.
“We are asking people to consider, because of the spikes we are seeing, we are encouraging residents to do a staycation. Make the most of what you got on Long Island,” says Curran.
Nassau will open the county’s five pools this Friday, July 3. Food trucks will be operational at pools as well.
Lastly, Curran says the county is waiting on state guidance about weddings and school.
“We are having constructive conversation with the state, we are not really sure what the protocols will be,” says Curran.
