A virtual community meeting in Port Washington featured a detailed discussion on a spike of COVID-19 cases in the areas.
More than a dozen speakers addressed the issues, including local doctors, local religious leaders, the school district and law enforcement.
The goal was to present a united front when it comes to abiding by health guidelines and to ensure that schools can remain open.
"Remember it's not just about you and your family. It's about your neighbors, our schools, our businesses and our elderly population that's also affected if proper measures are not taken," says Det. Anthony Guzzello, of the Port Washington Police Department.
Last Friday, Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth sent a letter to the community reminding residents to remain vigilant and to continue to social distance, wash your hands and wear a mask in public.
