Dear Village Folks:

Halloween 2020: Have Fun. Stay Safe.

 

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson will allow Trick or Treating in this year of the pandemic. We want children to experience the fun of this cultural tradition.

And we want everyone to be safe.

So that means that the Trick or Treaters must wear face masks – in addition to any masks for their costumes. They must social distance and travel in small numbers, with kids in their circles.

Parents must instruct their children to be safe, to abide by precautions that have been in effect for months.

To those handing out the goodies, you have several options:

  • Wear a mask yourself as you distribute candy;
  • Place candy outside at the end of your driveway or on your stoop;
  • Don’t participate this year.

Orange County Health Commissioner has issued a comprehensive advisory on how to safely navigate Halloween.

 

All the best,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor

Dear Village Folks:

Having been dealing with COVID-19 for more than half a year, we need to remember the importance of wearing masks when we’re unable to maintain social distancing of at least six feet.

Mask wearing and social distancing helps stop the spread of COVID-19 and sends a strong message to all you meet that you care about their health.

 

So please continue to comply with wearing masks and social distancing. We want to continue to keep the rate of COVID-19 low.

 

All the best,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department recently received a traffic enforcement grant from the NYS Governor' s Traffic Safety Committee, as part of this enforcement grant Cornwall-on­ Hudson PD will be participating in the New York State Governor's Traffic Safety Committee's, Distracted Driving Initiative, between October 08, 2020 thru October 12, 2020. Cornwall-on­ Hudson PD officers will be on assigned patrols looking for violators who are utilizing their cell phone while operating a motor- vehicle.

What is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system - anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.

Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.

You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing.

Consequences of Distracted Driving?

Using a cell phone while driving creates enormous potential for deaths and injuries on U.S.

roads. In 2018 alone, 2,841people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. Among those killed were: 1,730 drivers, 605 passengers, 400 pedestrians and 77 bicyclists.

Census deadline is September 30

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson still needs to push to respond to the Census 2020. The deadline is Wednesday, September 30.

The village has reached 73% mark with a week to go but is still far from 100%. If you have internet access, you can respond here: my2020census.gov/login. If you don’t have the census mailer, you can go here: my2020census.gov/app/intro/state. If you prefer to respond by phone, or have questions, call: 844-330-2020.

Census results will guide lawmakers regarding where to distribute more than $675 billion in federal funding to infrastructure, schools, firefighters, hospitals, libraries and other vital services in Orange County.

Census data also informs how federal funding will be used toward hundreds of programs in the county, including Medicaid, Head Start and block grants for mental health services.

Let’s be counted, Cornwall-on-Hudson!
