The Detachment has received guidance from Marine Corps League National Headquarters, the Department of New York, and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's executive orders in regards to the pandemic of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) that is sweeping the state and country. In light of all of this information, Commandant Muniz and Detachment Executive Board with an abundance of caution and sincere concern for the health and safety of our members, and the Marines that we support, the Marine Corps League Westchester County is postponing all upcoming events through April 17th, effective immediately. With that being said, the April 1st Detachment Meeting is hereby cancelled.

Symptoms:
 
The 2019 novel coronavirus may cause mild to severe respiratory symptoms like:
 
  • cough
  • fever
  • trouble breathing and
  • pneumonia
 
CDC believes at this time that symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the virus.
 
How Does Novel Coronavirus Spread?
 
Most of the early reported cases had contact with a seafood and live animal market, suggesting an animal source of the outbreak. However, most cases are now likely to be spread from person to person by droplets when coughing. Since this virus is very new, health authorities continue to carefully watch how this virus spreads.
 
Prevention:
 
While there is currently no vaccine to prevent this virus, these simple steps can help stop the spread of this and other respiratory viruses:
 
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
