It may be time to put your face mask back on when you're inside – that’s the latest recommendation from Westchester County Executive George Latimer.
During his weekly COVID-19 update, Latimer said there is no mask mandate or any mandate being implemented, even though cases are on a rise. He says the county will continue to monitor cases closely, especially as Memorial Day and summer activities near.
"Because our pool, our parks, beaches are all outdoor facilities we haven't gotten to the point to do that because obviously when your outdoors there's less likelihood of virus spread because of the open air and air movement," said Latimer. 
Beaches will still open on the last Friday of this month - Memorial Day weekend - and pools will open the last Friday in June.
