A Message from Supervisor Bosworth: Coronavirus Update
Last Updated 6/3/21:
I wanted to first let you know about our fireworks. The bad news is that, unfortunately, Saturday night's planned fireworks display has been postponed due to the forecast of heavy winds and rain. The good news is that it will be taking place over Labor Day weekend on Saturday, September 4. Details of the event will be provided in the coming weeks, but you can circle September 4 on your calendar now.
We are continuing to see encouraging news related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the path back to normalcy is indeed long, we are proud of the way you have remained diligent about following social-distancing and mask-wearing guidelines. Your collective commitment to maintaining the overall health of our community has gotten us to a stage in this pandemic where a full reopening is no longer a distant reality.
I would like to urge you to please continue to remain cautious – the pandemic is not yet over. We have worked so hard, and we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Our way out of this crisis is through the vaccine. Demand has decreased significantly, and appointments are much easier to schedule with many locations offering walk-ins. For the latest information, or to find out where you can go to get vaccinated, please visit northhempsteadny.gov/vaccine.
Looking ahead, we are pleased to again host our drive-in movies, drive-in concerts, and Concerts by Candlelight for North Hempstead Town residents. Families, friends, and neighbors are encouraged to swing by and enjoy the entertaining lineup of movies and bands we have in store. Upcoming films include Black Panther, the Karate Kid, and Jumanji. For a full listing of upcoming North Hempstead movies and concerts, please visit northhempsteadny.gov/summer. As a reminder, these events are absolutely free, but everyone attending is encouraged to bring canned goods or other non-perishable food items to contribute to the Town's ongoing food drive.
Also, with temperatures on the rise, we invite you, our North Hempstead residents, to join us at one of our many pools and beaches to cool down this summer. This includes the pools for special park district residents at Harbor Hills, which opens on May 29, and Clinton G. Martin Park, which opens on June 19. Also opening on June 19 for Town residents is the pool at Manorhaven Beach Park. In addition, the pool facilities at Martin “Bunky” Reid Park and Whitney Pond Park will be open starting June 26. For more information about signing up, early bird rates, hours of operation, and safety guidelines, please visit northhempsteadny.gov/parks. Please know that we will be re-evaluating our health and safety guidelines as the summer progresses. After a very long year, we can now anticipate a far more carefree and enjoyable summer.
In closing, as we approach Memorial Day, let us all remember its purpose is to recognize the heroic men and women who lost their lives while serving our great nation. We have the deepest respect and gratitude for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice while protecting us. Without them, we would not be able to enjoy the freedom and liberty that we are so fortunate to have today. Please take a moment on Monday, May 31 to remember and honor our fallen heroes and their families.
As always, please be smart and stay safe.
