Update 4/3/20:

TARA, The Animal Rights Alliance, has suspended all services for the safety of our clients and staff. This situation has been challenging and the animal welfare community will be hit hard with the increase of kittens born due to lack of spay/neuter services available. Our shelters will be forced to take in and feed more animals than ever before and we will all need support.

TARA has suspended services until May 4th. We will keep everyone updated as things change and we do hope to get back to offering high quality, low cost services as soon as safely possible.

From Governor Cuomo:

Good morning everyone,

During his Coronavirus briefing, Governor Cuomo confirmed 5,707 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 20,875 confirmed cases in New York State.

New York City had a total of 3,260 new positive cases, bringing its total to 12,305.

The Governor announced an initial delivery of hospital supplies to the Jacob K. Javits Center where FEMA has started to build a 1,000-bed temporary hospital that will help increase New York’s hospital capacity to combat COVID-19 and open next week. This is in addition to the four sites selected by the Army Corps of Engineers that will create temporary hospitals in downstate New York with total capacity up to 4,000.

The Governor also announced that three former Secretaries to the Governor — Steve Cohen, Bill Mulrow and Larry Schwartz — are joining the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force. Mulrow and Cohen will be tasked with developing a NYS Forward Plan - a strategy to restart the economy following the NYS on Pause executive order. Schwartz is tasked with helping the State acquire healthcare equipment and supplies and increasing New York’s hospital surge capacity.

Governor Cuomo signed an executive order requiring all hospitals to increase capacity by a minimum of 50 percent, with a goal of increasing capacity by 100 percent.

The Governor also launched the ’NY Stronger Together’ campaign urging New Yorkers to stay home, stop the spread and save lives. As part of the campaign, celebrities including Robert De Niro, Danny DeVito, Ben Stiller and La La Anthony have sent videos of themselves at home to reinforce the Governor’s message that young people must stay home not for themselves, but to help protect older and more vulnerable New Yorkers. The campaign will also aim to highlight donations from major corporations, celebrities, philanthropic organizations to help increase the state’s supply capacity.

Additionally, the Governor announced that the state is opening a drive-thru COVID-19 mobile testing facility in the Bronx.

In an effort to keep New Yorkers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today issued an executive order delaying village elections statewide until the April 28 primary election.

"Our top priority has been keeping New Yorkers safe and stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus," Governor Cuomo said.
