In the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, a group of medical students from NYMC has come together to create a comprehensive collection of information about the virus as well as social resources available to residents of Westchester County. The “COVID-19 Westchester Community Resources” document can be accessed here and a shortened information sheet can be found here.

The LOFT is committed to connecting our community members with appropriate resources during this time.
If you need further assistance, please contact The LOFT staff.
