Port Chester Schools to Remain on Full Remote Learning to Mid-January, 2021

Last week Port Chester’s Mayor Richard Filanks explained that his village is now “code orange,” meaning due to rising Covid-19 positivity rates the village has been designated a high risk zone.

The orange zone requires the Village of Port Chester to abide by the following regulations immediately:

Houses of worship have a maximum capacity of 33%, or 25 people.

Gatherings indoors and outdoors have a maximum of 10 people.

High risk, non essential businesses must close, including gyms, barber shops, hair salons, and nail salons.

Outdoor dining is allowed only with a four person maximum per table.

On a related note, Port Chester School district announced Friday night that students will remain on full remote instruction through mid January 2021 due to increase in Covid-19 positivity rates.

Depending on Covid infection rates in mid-January and testing availability, the district said they will examine the possibility of reinstating and phasing in a hybrid model.

Meal distribution continues for the village’s students at their four elementary schools between the hours of 11:00 am and 1:00pm on school days.
