The Yonkers police are asking people who are self-quarantined due to COVID-19 to report that information to them as they work in an area increasingly impacted by the coronavirus.
Police are urging city residents to call them at 914-377-7900 if they are self-quarantined.
It is a voluntary request that the city is making “in a continuing effort to ensure the safety of our community members, police officers, and first responders,” police said in a statement on March 16.

The information will be used to create an alert in the city’s computer-aided dispatch system to notify first responders of the need for special resources in case of a response to a self-quarantined resident’s location.
