Re: Joint Statement- Southold Town/Southold Police Department/Greenport Village 

This has been, and continues to be, a difficult time for all of us. There are glimmers of light. The community of Southold has taken all of the necessary steps to protect other members of this town, our families and ourselves. That is something we can all be proud of. Southold has seen a decline in the increase of new confirmed COVID-19 than we had seen during the month of March. Chief Flatley, Greenport Village Mayor George Hubbard and Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell want to assure everyone that we will continue to work together with all of our partners including, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and his response team, other towns and villages and the Suffolk County Department of Health to meet the challenges that are still before us.  As a community, we must stay vigilant and continue to work together:    

Southold Town Police Chief Martin Flatley:

“The last several weeks have been extremely challenging as we all try to adjust to the Executive Orders coming from Albany but, all for a good reason. This is our way of helping to flatten the curve of this national pandemic. We have watched our confirmed Cases of COVID1-19 rise steadily though the Month of March and we have suffered the loss of life associated with it. Now is not the time to let our guard down as we experience the downswing of the curve.”   

Mayor George Hubbard:

 “Thank you all for following the guidelines set forth by the CDC and New York State and, together, we can continue to slow the spread and keep each other safe. Village Hall may be closed but, we continue to work and stand ready to serve you once we can open again. Thank you to our police, first responders, medical personnel, teachers and neighbors-stay strong!”

Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell:

 “These past several weeks have been challenging, to be sure but, the people of Southold have shown their strength and resolve in adjusting to an event like no other ever before. Our schools,which made sure the education of our children would continue. Our volunteers and community based organizations who came forward in our time of need and, our heroes, the first responders and healthcare workers, whose courage and commitment never wavered.  We are at a critical juncture. We must continue to be diligent and take all precautions necessary to continue the trend. 

There will continue to be challenges that face all of us. The new normal might not be the normal we’ve known. As a community, we must stay the course and follow all safety precautions as we flatten the curve as we look to help our small businesses, our community members and ourselves move to a brighter day.”
