Dear Residents:
 
The Village and Town of Ossining have received considerable guidance from various County, State, and Federal agencies of how to contain the spread of COVID-19, which is shared on the Village’s website via the  Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) page and on the Town’s Website via COVID-19 Resources page . We have since implemented precautionary actions to limit the exposure and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in all of Ossining’s Municipal Buildings. Currently, there are no reported cases in the Ossining, however it is crucial the Village and Town take these precautionary steps.
 
The Village and Town Department Heads and Staff are prepared to address the needs of residents and business owners, as well as answer any questions via email or phone. We encourage you to access  Department Information  on the  Village Website   as well as the  Town of Ossining’s Website  to guide you on how to best address your particular issue or concern.
