Buffalo, NY - Mayor Byron W. Brown and the City of Buffalo continue to work to ensure public safety, prioritize the health and welfare of residents and visitors, and reduce circles of exposure to COVID-19 in our community.
As this emergency constantly evolves and the City continues to adapt its response, Mayor Byron W. Brown provided an update on how the virus is impacting Buffalo’s First responders:
Mayor Brown stated, “We will continue to take whatever precautions are necessary to maintain and protect the health and safety of our First Responders.”
With sunshine today and a relatively pleasant forecast through the weekend, Mayor Byron W. Brown continued to call on residents to practice physical distancing.
Mayor Brown stated, “I cannot stress enough about the importance of social distancing. With the arrival of sunshine and warmer temperatures, many of you will want to spend more time outdoors. We continue to hear reports of residents congregating in large numbers—playing basketball or other sports. These activities involve physical contact and can aid in spreading the coronavirus, which poses a serious threat to everyone in our community. Your health, your family’s health, your neighbor’s health, everyone’s health is on the line right now.”
Mayor Brown provided an update on the local Census Response Rate to date.
If you or anyone you know is looking for work, the Buffalo Employment and Training Center is ready to help.
Mayor Brown called on City residents to again help replenish the shortage of blood in our community.

Mayor Brown concluded, “This emergency is truly testing us as a community but I know that if we continue to follow guidance by our federal, state and county officials, we will get through it, together. We must continue to take care of ourselves and each other. We are the City of Good Neighbors. God bless all of you.”
