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.
Today, Mayor Brown stated, “I am here in beautiful Delaware Park, just one of Buffalo’s many great parks here in the City of Buffalo, to exercise with my wife, Michelle. While I’ve been working round-the-clock since the start of this situation, it is still important to maintain good health. Even though we all have concerns during these uncertain times, maintaining good physical health will help lessen stress and sustain our ability to stay positive. I encourage residents who are not in vulnerable populations, have consulted with their physicians and been told there is not a significant risk, to exercise to the extent you can.”
