Rockland County Executive Ed Day cautioned that the county could be heading toward a "financial tsunami" that could be the 2008 recession blush.

"Calling what is heading towards us a 'financial tsunami' could be a huge understatement, as this may make the recession of 2008, where we plummeted into massive deficit and suffered the worst fiscal collapse in the history of our county, look like child's play," Day said. 

"The difference this time is twofold ... we have worked very hard over the past six years to reverse that trajectory and unlike then, we will make the hard decisions to protect this county as we navigate these treacherous waters."

According to the New York State Department of Health, there have been 308,314 positive COVID-19 cases statewide, which have resulted in the deaths of 18,610 New Yorkers.
