The number of official, reported positive COVID-19 cases in Rye has risen to 22, from the 21 number reported yesterday and 15 the day before. Ten people have died in Westchester County due to COVID-19.

County Exec and Rye guy George Latimer is continuing providing updated figures at the county and at the municipal level at his daily press briefing. The county continues to warn the figures come from the state on a delayed basis.

Westchester has 7,187 (this number was 5,944 yesterday and 4,691 the day before that) people that have tested positive for COVID-19 – the greatest per capita rate of any county in the United States. This is attributed to increased testing – 29,515 people have been tested.

Latimer also warned that people need to keep their distance when outside. He said: “We have kept open some parks and facilities around the County. We invite people to use them as a means to get proper exercise. It is becoming increasingly difficult to ensure social distancing in the parks. I am serious about this, we must maintain social distancing in our parks. If we fail to, we must shut our facilities. We do want to, but we must if we don’t adhere to the guidelines.”
