Westchester County is reporting 148 COVID-19 positive cases in Rye as of Thursday, April 30, 2020.

During his daily briefing, Rye guy and county boss George Latimer appeared from the board of trustees room in the Village of Pleasantville municipal building where was was delivering masks earlier in the day. The county will open two more golf courses (in Yonkers) this weekend, as well as opening the Bronx River for bicycling on Sunday.

When asked about the potential for opening Rye Playland, Latimer said “it is a completely different experience… much, much harder to insure social distancing.” June would be the earliest for a Playland opening but Latimer said it is “a difficult facility to open.”

  • Tested positive: 28,970
