For Wednesday, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers:
201 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
14 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 187 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
0 new COVID-19 cases
Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer delivered his COVID-19 update from outside the Michaelian Office Building in White Plains. Latimer was joined by Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. and leaders from the Westchester Police and the human rights commission to address the two arrests announced earlier Wednesday related to hate crimes in Bronxville.
“Hateful acts of this kind have no place in Westchester County, ever,” County Executive George Latimer said. “But this is particularly a time when we all need to stand together as we face the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Just like everyone else, Latimer is looking at the NY State COVID-19 tracker for county and state level statistics on the pandemic and at the NY State regional monitoring dashboard to see our progress towards continued reopening.
