For Thursday, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers:

203 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
3 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 200 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
1 new COVID-19 cases

Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his COVID-19 briefing from the Michaelian Office Building in White Plains. He was joined by Village of Scarsdale Mayor Marc Samwick. Latimer talked about phasing out his daily COVID-19 updates “I’ve been asked when do I shut down the George show.” See our article from Thursday morning on when the COVID-19 daily updates will be phased out. Latimer announced county offices will be closed Friday to honor Juneteenth.

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.
