For Friday, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers:
204 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
2 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 202 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);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 did not hold a COVID-19 briefing on Friday. Latimer indicated last Thursday he is starting to wind down his daily COVID-19 briefings. He has eliminated Friday briefings and plans to stop the briefings after Monday, July 6th.
MyRye.com will continue to carry the COVID-19 counts as long as county and state sources make these available.
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.
