For Tuesday, Westchester did not report the following City of Rye numbers. Our inquiry to the county for the daily Rye updated numbers remained unanswered as of Wednesday morning. (Note the county level numbers below from the State are updated.)

(not reported) total COVID-19 cases since inception;
(not reported) active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining (not reported) have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
(not reported) new COVID-19 cases

Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his COVID-19 on the first day of the “Phase Two” reopening.

He appeared at the  Michaelian Office Building along with Director of Economic Development Bridget Gibbons, Croton-on-Hudson Mayor Brian Pugh, Business Council of Westchester EVP John Ravitz, River Market Bar & Kitchen Owner Glenn Vogt, The Rare Bit Restaurant Managing Partner Scott Broccoli, Kee Oyster House Owner Elvi Hoxhaj, Crabtree Kittle House Owner John Crabtree and All Together Now Store Owner Robin Eden-Buco.

Phase two re-opening includes all retail excepts stores within malls, offices, hair salons and barber shops and outdoor dining. “I don’t know if I want to go out to eat or get a haircut first,” said Latimer. “But they are both high on my list.”

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.
