Welcome to Phase Three. Tattoo parlors are open.
For Tuesday, 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2 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 202 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
1 new COVID-19 cases
Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his COVID-19 briefing from the The Elephant Hotel in Somers. He was joined by Somers Town Supervisor Rick Morrissey. Latimer welcomed Phase Three. Perhaps most noticeable will be restaurants that can now offer modified indoor dining.
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.
