Daily COVID-19 Count: 220 Positives in Rye; 1,449 Westchester Resident Deaths – Wednesday, August 19, 2020


Remember that Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer moved his COVID-19 briefings from daily to a once-a-week on Mondays. So no briefing Tuesday through Fridays, but we do expect to continue to post weekday COVID-19 counts for Rye and Westchester County for the foreseeable future.

For Wednesday, August 19th, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers:

220 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
1 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 219 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
0 new COVID-19 cases

Just like everyone else, county executives look 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.
